In the heart of Santa Monica lies The Victorian, a beautiful venue that promises an unforgettable experience. Recently, I had the pleasure of exploring this unique space and its perfect atmosphere for dancing, dining, and enjoying a variety of drinks.
Upon arrival, the convenience of private parking immediately set a positive tone for the evening. As I ventured further into the venue, I couldn't help but notice the mix of indoor and outdoor spaces, offering attendees the choice to enjoy the pleasant evening breeze or revel in the cozy indoors.
The occasion was marked by the launch of their new seasonal food and cocktail menu. We were welcomed into the VIP room which was a special little room, often rented out for small events.
It was here that we tried a variety of cocktails and bites. We also met a friendly bartender who was testing out really cool cocktails for the holidays!
Thursday nights at The Victorian are dedicated to salsa lessons, allowing guests to learn the art of Bachata and Salsa from talented instructors. Lucky us - It was a fantastic opportunity to embrace the rhythm and enjoy the vibrant music that echoed through the venue!
The charm of The Victorian however, extends beyond Thursday nights. Each day of the week offers something special for its guests. Wine enthusiasts can indulge on Wednesdays with an extensive wine list offering a variety of flavors to explore. Fridays come alive with music as lively DJ sets echo through all three floors. Saturdays are perfect for leisurely brunches outdoors, followed by a night of dancing to diverse tunes in every corner of the property.
For me, The Victorian is more than just a venue; it's an experience. Whether you are a tourist or local, dance enthusiast, a food connoisseur, or someone simply seeking a good time, The Victorian effortlessly delivers a vibrant and diverse ambiance.
Pro Tip 1:
Incidents of pickpocketing are often common in crowded places, especially where people are engrossed in fun and not paying attention to their belongings. Make sure to keep your purse / wallet close at all times, a precautionary measure that everyone should consider when attending dance events in bustling venues!
Pro Tip 2:
Parking costs $15. Look for street parking first before pulling into the property.
