While Sacramento may already be buzzing during the day, the city comes to life in a whole new way once the sun goes down. From sleek cocktail bars to pulsating nightclubs, here are some of the night life spots in Sacramento that you will not want to miss out on.
Many would consider Mix to be the most sophisticated club in Sacramento, especially since they have 25 different wines available by the glass. This is a rooftop club that offers fantastic views of the city from its open patio, as well as fire pits and heated lamps for those chillier evenings. If you are looking for a bargain, try to plan your visit during happy hour, or on a Sunday when there are so many drink specials available.
Hook & Ladder Manufacturing Co.
The Hook & Ladder Manufacturing Co. pride themselves on showcasing some of Sacramento’s fresh produce, and use this to create one-of-a-kind concoctions. Their outdoor patio is the perfect place to enjoy a few cocktails, all of which feature such a unique mix of ingredients, resulting in flavors that you will have never tasted before.
While Vanguard may be one of the smallest nightclubs in the city, its intimacy and original décor helps it to stand out from its competition. The brick walls add a laid back feel to the venue, while the leather armchairs and books almost make it feel like a library. However, thanks to the resident DJ that spins a mix of hip hop and house, as well as handcrafted cocktails, this is a club that is always jumping.
The Park Ultra Lounge
For those seeking out a sophisticated nightclub at which you can really dance the night away, the Park Ultra Lounge is the place to go. While you may have to queue up for a while outside before entering, the wait is usually worth it thanks to the clubs expansive layout. In addition to its massive dance floor, the club also boasts several different bars and a fire pit, as well as plenty of table space, which is something that is lacking from many of the other nightclubs in the area.
Harlow’s is known for its live music, and showcases renowned musicians as well as up and coming locals. Whether you are into blues and jazz or classic rock and roll, there will no doubt be a musical act performing here that you will love. The club has been designed in quite a clever way, in that you can see the stage from just about everywhere, while the dance floor is large enough to not feel too claustrophobic. The outdoor patio here is also a highlight, with many considering it to be one of the finest in the city.
Sacramento boasts some incredible night life, and this is something that every visitor should experience at least once during their stay. Whether you head to Hook & Ladder for some speciality cocktails, or do some wine tasting at Mix, the nightlife that you will find in California’s capital will definitely not disappoint.
