I was in the San Pedro area of San Jose for about 6 weeks and every Tuesday some friends and I (girls and guys) would hit up Hoxton, because they would have "girls night" we loved it.

I had the unfortunate experience of visiting hoxton on a crowded Tuesday night, the line to get in was rediculous and once we got inside it was worse the whole place smelled terrible of body odor, it was so crowded inside that you could not even walk inside, the service was slow and then the bar tender kept my bank...

There is no better place in all of San Jose to go. Their best night is on Tuesday but Friday and Saturday also gets pretty good and once in a while they have concerts on Thursday.

Live DJ plays really interesting music, mostly Dub Step but few cool mixes in with Hip-Hop, Dance, House... It does get pretty crowded, but it has an outside terrace that serves bar food during the night for those with munchies. It seems like entering a Frat Party in a college town, but with a big mix of hipsters and all... More

I havn't eaten in Hoxton but I did attend a concert in it and it was great. The bar is divided into 2 areas with separate bars. The first is the bar proper with the scene, a dancefloor and comfy couches. The second is the garden separated from the 1st with a plexi window, which allows the people in the... More

The place it's located in a safe and beautiful part of San José. Easy to find but not to get a parking place. The music is great, every week they have several different activities for all tastes in music. The bar inside its very stylish. Great food, I love the fish and chips here.

Located just outside of San Jose, it's an amazing old mansion converted into a hippity hip bar/music venue/restaurant. Great twisted Victorian furnishings/art inside. For anybody traveling through San Jose, there is more than first meets the eye. So glad this place was recommended to me...

The drinks are cheap, there is lots of dancing... the music is alright. It's a fun place to go with friends, and it's quite safe.
