In a neighborhood where warehouses and car repair shops dominate, new venue, Viva, has emerged
to bring the parties of Carnival to you. Pulling up, there is a valet ready to park your car and a door man ready to open the velvet rope for you and your entourage.
When you walk in, the space is-in a word my fellow New Yorkers- ENORMOUS! Several VIP booths have bee
The decor of the space is also very attractive with a loft style vibe to it, given the large open spaces, yet there are soft orange and yellow flood lights, opening up the dark walls and corners. Even flowers in the wall, (and no, these are not ones for you to take down and give to that pretty lady over there fellas). The party here is most definitely better than one that recently took place at the Hammerstein Ballroom.
The bar isn't as impressive as the venue-rather small- but a $12 drink made up for all of that. Due to the immense size of the venue, it only seems logical to go with bottle service. Also considering the small size of the bar; loads of people (over 200) + small bar = wet towel. Which is also very easy on the wallet, at an average price of about $150.
