Nightlife

People say that the nightlife scene of Santa Clara is not very appealing, the city only having a few great bars where you can enjoy a drink with friends, most of the partying happening in the fraternity houses from SCU campus.

 

Students are disappointed because of the fact that there are no worth-while dancing clubs in the city, so, if during your stay in Santa Clara, you get in the mood to dance, you'll have to get behind the wheel or take a cab and head to San Jose, which is only 10 minutes away from the city, where there are more than enough "nightly" choices that will provide all the nightly excitement you can think of.
