Looking to plan your next weekend date night? Or an evening with friends after work? Take another look at Victory Park's newest additions and its lively South Victory district for nightlife options galore.
Let's start with dinner. For traditional options, try the new Dibs on Victory, a spirited restaurant and bar featuring a large second-level covered patio just across from the W Hotel. Enjoy American fare with great views of Victory Plaza. Or, there's Hero for a more casual option. It's a vibrant sports bar with an extensive drink selection and pub grub you'll come back for again and again. Think Philly cheesesteak sandwiches, gourmet burgers, and loaded tater tots.
If you're in the mood for something more adventurous, Jinya Ramen is a tasty choice and makes for an ideal date night. Offering so much more than ramen, the menu includes small plates, rice bowls, curries, and even mini tacos. Medina Oven + Bar specializes in Moroccan-Mediterranean cuisine, with a dinner menu featuring a selection of grilled skewers, phyllos, and oven-fired pizzas.
Now it's time for dessert — or after-dinner drinks, if you prefer. Sweets lovers, head to Sift + Pour for coffee, tea, or a treat. From Rice Krispies squares to macarons to delectable mini cupcakes, you can't go wrong here. Prefer a wine bar? Coming in May, Burgundy Swine will open, bringing a large selection of whites and reds in an approachable, relaxed setting.
If the night is still young, catch a flick at Cinepolis Luxury Cinemas. It's the new, ultra-modern movie theater that offers push-button waiter service, fully reclining leather seats, cocktails, and so much more. The theaters seat 700 guests and have all the latest technology for optimum viewing, such as high-def projection and enhanced audio. There is also a full gourmet menu, just in case you want to have dinner while you watch the film.
For something out of the ordinary, you can look forward to the Sweet Tooth Hotel, opening May 25 with its third installation of "Discotech," a multi-sensory experience that invites you to throw on a pair of silent disco headphones and explore the expanded space, complete with a bar. Or stop by now-open Biagio Wine & Spirits and grab your favorite nightcap before you head home. The new concept is a neighborhood wine and spirits store offering a wide selection, including cognac, whiskey, tequila, wine, and beer.
