The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
Two Culver City establishments made Thrillist's recent run-down of the city's best bars with hidden entrances.
First on their list is Blind Barber (psst: it's located at 10797 Washington Blvd., through the door in the back of the barber shop, in the same building that houses Best Buy). Here's what the publication said about Blind Barber: "This NYC-imported cocktail bar features both award-winning mixologists and a where-the-hell-is-it entrance, but what makes it special is the fact that it's one of the only places in town where you can get an old-fashioned Flattop and an Old Fashioned on the same visit."
Also: keep an eye on the events listings of Culver City Times (yeah, this site!) for information about for special comedy shows organized at Blind Barber. The most recent was on April 27th, and featured the hilarious Kyle Kinane! The shows are by invitation only, but to get on the guest list, just email firstname.lastname@example.org. You have to be on the guest list to get in, but free if you're on the list.
Third on their list is the Seventy7 Lounge in downtown Culver City (it's in the alley that runs between Cardiff Ave. and Main St., identified only by a glowing sign reading "Cocktails.") "Seventy7 Lounge continues the Swingers thing," says Thrillist, "with stiff drinks, burlesque shows, and an entrance that's so money, it doesn't even know it."
