Dining, Entertainment & Shopping
Downtown Los Gatos offers plenty of spots for enjoying drinks, food, and company.
Sidecar Modern Tavern
is a local favorite, serving as a casual meeting place with innovative cocktails and delicious shareable plates. From fried prawns to pizza to lamb shoulder sliders, the menu is full of tasty snacks to connect over. On weekends they even serve brunch-themed cocktails.
For another menu packed with shareables, Los Gatos residents spend time at Flights
, where everything is served in flights of three. The cocktail menu features flights of frozen margaritas, mules, and signature creations, all with their own three-way spin. With food choices centered around an elevated comfort food theme, diners can feast on Swedish meatballs, classic meatloaf, sweet potato ravioli, and more. For dessert, indulge in a beignet flight.
Pizza night in Los Gatos calls for a trip to Oak and Rye
, where the expansive menu and drink list can accommodate any taste. They also serve a delicious brunch of breakfast pizzas and classic breakfast items such as french toast.
For the full Michelin Star experience, dinner at Manresa
is the best option. The seasonal Chef’s tasting menu is carefully compiled and the restaurant earns countless accolades each year.
Things to Do
Downtown Los Gatos is home to countless community-building events. Every year in Lincoln Park, the town puts on a Rotary Fine Art in the Park
, where over 100 artists showcase their work! Profits go toward scholarships and local projects. At Town Plaza Park,
the farmers market runs year-round on Sunday mornings. In the summer, catch Music in the park or Screen on the Green for family-friendly fun that brings the whole town together.
Check out local businesses like Icing on the Cake
bakery to peek in on the beautiful pastries, cakes, and cookies in the making — and pick up a delicious treat!
For an afternoon outdoors enjoying a lovely drink, locals head to Los Gatos Soda Works
, a specialty cocktail bar offering both indoor and outdoor seating. Just as delicious as its creative cocktails are its small plates, like smoked trout rillette and lobster spring rolls.
Those who prefer beer over cocktails can opt for an afternoon at Out of the Barrel
, a local taproom showcasing various independent craft breweries. With both indoor and outdoor seating, it’s a great place to pass the time regardless of the weather.
