Best Alternative Venue for Live Music - 2013
The Santora Building
The Santa Ana art walk has a vibrant scene every first Saturday night of the month, boasting an eclectic range of art next to an even-livelier nightclub and music scene. But wander down the stairs of the Santora Building and check out what sorts of music/art happenings are going on there. While you peruse the artist studios and art showcases, you'll always be in range to hear whatever band is playing, and with the absence of a stage, you're close enough to the talent to watch the beads of sweat running down their faces as they belt out a bluesy tune or jam with frenetic passion. Just one of the things that makes downtown SanTana feel like home to its artistic dwellers.
