"The Venice Bistro was originally opened in 1958 as the Venice West Café. It’s clientele was a mix of beat poets and jazz artists who gathered here to write and recite their works and perform their jazz. Local artists who spent time at the café included Allen Ginsberg, Jim Morrison, lead singer of the Doors and keyboardist Ray Manzarek. It was also a well known meeting place for the Los Angeles Free Press and Morrison was a staunch advocate of the paper. Morrison lead a Bohemian lifestyle performing regularly from the then Venice West Café."
