Our Story

Welcome to V Restaurant, Nightclub, and Entertainment Venue. The V concept is the brainchild of John Mocadlo. His vision was to build a venue that could provide New Haven and Connecticut with the ultimate Restaurant, Nightclub, and Event experience. Together he partnered with investors Greg Maloney, Chris Michols, Michael Ferraro, and Director of Operations/General Manager Frank Scotto to build a team with vast experience in the Restaurant/bar, Nightclub, and entertainment experience. Next, they picked the location. A location massive enough, elegant enough, and functional enough to provide a home for their concept. That home is 144 Temple St, in the heart of New Haven’s Nightlife area and the name is only fitting, “V”.

Our Mission is to offer New Haven with the best dining experience, nightclub experience, and event location that New Haven has to offer. To do this we have hired executive Andrew Fine to create an innovative menu that will be the talk of downtown.

We have developed a beverage program that will capitalize on the experience of our owners and management with the goal of providing an exceptional lounge experience. We have built the ultimate nightclub experience with over $250,000 invested in the lighting and sound, complete with a 5’x16’ foot digital display to provide our customers with the best nightclub experience Connecticut has to offer. Also we have designed an event location to provide patrons and businesses with a venue that is all encompassing in their needs, Be it a private meeting for 10 or a baby shower for 200, we will provide the best in service, food, drink, sight and sound and spare no expense to make your experience second to none.

Our mission is to use innovation, experience, and execution to provide our patrons with the best New Haven has to offer through hard work, training, and customer service. Less than excellent, is unacceptable. Welcome to the V Family.
