The Lincoln

A Venice Bar Built Like a 1940s Service Station

A Model T, a Patio, Atomized Fernet and Jeffrey Best

So many auto shops on Lincoln.

So few of them offering the right proportions of gin-to-atomized-fernet on their patios.

Get your motor running for the Lincoln, a new bar with a tasteful 1940s garage feel from the Jeffrey Best–driven brigade behind Warwick and Power House. It opens tonight in Venice, and this is its slideshow.

The Red Garter will be a distant memory once you enter Matt Winter’s workshop mixing materials from old Porsche and Mercedes source books, ship lamps, stools made from car jacks and glass from a Sherman tank factory. And a rare 1927 Model T roadster. There’s one of those in there, too.

Hang out after work over classic rock and a beer/shot combo they call the High Dive. Or stretch out a post-Scopa date with a round of Menthylamines (gin, mint, egg, lime and atomized fernet) from a Nice Guy vet while grazing knees under a wall of pounded-tin battery jackets.

We also see you chasing Sunday brunch out on the marvelous brick patio up front. You’ll be with a few friends who don’t really go east of Lincoln, rosé and scotches in hand, while discussing all the big changes afoot in Venice.

Like anybody drinking rosé on Lincoln.
