- The Scene
Rippled rock walls, silvery curtains made of beads and couches covered in silk pillows are just a small sample of this bar's jarring beauty. Everywhere you look, there are handsome people who fit right in with the decor. Located on the second floor of the dark, mysterious Hotel Valencia, the space is divided into several large rooms, allowing multiple opportunities for dramatic entrances. Well-dressed singles mingle at the main bar, while couples enjoy the large balcony overlooking the riverwalk.
The air is charged with the scent of successful men and women on the hunt. Or maybe it's just the smell of clean air: V is a non-smoking bar. The sprawling layout encourages roaming about and meeting new people. Guys can go casual but definitely not sloppy. Although it's a fashion-conscious crowd, it's not an uptight clique.
