District Open in San Jose

Carolyn Jung | December 6, 2017 | Food & Drink Story Eat and Drink

Arrive parched at District and your thirst will be easily quenched.

The only hard part will be in choosing your drink of choice from more than 40 wines by the glass and in flights at this stylish new watering hole in San Jose’s San Pedro Square. That’s in addition to more than 300 reserve wines by the bottle. Or opt for something more potent with 60 craft whiskeys available, served neat, straight up or in signature cocktails. Beer aficionados can choose from a dozen on draft.

Executive chef Bob Cina’s shareable plates ($9 to $19) include Moroccan-spiced meatballs, housemade bourbon wild boar salami, and beef short rib pizza with smoked shishitos and shaved bone marrow. Following in the footsteps of District locations in San Francisco and Oakland, the San Jose one invites patrons to unwind with sofa-bed seating in the lounge, which is accented by the original brick and timber of this historic building.

The horseshoe Brazilian wood bar has a wine and whiskey tower highlighted by an original turn-of-the-century stained glass window. Two projection screens play vintage movies—when San Jose Sharks games are not must-watch viewing.
65 N. San Pedro St., 669.292.5252
