Essay question: Why should I drink here?  
A night at NV is like drinking at a pop-up gallery – the art on the walls is always changing, the booze is a nice selection of whatever they have available and it’s just so damn chill. The downstairs bar area is a dimly lit main gallery of sorts and features a new local artist every month. Upstairs has more of a lounge feel; there are retro arcade games like Ms. Pacman and Street Fighter and there’s even a cool little library – you know, for late-night studying … or waiting to get your shoes repaired (wink).
