San Jose Nightlife

A new, bustling scene comes to life as soon as the sun sets in San Jose. Find yourself entering the glamour of San Jose’s nightlife with refreshing libations at a swanky lounge or sample craft brews at one of the many breweries popping up around the city. Show off your dance moves in one of our laid-back and intimate night clubs, or slow it down with a movie at the West Wind Capitol Drive-In. Grab a friend or make new ones as you explore the nightlife in San Jose – whatever your speed is, you’ll find it here.  

Bars and Lounges

San Jose nightlife has something to offer for every wine-and-diner. Try a hint of dangerously good whiskey at the Five Points Bar, named after the romantically notorious 5 Points neighborhood in New York, or enjoy a few pints and bites along San Pedro Street. If you’re looking for a cozy dive bar or a ritzy lounge, odds are you’re no more than a few blocks away. Even better, getting around San Jose is easy, so you don’t have to worry about driving. Too many options to choose from? Let San Jose Brew Bike plan an adventure for you.  

Music and Entertainment

With performances happening across the city every night of the week, it’s easy to find something for everyone to jam to, laugh at, or sing along with.
