Beautiful bar and the outdoor fire pit area is gorgeous. However it is not worth calling a bar or going to because it closes at 11:30.

V Bar is the bar at Hotel Valencia. It's kind of expensive, but the view from the bar down towards the street is awesome. Great for a networking event as well.

A - OK. It's not a bad place to stop by if you're in Santana Row. Definitely not a place that I would stay all night. It can get pretty crowded, drinks are pretty skimpy, and the bartenders are not always at their best. FYI -drinks at Blowfish are the same price but they give you double the amount. Sometimes the bouncers in the front could be such jerks as well! They don't really require a dress code here, but sometimes they won't let you in because you're wearing white shoes.

The V bar in Santana Row reminds me of some higher end bars on the top of skyscrapers in Tokyo with its decor and design sensibility. It is located upstairs in the Hotel Valencia, accessed by an elevator on the ground floor in the Santana Row shopping center.

It is a lounge, with comfy over-stuffed couches to slink into, and those ottoman styled seats to gather around coffee tables. It has a narrow outside patio veranda, where you can fit two chairs per window door. When it gets crowded inside, or when it is nice weather, there is also a large patio in the courtyard of the HOtel Valencia, that serves as an overflow area for the bar.

On weekends it gets very crowded here, with an ethnically mixed crowd of mostly 30 somethings trying to upscale their game, but still not arriving yet, only striving. Cocktails are not cheap, so plan accordingly.

As long as I don't get thrown out on my bday , I love this place! Part of the Hotel Valencia, the bar area is known as V Bar. The outdoor area in the patio its great place for drinks but they had to close it and move people inside after 10 pm.

Where else can you go at Santana Row without being too much out of place while sober?
Well, its a trick question.. just go here and get rediculously drunk and you'll blend in with all the other posers and douche bags... I take that back.. you can go there and be the only genuine person there too. I try to drink myself into oblivion and simply not care about anyone else there other than the people I'm with since more than likely the other people will odds are look down on you or treat you less than...

I'm sorry, been watching too much gossip girl... ok, it's not that bad of a place and the entire dark ambiance is nice especially with the balcony. The only thing that can be good or bad is the patrons.. oh, and the line to get in. If you go too late, like any where else on the Row you may expect a line to get in anywhere to party. I've never had a real problem with the patrons but things can get a little pushy as with anywhere that has bar that is packed 3-5 people deep. Ironically, I've had great experience with the staff and managers there who have done their best job at creating a fun enjoyable experience for me and mine. The entire place does scream Vegas... but remind yourself that you are still in SJ.
