About Lunch & Learn
The Venice Chamber of Commerce Lunch & Learn event is a quarterly series where business professionals, while enjoying a delicious lunch, will obtain information and tips for refining skills and acquiring new knowledge.

Event speakers provide a topic proposal along with a summary on what guests can expect to learn. Our goal is to deliver content that is relevant, engaging, and contributes to enhancing participants professional and personal experience. 

As another benefit to membership, the Venice Chamber continually seeks to provide programs and activities that help our members connect, promote and support business interests in Venice.

About Hotel Erwin
We don't want to date ourselves, but Hotel Erwin has remained a Venice Beach staple since 1975. The man behind our hotel is a local legend — though he’ll never admit it — and his vision to welcome all travelers and treat them like family still influences our hospitality today.

Here at Hotel Erwin, we give our guests an unmistakably Venice Beach experience. Our vibrant rooms and event spaces capture a unique aesthetic that sets the scene for any occasion. Not only do we put guests right next to the beach, but we’re also steps away from the area’s famed shopping, dining and activities. When you finally return back to the hotel, there’s always a seat at our rooftop bar High Lounge or low-key dining spot Barlo Kitchen + Cocktails.
