Foursquare Tips

  • To find Basement Tavern, you'll have to enter in back, pass by the wafting stench of trash bins, navigate through a loading dock and then descend a flight of stairs, and that's just to get inside.
  • Happy hour everyday food and drinks from 5-8 pm
  • The tavern delivers on many fronts. It's a community bar, no cover is always a plus, it's got a great bar menu, and did we forget to mention it's in a historic Victorian home
  • try the basement burro... it's refreshing!
  • Monday is best night..Butch Walker is playing there these days then it gets clastrophobia like.
  • If you can't get in, check out the Victorian
  • Get there before 10 PM...
  • Awesome vibe. Good music. Decent beer selection. Chandeliers are a fine touch.
  • To avoid the tourists in Santa Monica, you'll have to go underground.
  • Janelle is the shit
  • El stano est muy padre, pero tambin hay gran ambiente arriba
  • Any place with two live bands is cool by me
  • Cool vibe but Way too small. Can't really move at all
  • Pretend you're the only one that knows about this place and try to impress your friends.
  • Bartenders in old-time dress serve strong cocktails, a live band plays most nights, and a good time is guaranteed!
  • Monday is burlesque night with Behind the six band. Soooo good!
  • If you can't get in, just say you're with Sarah Herron
  • Great idea! Rock music and Rock Band. Great cocktails (I loved the ginger Basement Burro) and selection of aged Whiskeys. A fun follow-up to Tuesdays' food trucks in the adjacent lot.
  • Be sure to order a C'est La vie from Brad. Also, the chalkboard walls provide hours of fun.
  • Try the signature drinks! They are all amazing, well prepare drinks!!!
