Happy Tuesday Lovelies! Last week I shared with you my day at Santana Row (here and here), one of my favorite shopping destinations in the San Francisco Bay Area. If you ever visit the Bay Area, this is one of the few shopping hotspots you don’t want to miss. Since we had such a great time that day, we decided to end the week with a date night at Hotel Valencia in Santana Row. This was our first date night since Christian was born, and of course he also came along. Luckily for us he slept through most of dinner and occasionally waking up to check out the pretty scenery, especially the beautiful and colorful bougainvillea wall (you’ll see it at the bottom of this post. It’s gorgeous!). We’re so lucky to have such an easy-going baby!
Our first stop in Hotel Valencia was Terrace, a beautiful outdoor area nestled within the hotel that serves cocktails and appetizer small plates. Don’t be fool by the name because these small plates are very generously portioned. Good thing we came with an appetite! Everything from the shrimp cocktail, beef yakitori skewers, Maine lobster rolls, slider burgers and cheese plate were all delicious. My favorite was the Maine lobster rolls. They’re some of the best I’ve had in the Bay Area. I can’t wait to come back another time to have it again. I’m glad I wore this beautiful lace dress from Lulu’s. It’s form fitted yet it left me plenty of room to wine and dine.
Our fun night wasn’t over yet as we decided to make a quick stop at V Bar to unwind. Check out my experience at V Bar here or your can click on the button below.
