A New Place! Right Across the Street!
Well, the V Bar is dead and gone. Rest in peace, folks. But a prime spot at 2nd & Blanchard can't remain shuttered for long. Say hello to the Splash Lounge. They've been working on it for just a short time, but evidently it's ready to roll. They were open last night. And golly, it took me back to the days before V Bar lost its liquor license. What that means is that there were a bunch of people out in front of the place smoking and talking very loudly about silly shit. So that's not a super-good thing.
I don't know whether they're going to be a real restaurant or just a spot to get people drunk. The V Bar started out the former, transformed into the latter and then became neither. Let's wish these new folks the best and hope that they manage their patrons better than the previous tenants.
