|The owners of Beachwood and The Brig shed light on Alibi Room - Culver City's chic neighborhood bar where everything is out on the table.
Tucked between residential streets and an auto shop, the glowing letters of Alibi draw the locals and an apres-work crowd in with tasty treats and rare brews. Guys in baseball caps and flip-flops with casually-clad gals drink wine and Belgian ale at the exquisite wood-top bar. Guests stay to themselves here, so B.Y.O. Buddies. The bright interior may scream sports bar, but the vibe is anything but – still, there's no shame in rocking a UCLA jacket in these casual quarters. No more than a modest single room, Alibi stays intimate no matter how big the crowd gets. We watched as the sliding doors to the smoking patio and bathroom confused tipsy patrons – remember, don’t push or pull, just slide. There's no jukebox in sight, but the indie rock gems that echo throughout the night sound as if they were hand-picked by the crowd. Hidden from all the Hollywood hoopla and far enough away from the Westside college crowds, Alibi Room is your clean getaway to a night of hassle-free fun. – Kara Marks
