Hello fans of Velocity Five Sports Restaurant and Bar! We will be opening our second location in Sterling, VA late August. From the response we have gotten so far, we believe this will be a win-win for everyone, especially those residents who live in Sterling and Great Falls.
One of the questions that we have been getting is if it will be a smoking establishment. Velocity Five Sports Restaurant and Bar will be a NON-smoking venue. Patrons can smoke outside on our new 2,000 sq. ft. patio area which will feature a large bar, an awning, plenty of seating and flat screen high-definition TV’s.
Velocity Five will also be family friendly, with an extensive kids menu. We will stay with our winning formula and showcase our signature upscale interior featuring hardwood floors, cherry wood walls, over 25 flat screen high-definition TV’s and great American cuisine.
Keep checking this page to keep you updated on our progress as we get closer to the opening.
Elevate Your Game at Velocity Five!
Update #1 7/29/08
Yesterday we met about the tentative dates for the Grand opening. So far we are on track to open mid to late, earliest would be August 15. We have done extensive renovations to the interior. Patrons of the previous establishment will be surprised when they walk in, as it will look completely different. I don’t want to give it away, but it will be a complete 180. We are also in negotiations to possibly doing either a pre-game or after game broadcast from the Sterling location. Since Redskins park is so close, it would be the perfect location for any type of broadcast. Thoughts and comments are always welcome. You can comment directly on this blog or email your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org .

We would like to thank everyone for responding about the non-smoking issue. We clearly do not want to alienate any smokers but we also want to keep Velocity Five non-smoking. In Falls Church, we have plenty of smokers who will leave their seats at the bar, grab a smoke on the patio and come back to their seat. If you see our patio area during any event, it is packed with patrons who smoke and also enjoy their drinks outside. In Potomac Falls, the patio area will be nearly 5 times as big as our Falls Church location and will include a covered awning and four flat screen HDTVs. Although we know we cannot please everyone, we are doing our best to do so. All we ask is that once we are open for business, stop by, check us out, try the food and then decide if Velocity Five is right for you. You might just end up loving Velocity Five if you keep your mind open. Thank you to everyone that continues to support Velocity Five!
Here is the new Velocity Five sign we just added.
