VELOCITY FIVE SPORTS RESTAURANT & BAR FEATURES 50 HD FLAT SCREENS
FALLS CHURCH, VA â€“ The ultimate in combining upscale dining, great atmosphere and high tech sports viewing has become a reality in Falls Church with the opening of Velocity Five Sports Restaurant & Bar.
Owned and conceived by Northern Virginia entrepreneur James L. Speros, former owner of the CFLâ€™s Baltimore Stallions and Montreal Alouettes, as well as a former NFL coach with the Washington Redskins and Buffalo Bills, Velocity Five is the newest, most exciting upscale sports restaurant to hit the market this millennium. With over 8,000 square feet, this restaurant and bar boasts an interior of mahogany wood walls, comfortable roomy seating, private rooms and booths, wall-to-wall hard wood floors, wireless Internet and 50 large flat screen televisions that features High Definition satellite Direct TV, thereby allowing customers to watch virtually any televised sporting event. Our nightly entertainment includes a disc jockey after 9:30 PM, spinning your favorite tunes over our state-of-the art sound and light system.
Velocity Five Sports Restaurant & Bar will be a smoke-free facility. A private covered heated outdoor canopied area with benches for smoking patrons will be provided.
The restaurant opened on March 7th and will host its Grand Opening celebration on Tuesday, March 18th, beginning at 6:00 PM. Former Washington Redskins Charles Mann, Rick Walker and Gary Clark, among other special guests, will be on hand for the celebration.
â€œI wanted to combine my restaurant experience with my love of sports to bring something truly unique to Northern Virginia and the Metro area,â€ says Jim Speros. â€œWith the opening of Velocity Five I believe I have achieved this goal. My vision was for a special upscale place for fine dining, high tech sports viewing, great music and good times for our customers of all ages. Velocity Five is the result.â€
â€œWe have already completed negotiations to host live radio and television sports talk programming,â€ Speros added. â€œOur facility was designed with that goal in mind. We look forward to many memorable media events at Velocity Five.â€
Open daily from 11:00 AM â€“ 2:00 AM, Velocity Five is a classic American grill, specializing in juicy steaks, mouth-watering burgers and its signature gourmet chicken wings. Velocity Five also features a daily raw bar with the finest fresh seafood.
