Dance, Drink & Be Merry in Downtown Ventura

by Geneva Ives

Ventura County has never been known to have a great number of dance clubs or late night venues, however in recent years downtown Ventura has made a significant effort to create nightlife attractions that vary from lounges to wine bars.

Some bars take advantage of ocean views and proximity, while others create just the right atmosphere to create for dancing, drinking and socializing. Brew pubs such as Barrelhouse 101 or Dargan’s are the perfect locations to grab a beer with friends and catch a sporting event on television, while spots such as The Tavern or Bombay Bar & Grill are places that bring people together with live music, DJs and dance floors.

Its not surprising to see people in shorts, tank tops and flip flops at any of these venues. Even catching a show at The Majestic Ventura Theater will not require dressy attire, although you won’t stand out if you do decide to get a little dressed up. In the mood for a laugh? Head to the Ventura Harbor Comedy Club to see acts big and small. You can even take comedy workshop.

Most clubs and bars close by 2 a.m., but that shouldn’t be a problem. In Ventura, it’s easy to have a fulfilling night of fun!
