What You'll Get
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: for $10, you get $20 worth of martinis, dancey DJ-orchestrated music, and bar fare at Velvet Dog Martini Bar and DJ 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, bocce, 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 'n' cheese option, $8.99) round out the menu. Martinis are $7.50 and include options from tame the Cosmo or Blue Moon, to the traditional gin or vodka with olives, or the seductive French Silk (mixes Guinness Stout, 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; rekindle collegiate days with beer pong on 2 Live Tuesdays or drop in to enjoy Ladies Night (featuring DJ Sun Up Jones) every Thursday. 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.
- The Velvet Dog’s rep: swank martini bar and nightclub. But its food can be as appealing and adventurous as those signature drinks. – The Pitch
- I'm going to have to say this is a great place to be. Any drink you can think of, you can get. It's relaxing up on the 3rd floor lounge area so you can have a more intimate setting and conversation. – bsprincess, Citysearch
- The Velvet Dog is a great martini bar. They have every flavor of martini imagineable [sic]. The food is good and the location is really good. – Amy A., Insider Pages
