Want A Winning Happy Hour? Saddle Up at Venturo in Sunnyside

venturo-vino-18

Saddle up to the bar, folks. It’s Happy Hour at Venturo Osteria and Wine Bar in Sunnyside.

Benghazi, Hilliary and Donald are not in our thoughts. We’re here to get happy and that’s our story.

Everyone knows it,too. The bartender does his part. He passes over Venturo’s Happy Hour menu. House Cocktails for $7 between 4pm to 7pm. Selected vino for $5 and selected beer for $4. A cocktail called East of Sunnyside which contained Mayfair gin, gran classic, lime, mint and cucumber sounded great, but our day called for something stronger. If you wish there is a small selection of appetizers to go with your drinks, but this time around we’re here for something more than food.

Vodka on the rocks with lemon, please.

Two sips into the vodka and the décor at Venturo reset our mood. Dark stained wooden plank floors. Beige painted brick walls. A built-in-book case with a mirrored backdrop for bottles of Italian red wine. Framed silhouettes along the wall. A sound system that was neither too loud nor too soft. A small outside eating area and two clean bathrooms.

After our second vodka the small bar filled. Three well dressed women talking about the Picasso exhibit at The  Museum of Modern Art. Two fashionable men talking about ‘ a big birthday.’ His thirtieth.

And what about the service ?

The bartender and woman working the floor could not have been more pleasant.

Saddled? Ready?

If you must know, we’re already planning a return trip to Venturo. Good place to saddle up and get happy.
