VLVT Velvet Lounge

416 W. 4th St. Santa Ana, CA 92701 | Santa Ana | 714-664-0663

Location Description:

VLVT Lounge is in downtown Santa Ana, and already hopping. Gay bars are still few and infuriatingly far between, so VLVT Velvet Lounge is already a beloved staple in LGBTQIOC, not just for its many themed nights, but also for its Sunday brunch. Among a sea of bottomless mimosas, a DIY Bloody Mary table and fresh-to-order omelets stand the Brunchettes, who trot out the sequins, wigs and torch songs as though they were lip-synching for their lives. Their popularity is such that VLVT schedules them for two shows—at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.—and highly recommends reservations. And every Sunday, VLVT Velvet Lounge is also home to Cherry, which touts itself as "OC's Sexiest Girls' Night." The layout of the bar definitely lends itself to that title—flashy nightclub feel with lots of space to dance, a huge patio area, an interactive text-flirting system and strong drinks that make up for the damage done to your wallet.
