Liquid Restaurant and Lounge – All White Everything

Liquid Restaurant And LoungeThe Liquid Restaurant and Lounge is located in the middle of downtown San Jose at 32 South Third Street. When make your way toward the Liquid Restaurant and Lounge you’re not exactly sure what to expect, but once you enter through the doors and glance around you can really appreciate the decor and vibe of this clean, sleek and elegant “all white” lounge. That’s right, all the furniture from the sofas to the bar stools are all white. A risky set up that is not of the “norm” for a restaurant and/or lounge. The walls serve as a canvas for the visual and creative light show provided by multiple projectors mounted on the black ceiling to conceal their presents. These well hidden projectors throw an amazing visual effect of “liquid” cascading throughout the lounge, which give you the feeling of being surrounded by water. While sitting at the bar you’ll notice the selves fully stocked with a variety of quality and high end alcohol. The alcohol shelves are spotlighted by actual waterfalls back lit by a soft blue light for yet another visual pleasure. While seated at the bar, you’re immediately greeted by friendly and knowledgeable bartenders tending to your every need from the bar selection to the food menu.

Liquid Restaurant And LoungeWhile taking in all the visual effects of Liquid Restaurant and Lounge I ordered a few items from the food menu. I kept my order fairly simple by ordering the Hong Kong Style Chicken Wings, tossed with garlic, peppered salt and hot chili…A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I also indulged myself with the Fries sprinkled with sea salt and handmade egg rolls with chicken, cabbage, mushrooms and chili sauce. Multiple-simple appetizers, but extremely pleasing to the taste buds. I definitely sent my compliments to the chef.

Around 10pm the staff began to remove some of the tables and chairs and the live DJ’s, Brotha Resse and DJ Zoo, began to spin Top 40 hits and classic jams. Liquid has a excellent sound system which is perfect for the R&B and Hip Hop jams that the rotation of DJ’s play. Brotha Resse holds down Fridays with a host of San Jose’s top DJ’s including Dj Zoo and  Looney Tunes. On Saturday nights you can catch Venom347, DJ Remedy and Rated R rockin.

After speaking with the owner Joseph Melendez Jr. and expressing my appreciation, he informed me that he is still in the process of doing more renovations to the lounge by adding full size aquariums to add to the “water” and “liquid” theme of the lounge. I believe these additions to the lounge are only going to add to the visual appearance of an already upscale venue.

Liquid Restaurant And LoungeI look forward to returning to the swanky Liquid Restaurant and Lounge to further sample and enjoy the add-ons and upgrades. Not to mention, parking is easily available and its in walking distance of San Jose State University, City Hall, other clubs and restaurants located in downtown San Jose. Whether your looking for a happy hour spot or wanting to dance the night away, Liquid is definitely a welcome addition to Downtown San Jose, Ca.
