The V Bar in the Valencia is a nice little bar tucked away on the 3rd floor of the hotel overlooking the street in front of the Valencia. Some nights the bar was closed for private functions most nights it was a gathering place for happy hour with some decent specials from 4-7 Drink sizes were reasonable and if you stay later the noise gets louder and the place fills with guests and other people checking out the vibe. Decent drink prices for the area ... If you are staying here you have to at least spend a night here to check things out.

After ordering my own drinks (a couple of gin & tonics), I had opportunity to sit and observe two different bartenders at this bar. One in particular, a (self-identified) Brazillian fellow, failed to make any drinks in the span of about an hour without slopping, sloshing, spilling, and generally wasting about a quarter of the booze he poured. I can't believe that if this guys boss knew how this guy literally threw together drinks, that he'd keep his job for very long. They lose margin on this guy. Other than that, the drinks were typical hotel expensive. The atmosphere was a little crowded. Oh yeah, if you order any of the bar food, skip the bland, grainy humus. You'd be better off buying some Sabra at the local grocery store and enjoying it in your room.

Quite busy, hard to get a drink. Drunk women at the bar had to be escorted out. Not a place to get a drink and enjoy a conversation. Very limited seating

$5 drink specials - french 75/w rasberry was a plus, as were the IPAs. Good prices on some of apps, which while nothing spectacular were good. Cheese plate good, wings decent, quesedilla ok. Worthwhile, and in between avg and very good which were the only choices here.
