Dining & Nightlife

San Jose is the perfect place to eat out and play late. Californians are hedonists, and San Jose locals are no different, which means demanding the best food and wine (and microbrew!). Whether it be a casual bistro or pub, groovy ethnic joint or trendy celebrity eatery, San Jose will take your taste buds to town!

San Jose is well-suited for seeking adventures after dark. The shorts, jeans and tee-shirt crowds will love the casual and funky comedy clubs and pubs downtown, while the “it” crowd loves to prowl trendy clubs, galleries and ultra-lounges on Santana Row or around SoFA (downtown’s South of First Area). Whether you’re the intellectual sort, or a party animal, we’ve got everything you need to get a nightlife!
