Before the internet social networks, bars are considered one of the oldest venues for social functions. It has been like that for many years even before I was born. It’s not just the drinking that keeps the bar patrons from going, it’s the people. Even when social networks are a trend in the internet, it doesn’t beat old fashion bar hospitality. There was an old American sitcom named Cheers. If I recall its opening song correctly, it says that “I want to go to a place where everyone knows your name.”
I believe that Velocity Bar is the best place for a modern socialite to be. Velocity bar can accommodate about 200 people. One of Velocity’s modern features that you will see is that it’s also a sports bar. You can watch your favorite game or match live. If you are from the
British Isles, you won’t miss a play from your favorite rugby or cricket team. For fun, there’s also an area where you can simulate playing baseball virtually. For your viewing pleasure, there’s also a cozy viewing room for a cinematic atmosphere with its large LCD screens and top of the line audio system.
Velocity also has a variety of cocktail dishes. I recommend their chicken wings for its spicy flavor. Velocity Bar offers 50% percent off on selected beverages from Tuesdays to Sundays 6pm - 8pm(Happy Hour)
