Create your own take on dinner and a show. Get dressed up to stay in. If you’re missing San Jose nightlife, here's how you still have a night out, in your own home!
Start off the night with your favorite San Jose meal. Get food to-go or delivered from over 600 open San Jose restaurants across all neighborhoods and support your local chefs and eateries. In partnership with Dining at a Distance, this list is crowdsourced and constantly updated so check back daily.
You've got your food, but don't forget the drinks. The City of San Jose has allowed bars and restaurants to offer curbside beer and cocktails. Take advantage and complete your concert experience with the perfect adult beverage.
You can now get your favorite craft cocktails to-go from SoFA’s Haberdasher Thursday through Sunday with their curbside pickup. Grab a premixed drink, a flight of whiskey, snacks and beer, and bottles to make sure you're supplied.
Are pop-ups more your style? Check out Tri-Force To-Go, a new collaborative endeavor from the folks who bring you MINIBOSS (and SuperGood Kitchen), Paper Plane and Original Gravity Public House. Order craft cocktails to-go so you can enjoy your favorite drinks at home while supporting all three San Jose bar establishments.
Prefer hops over spirits? Preorder your favorite Camino Brewing Company releases for pickup in Downtown or delivery to your home 7 days a week. Hapa's Brewing Company in Willow Glen has drive-thu and delivery on packs of beers on selected days.
Pro Tip: Swing by Chromatic Coffee Company a few doors down from Hapa's for some fresh roasted coffee beans for your next cup of joe in the morning.
You've got the food and drinks. Now turn on that bass and stream virtual concerts and performances from a number of your favorite musical sources:
San Jose Jazz Live from Home streams every Monday and Thursday, bringing Jazz musicians online for virtual concerts and Q&As. You even get a chance to virtually "tip" your favorite San Jose musicians.
El Jardin Live Concert Series comes straight from Santana Row to your screen to keep your spirits up with Latin vibes and influences.
Pro Tip: Order food ahead from their sister restaurant, the brand-new Zazil Cocina Mexicana, to complete the live-musical experience.
Live and Local SJ is your go-to source for upcoming shows and impromptu gigs from local San Jose musicians as they perform from their living rooms. Part of the San Jose Downtown Association, check back on their social media accounts for new virtual shows from local artists.
