The Venice Cafe on the corner of Erie and Franklin is one of the original and most iconic bars in the storied city of Kent. Since 1941, generations of residents, students and visitors have enjoyed the Venice Cafe for its authentic ambiance, great drinks, delicious food and more. Its noir-ish mahogany atmosphere and hued Italian murals have provided a unique backdrop for many a fun night out with friends and family.
