Located at the intersecting corner of Highway 30A and 395—the “heart” of Seagrove Beach—the “V” Restaurant is the first phase of the Hotel Viridian project, which is planned to be a mixed-use resort with 20 boutique hotel suites, 10 three-bedroom luxury suites, and two five-bedroom Gulf-front residences, a state-of the-art spa and wellness center, retail spaces, and parking.

“V” features both indoor and outdoor dining, recessed for natural shading and naturally cooled from a reflecting pool with fountains. The transparency of the building opens up to the street and to the Gulf of Mexico beyond. The circular bar and artisanal driftwood chandelier can be seen from the road,  creating magnificent patterns of shadows and light at night.

Because the hotel and a rooftop infinity pool will eventually be built above the restaurant, the structure needed to be able to accommodate these future plans, as well as being able to withstand the harsh coastal elements of wind, sun, and sand..
