Where better to celebrate Valentine's Day than in a brand new bar?

Jeremy Downey recently expanded Bistro V with a new bar. The bar space doubled the size of this chef driven restaurant with both bar seating and table seating. This stylish bar space has bamboo flooring and ceiling, comfy love seats, leather chairs, soft Edison lighting and tables of rough hewn wood.

Pull up one of the plush, upholstered, cadet blue bar stools and enjoy a cool cocktail. Tonight we did just that and enjoy Christmas Margarita and Le Savoyard. The Margarita is red in color and a scrumptious mix of Patron, Grand Marnier, Cranberry Juice and Fresh Citrus Juices. Christmas may be over. But this popular cocktail is still available. And the luscious Le Savoyard is a sparkling cocktail, with effervescence that is perfect for celebrating new beginnings. Cheers to The Bar at Bistro V!
