The preferred textile for monarchs, Santa Claus, ice dancers, and the inside of wigs, velvet has panther-like properties that suggest sensuous revelry. Celebrate the fabric of fine lives with today's Groupon: $20 for $40 worth of martinis, dancey DJ-orchestrated music, and bar fare at Velvet Dog Martini Bar and Lounge. The retro, upscale dive bar is a nationally famous hot spot that affords thrill seekers and fun makers an enchanting night out.
Velvet Dog is the flagship bar and restaurant of the Martini Corner Entertainment District. Taking the best elements of other drinkeries, Velvet Dog has a dive bar's nonchalant bar (pool, boccie, skee-ball), a lounge's high-quality sips and sounds (martinis, DJs), and a sports bar's favored grub (sandwiches, appetizers). Menu specialties include hot wings drenched in Buffalo sauce ($8.99), deep-fried pierogies ($6.99), and chicken-stuffed quesadillas ($7.99). Salads and half-pound burgers (including a creative chili mac 'n' cheese option, $8.99) round out the menu. Martinis are $7.50 and include options from tame (Cosmo, Blue Moon) to traditional (gin or vodka with olives) to seductive (French Silk mixes Guinness, Irish cream, amaretto, and Godiva chocolate liqueur).
The tri-level party space includes a DJ lounge and full bar. Sway to live spun music every night in a cover-free club. Weekly specials and sounds change daily; enjoy indie rock on Mondays (courtesy of DJ Adam) or rekindle collegiate days with beer pong on 2 Live Tuesdays. Get this Groupon to satisfy large groups of friends debating between the club, the corner bar, and a martini hat equipped with turntables.
This Groupon may not be used toward tickets for special events.
