'The V' nightClub will hire 75, replaces Venue

The Venue nightclub and restaurant has new owners, has a new name and is hiring 75 people. Applications will be accepted from 1 to 4 p.m. and from 7 to 9 p.m. today at what is now called "the V" at 2675 Ulmerton Road. Jobs include servers, bartenders, managers and full- and part-time administrative positions. The 28,000-square-foot club is undergoing light renovations, said Daniel Disbro, a managing partner. It is slated to open May 4 with revamped menus. The Venue closed after its menu offerings and number of customers declined. It opened in 2008 promising an establishment unlike anything in the area with sushi and martini bars, champagne lounges, VIP tables and concierge services. Entertainers who have performed there include Flo Rida and Jersey Shore cast member DJ Pauly D. The V will mirror much of what the Venue was. It will include an international tapas restaurant and sushi restaurant along with the Main Stage Martini Bar, the Speak Easy Sports Lounge, a patio bar, a dance area, live performances and banquet facilities.
