The Exchange bar has been integrated into the area to create a lively entertainment venue that's perfect whether you simply want to soak up the atmosphere over a drink or enjoy the casino.
An innovative 20 metre floor-to-ceiling video wall displays dramatic cityscapes, so guests might gaze 'out' upon Paris, New York or Sydney as they sip their favourite apéritif. Grouped seating and soft lighting create the feel of a sophisticated jazz bar and guests can listen to the mellow sounds of a jazz combo or pianist playing in the background. What could be better? A wonderful option for any evening on Ventura, Metropolis is also ideally located for a drink before or after dinner at The White Room, while by day, this venue makes a comfortable and stylish observation lounge.
As vibrant as its name suggests, the Red Bar offers cocktails in a sophisticated setting that is perfect for a pre-dinner drink or after dinner socialising. Guests can also indulge themselves in a glass of champagne and caviar whilst the sound of tinkling ivories provides a special ambience amidst the warm, inviting and vivid décor.
Situated forward on Deck 16, Breakers Bar is the place to go for a refreshing smoothie. Packed full of fruit, they make for a delicious and healthy treat. From here, guests can admire the view from on high as Ventura glides you toward your next port of call. And if in the mood for something not quite so virtuous, there is also a full deck bar menu.
The Terrace bar, located on deck 15, caters for guests using the Terrace Pool below on the Riviera deck and is a great place to socialise and soak up the sun.
Protected by the skydome the Beachcomber bar has steward service so no need to leave your sun lounger. Located on deck 15 it is ideally situated for guests using the Beachcomber Pool.
A little taste of home away from home, The Exchange is Ventura's urban warehouse bar. Found on Deck 6, just a few steps from the casino, it makes the ideal place to celebrate. Exposed iron girders and antique brick give this sociable venue real character while two model trains, which run around the top of the bar, adds a fun and quirky touch. Furnished in dark wood and bottle green, the bar is distinctly British in style. Beer on draught, entertainment such as quizzes and live bands, plus occasional televised sporting events complete the picture.

Ventura's atrium makes an impressive entrance.
Spanning three decks and over 30 feet, it is a key focal point and your first impression of her spacious interior. Four towering black archways frame various access points to Ventura's shops, bars and cafés. And as you move from deck to deck, you will notice subtle changes in the décor and furnishings, inspired by nature. Warm golden tones reflect the rise of the sun on Deck 5. Deck 6 represents the cooler tones of day and Deck 7 provides the drama of the setting sun, with a crescendo in rich scarlet and copper tones.
