The cozy space is decorated with warm, rich colors, from their dark wood tables to the contrasting cream-coloured leather chairs. The soft lighting and deep hues of the Velvet Olive give it a modern, contemporary feel. However, what’s most impressive are the incredible works of art by local artists featured on every wall. Artwork is always changing and the lounge was named the third best art gallery in the city.
Paintings aren’t the only art showcased here. Blues, jazz, and folk performances are hosted regularly as well as a weekly open mic night. It’s known by locals as one of the best places to catch live music while sipping on a cool beverage.

Also on the menu are martinis, cocktails, and naughtily suggestive shooters lovingly created and named by the Velvet Olive staff.Those who need more than a drink have a full menu to choose from. You can order up a steak and watch chefs grill it right before your eyes or snack on delicious homemade hummus and pitas.
Hard to find and tougher to leave, the Velvet Olive is a secret you can’t wait to share with others.
