People eat three times a day to prevent mouthy mouths from brashly blurting out their distaste for the rest of the digestive system. Today's Groupon prevents inner-system quarreling by subduing chatty cheeks: for $13, you get $30 worth of comfort-infused fare and drinks at Nikki's on Venice Beach.
Nikki's creative assortment of tasty appetizers, salads, burgers, sandwiches, and entrees lays the foundation for a bevy of specialty beach beverages. Treat your table to a plate of Nikki's homemade nachos, piled high with beans, pico de gallo, sour cream, and guacamole ($8, add chicken or steak for an extra $3), or devour four pint-sized sliders ($12) with your choice of protein to pave the food pipes for a savory entree. For dinner, get your grabbers on a 72 Market burger topped with lettuce, tomato, and red onion ($11), or skillfully fold your green thumbs around a veggie wrap stuffed with seasoned and grilled peppers, onions, mushrooms, and zucchini in a sun-dried tomato tortilla with jack cheese ($11). Classic comfort food such as meatloaf served with a side of garlic mashed potatoes ($14) will make diners feel even cozier when blanketed with another matured childhood favorite: strawberry lemonade made with Absolut Citron vodka ($10). Top everything off with The Half Baked, a half-pound, barely baked chocolate-chip cookie-dough base topped with three scoops of vanilla ice cream and drizzled with chocolate syrup ($6), just like everyone's favorite substitute teacher.
Nikki's opens its doors at 4 p.m. Monday–Friday and noon on the weekends, satisfying sip-and-savory seekers until 1 a.m. each night. Drop in the chic confines to cool off after a day of rigorous sunbathing, or visit Nikki's after a long week at the office to enjoy a well-deserved taste of the beach without the gritty texture.
- I love this bar for plain ol' drinking on any night of the week just because of the cool location, clientele and vibe inside. – Liz K., Yelp
- On weeknights, its a very relaxed crowd that tends to go for the sports games on the tvs; in the summer, you'll see more people in swimsuits than not (mark of a true local/beach restaurant). – Normna J., Yelp
- Great open space, fun music and people, great bar food - all enhanced with wonderful CA sunshine. – martinikitty13, Citysearch
