Downtown Livermore Restaurants – the Best of the Best!
First Street Alehouse
First up, is the First Street Alehouse! Come for the beer – stay for the atmosphere! The stunning woodwork provides the traditional bar feeling, while the personal décor put up by the staff, including family photos, reminds everyone that this is a place for good food and friendships. First Street Alehouse also houses the largest publicly displayed beer can collection in the United States! Over 6000 beer cans are on permanent display here. They offer local beers and wines, thick and juicy burgers and even beer-battered fish and chips.
Pura Vida Cocina Latina and Sangria Bar
Get a taste of the tropical and Latin flavors at Pura Vida. Cuisines are represented from Costa Rica, Peru, Colombia, El Salvador, Chile, Cuba and more! But you have to order what they are most known for: Sangria! There is no better place than to hang out on their patio with a flight of sangrias in front of you and your friends. If you’re looking for a change of pace from the usual fare, Pura Vida is the place for you!
Sanctuary Ultra Lounge
Sanctuary is the best place to find the nightlife in Downtown Livermore! Enjoy the lounge’s incredible food and beverages while watching the game, listening to a rousing round of karaoke or laughing until you cry at their comedy shows. There is even dancing with a live DJ and no cover charge. Come, have a premium quality Angus slider and create fantastic memories with you and your friends.
Sansar Indian Cuisine
This family-owned Indian restaurant prides itself on its caring and friendly service. In fact, they happily accommodate many special diets, such as vegan, gluten-free or egg-free foods. Sansar’s tandoor dishes are so well known that folks travel from all over the Bay Area to eat there! They’ve also added an “order online” option, so you can have your Indian food fix as quickly as possible!
The ambiance in Sauced BBQ feels Southern and welcoming—and there’s a good reason for that. All the wood and corrugated ceiling in the restaurant was reclaimed and shipped in from barns in Georgia and North Carolina. It’s the perfect place to kick back, eat some of the authentic, slow-cooked barbecue and house-made macaroni and cheese. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu!
