 Throughout the world today the quintessential image of an Irish Pub, whether it be in Dublin, Boston or Santa Cruz, is a neighborhood place where people gather to share good drinks, great food and lots of cheer. The pub has always been a place of camaraderie; a place where friends meet new friends – and old – and Rosie McCann’s exemplifies the best in Irish hospitality.

Great food during the day then watch out it is KARAOKE TIME…………..

This may look like a dive bar in Japantown, but Bamboo 7 also happens to be the happening place for karaoke. The clientele ranges from happy businessmen to bored, hyperactive college dropouts. No matter how good or bad a singer you may be, the audience will cheer you on. Add a couple of really stiff drinks from the bar, a friendly wait staff and the night will roll along just fine, no matter what key you are or are not.

JJ’s Blues Club, Live Blues, San Jose Ca

3439 Stevens Creek Boulevard, San Jose, CA 95117-1043

(408) 243-6441 ‎

JJ’s is like the Terminator of blue music, it won’t stop. Though they tend to stick more now to a network of favorites they built up over the years, along with some top Bay Area talent who drop by regularly, this is still the uncontested official home of the blues in the South Bay. There’s music seven days a week, most often, and audiences party till midnight and beyond, even on school nights. — Metro Bars & Clubs, June 16, 2010
