Are you referring to MV as a unique neighborhood? I would agree with you residentially (not sure if that's a word) speaking. Destination-wise MV is like a fly-over state- a place you pass through to get to somewhere else. It's identity as a destination is slowly coming about but without a bar it's not very well defined.Don't get me wrong. There's a lot of things I like about MV but if you're looking for a place to have a drink or two it's lacking.~Opinions expressed are mine.

Re: MV bars, they're popping up faster than you can say "gentrifuckation"! 

Alibi Room, Corner Door, Oldfields, Bigfoot West...

Possibly some of these are technically in Culver City/Palms, but MV on both sides of Washington Blvd gerrymander strip.

There, I fixed it for ya.

I'm mean bars near the intersection of Grandview and Venice Blvd which I consider downtown MV. None of those places are anywhere near DTMV. And if you consider the sprouting up of a watering hole gentrification then I say bring on the gentrifuckation!!!

Since Venice is no longer cool, I guess you will be moving to Mar Vista. Good luck, you must be a hell of a trend setter.

Well, since Venice now IS Marina del Rey, it only makes sense that soon MarVista will become Venice!

What defines a surf shop these days? A beach themed clothing store with some boards leaning against the back wall?

What would be so wrong with that?

...commercial indicator of displacement of surf culture by upscale boutique/culinary culture? Most surf shops in CA are close to the beach...it just makes sense.

You could consider Costco a surf shop. They sell surfboards.
