One of the most happening places in San Jose is Santana Row, located at 368 Santana Row, San Jose CA 95128 and across from the Westfield Valley Fair Mall. Santana Row boasts a European Style shopping center with high end fashion boutiques, restaurants, bars and spas. Santana Row also has about 514 homes, 219 of which are privately own and the rest are rental townhomes and flats.
For the fashionistas, there are upscale fashion boutiques such as Gucci, BCBG, Burberry or Cole Hann just to name a few. One would be inspired with such fine fashion and name brands, or if happened to be there on the right day, you might be lucky enough to catch a fashion show and see the latest fashion trends.
A shopping trip isn’t complete without some time in the day spa. Check-in one of the few salons at Santana Row and drop down on a nice comfortable chair. While you are there, get a massage or a pedicure and pamper yourself and those aching feet.
Santana Row lights up at night not only with lights, but also from the bar scenes and the crowds’ happy faces. Get dressed-up and take a walk down the Row. It is like Christmas year round on the weekends at Santana Row. You will see it is also a perfect place to take your date. There are many things to do. One would surely be able to please his or her date instantaneously.
Whatever your taste of the night might be, start out with the happy hours at Straits Café, or at one of almost 40 restaurants in Santana Row. And if alcoholic beverages are not in your diet, perhaps you might want a bowl of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream.
At night Santana Row is one of the neatest places to be. You can have dinner outdoors at the El Jardin Tequilla restaurant and sip on your fancy margaritas, or have a nice and quiet diner at Maggiano’s Little Italy restaurant.
The night out at Santana Row doesn’t have to stop there, and you don’t have to drive anywhere else if you decided to fit in a little dancing, check out Thea Mediterranean Cuisine. If dancing isn’t your thing, then stop in the CinéArts 6 to catch a show.
And if you are still full of energy after shopping, eating, drinking and people watching, you might like to browse in the two story Border book store. Perhaps you might even enjoy sharing one of your favorite books or magazines with your date, or exchanging your thumbs up or thumbs down on authors. But if quiet time is what you’re after, stay a while and spend some time catching up with your favorite authors.
Santana Row offers many ways to be social and entertain your friends and/ or yourself. Best of all, you could experience a night fill with fun and excitement and never have to drive anywhere else.
