San Jose Insiders Guide

The city of San Jose is central to the Bay Area and many refer to the area as "Silicon Valley" - in fact back in the late 70's the city planners anticipated the growth of the valley to move south and in anticipation of this named a road "Silicon Valley Blvd".  As time has passed the valley has grown North toward San Francisco and the growth moving south is only now occurring fifty years later.

If you are looking for recommendations, we have hand-picked some of our favorite spots around San Jose.

The Food Scene

Naglee Park Garage 

17 minute walk from the Conference Center

Casual dining that is a local favorite - you walk in and order at the counter then have a seat in the restored oil change drive thru from the early 1900s.  The food was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives and was a Guy Fiere favorite.  

 

Freshly Baked Eatery

18 minute walk from the Conference Center

A lunch only location that offers house made bread that is fresh from the oven - some of the best sourdough bread in the Bay Area - the location is a cash only so be sure to stop by the ATM on your way there.

 

La Victoria Taqueria 

7 minute walk from the Conference Center

A visitor must do! Go for the orange sauce and order a taco or burrito.  Bay Area residents make pilgrimages to this restaurant for the orange sauce - it is that good. When the Super Bowl was played in Levis stadium between the Broncos and the Panthers, Cam Newton visited this restaurant everyday for the orange sauce.


The Night Scene

 

Haberdasher 

2 minute walk from the Conference Center

This swanky below ground bar is one of the first speak easy style cocktails bars that have become so popular - the coasters are made from cloth and the drinks contain seasonal local herbs and spices.  Get the Pisco Sour for a night cap.

 

O'Flaherty's Irish Pub 

12 minute walk from the Conference Center

Opened by Ray O'Flaherty in 2002 with the same casual Irish pub feel it has today, also hosting a great patio that sits along San Pedro Square.  The bar features a large selection of draft beers and is a great place to catch a sports game.

 

San Pedro Square Market 

13 minute walk from the Conference Center

This is a large outdoor/Indoor market that has a large food selection from a number of vendors, along with a wine bar and cocktail bar.  You can even get your haircut by a local barber if needed.  The facility is located on an historic site where the Spanish Peralta Adobe resides and gives tourist a glimpse into the history of San Jose which was the first Civil pueblo in California.

 

Loft Bar & Bistro 

10 minute walk from the Conference Center

A favorite for rooftop bar enthusiast - this bar features a great menu of wines and cocktails as well as some late night food.  Located in the center of the college scene with San Jose Bar & Grill and Tres Gringos Cabo Cantina across the street.
