best place to hang out in Fresno – During dinner and early evening they serve great food with a quite atmosphere ... by night it becomes a great spot to hang out with friends, they have reggae night on Thursdays, dj's on Friday, and sometimes live music on Sunday (check ahead). The drinks a reasonably priced, 4 or 5 bucks for a beer. They also have a huge patio area out back with a second bar, for those that can't go without a smoke while drinking..
Great food, great vibe – This is my favorite expensive restaurant in Fresno. It is located in the Tower District, named after the Tower Theatre, built in 1939. There are numerous, bars, restaurants, and clubs, all within walking distance. It is on Fulton, south of Olive. The interior is small, so reservations are a must. The walls are red brick, usually with art pieces displayed. The front doors look like they are from a 1930's cartoon, there is a hardwood floor, and lights with handmade purple glass shades, hang over the bar. My favorite appetizer is the baked garlic, with goat cheese, in olive oil. The salads are always fresh and exotic. They serve a New York Steak, and a Ribeye Steak, that are both killer. On Friday and Saturday, I always order one of the Specials. The last one I had was, Pan Rosted Beef Tenderloin with Cambozola Garlic Mashed Potoes, Cremini Mushrooms and Ground Mustard Cream Sauce. It was delicious. They have a small, but impressive wine list. There is a, very cool, comfortable, patio, in back, where you can drink, or dine. After the dinner hour, there is often live music, or a DJ. You will see patrons in coats and ties , and evening dresses, and patrons in T-shirts and jeans. The place has a very cool vibe. Ask for Susan to be your server. She is a total professional, and has an incredible sense of humor. Full bar.
Tower Must See – Love this place, always have and always will. Sweet beats and beautiful peeps line the walls of this place. Whether you are in shorts a tee and flip flops or your best dressed you'll always feel good about your choice to check out Veni's! Get the stockholm royale, you won't be steered wrong!
Great little tower spot! – Very good food and a great ambiance to eat in! Reminds me of an SF type of place - glad we have a few in Fresno. Bar is fun, patio is awesome. Good place to be.
This ethnically diverse bar appreciates the stylish, and its dim lighting against gunmetal gray metallics and brick walls make candlelit tables and its colorful clientele the biggest sources of light – The Scene:
The modish stop by this place to have a few drinks, meet friends and listen to piped-in Sinatra. Gay/Lesbian friendly and akin to a wine cellar, the place also features world beat and Latin music with no cover charge on the weekends, when patrons can slam some microbrews and expensive liquor while wearing velvet and silk. Expect a lot of chatter from the mostly over 30 crowd between sets, including how horror-show Chris looked Friday night and how Tina's dot.com stock skyrocketed last week.
Must Have Drinks:
Columbia Crest Chardonnay Columbia Valley.
Tower District Gem! – Located in the historic Tower District, the decor inside is marvelously cool. The patio dining area is the place to eat in the Spring. The menu is fabulous and the wine list is extensive. The place to go if you're trying to impress!
