A small, hole in the wall place in downtown Bend. We were here in a Saturday night and it was hopping. There’s not much seating so be prepared for standing room, because it’s a tiny place. They do have a DJ that played good tunes....Our group liked the drinks they ordered, noting that they seemed to have generous pours.More

Walked into this place wondering what could be in store. We went upstairs and ordered wine. We also ordered a few various appetizers. The sausage skewers were excellent with a bit of spice in the sauce. The bartender and our waitress were wonderfully cordial. Ended...up being a nice place to spend an hour with friends.More

We stopped in for a couple of drinks - the mules were excellent. The staff was friendly and quick to take orders. We were there on the first Friday of the month which is where lots of shops/pubs have a local artist show their work...which was pretty cool too!More

This is the best kept secret in Bend. We love this place! Everyone we take there loves it too. All cocktails are made with fresh squeezed juice, the bartender is wonderful and the atmosphere is hipster.

Being slightly tipsy before arriving here is ideal. Otherwise, you'll immediately notice the narrow confines of the place which seem to get gradually smaller as the night goes on. if you're not into the close proximity thing, then I would definitely avoid this spot. If...you are however, it makes for a swell time. The setting prompts people to talk to each other because there's nothing worse than silently sitting close to people you don't know. In the middle of the place was a large screen displaying mesmerizing planet earth sequence footage. There's was always something interesting to tap into, whether it was that or other people. I think the experience of the place is ultimately up to you and your perception of it. It can be cramped, or it can be cozy. They also offer this deal where you can get a tiny barrel filled with alcohol and carry it around with you. Great for ambitious groups.More

Casual , fun , small but still accessible cocktail lounge. Strong drinks, excellent prices, big shots, and yummy mojitos! Everything comes in mason jars from beer to shots so it’s a fun vibe. Great for a drink before or after dinner.

Great place to meet friends or have a date. Delicious martinis served with a smile, which doesn't seem to be lacking in most of the drinking establishments in Bend. Fun decor, great vibes. Looking forward to the next time I slip in for a cocktail!

After checking in at our hotel, we made our way downtown and discovered the 3-day Flashback Cruz was in progress and the evening's activity involved 250 classic vehicles cruisin' down Wall Street. On entering we were surprised to find the lounge empty, but shortly after...settling in we realized many people were purchasing beverages and bringing them outside to enjoy while watching the Flashback Cruz. We decided to sit on the second level where I ordered a Moscow Mule and my wife a Blue Velvet, both were good but we decided to change drinks in mid happy hour and ordered glasses of a Ravenswood cab/merlot blend on the second round. Our servers were very cordial and we found the interior provided a fun atmosphere.More

Velvet has long been a staple stopover for a drink while we're out and about with friends in downtown Bend. Small and quaint it has a nice local feel with nice casual seating both upstairs and downstairs. Really appreciate the effort to accommodate customers with...both a bar upstairs and downstairs.More
