Velocity: Dhaka's newest sports-themed restaurant
With the progress of time, we have noticed an increase in growth of restaurants aiming to interact with their customers, rather than simply serving exotic dishes. Such is the concept of Velocity, a newly opened lounge in the heart of Dhaka city, targeting to transform the mundane activity of eating to something fun and to look forward to.
Velocity brings together the sports loving youth of the city on a single platform to enjoy their favourite sports together with friends and family, and recreate a stadium like atmosphere. Be it football, be it cricket, be it wrestling, be it 4PM in the afternoon or 4AM in the morning, the doors of Velocity are always open to welcome you.
As you enter the gates of the lounge, you will be greeted with the smiling faces of renowned sportsmen such as Brian Lara, Shawn Michaels, David Beckham, Tiger Woods and many more, sketched on a square shaped block of wood along with their quotes.
The interior is designed such that it resonates with the sporting animal in you, making every inch of you scream with ecstasy as Man U lifts the Carling Cup or as Goldberg pins Brock Lesnar in less than a couple of minutes.
What is unique about the lounge is that they provide you with a foosball table, dart board, punching bag and even a PS4 to play your favourite games. And to add the cherry on top, you would be surprised to know that they come complementary with the food.
This is simply the start of the long list of benefits you will enjoy. Moreover, they host FIFA and WWE tournaments on the PlayStation 4 and give away jaw-dropping prizes. Just to lure you into taking part in the tournament, the last time someone won, they bagged a PS4!
Serving Italian and Mexican cuisine at a price range of Tk 170-740, you can now casually walk around enjoying that meaty pizza as the cheese oozes out with every bite you take, playing dart with your friend after a long hectic class.
However, we always want a tad bit more of benefit in every service we buy and the owners of Velocity have kept exactly that in mind.
Running low on cash? Enjoy a filling meal as they will create a set menu specific to your budget. This is heaven for every human being on the planet!
People have appreciated and recognised their efforts of creating a sports cafe. A lot of praises have come for their appealing decor and inclusion of the Foosball table, which can be spotted once in a blue moon in the country. Elaboration on the meal would be very much appreciated since they have been named uniquely with reference to sporting celebrities and could get confusing for us to decipher what they actually serve.
Bottom-line, witness the most electrifying atmosphere at Velocity as you go berserk watching Wrestlemania 33 or as The Champions League comes to a nail biting finish this June.
Don't miss out on the action.
Tick Velocity in as your next go-to place.
