"Parlare and a Capitol Time but not for Living"

Came here to 10th Street in Downtown Sac to go to the Parlare Euro Lounge, it is one of those classy dimly lit joints with couches you can lounge on and bottle service. It’s one of those joints that has a dress code: you know, no baseball caps or saggy jeans. Basically, no gang-banger types. But they seem to enforce the dress code very selectively. There is no cover to get in so this place was totally packed and the dance floor was like a sardine can.

Enjoyed it anyway. As to the rest of 10th Street in Downtown, it has lots of other things going for it as well. It stretches from Highway 50 (W Street) to F Street, so it crosses over a lot of blocks. Other notable watering holes along 10th include The Fox and Goose, an English Pub/Restaurant that definitely trends older, and The Social Night Club, which is great dancing fun if you can get by the door and don’t mind waiting for a bit; and a couple of restaurants.

You also have some hotels here--the Shasta and the

Like most of this western part of Sacramento, there are a lot of pre-WWII homes here--lots of bungalows and those older wooden planked buildings. There are also a lot of barred windows and metal screens on doors, so crime is probably pretty bad. Although I should say that when I lived down here I did not really feel particularly in danger.

If you prefer newer looking places, you might try around Discovery Park, where you will find a number of apartment buildings that were created more recently. A one bedroom along 10th can run as little as $625/month. A 2-bedroom would be about $1000.

Also along 10th is the California Museum, a big and fairly dull museum about California. This is also where you will find Capitol Mall and City Hall, so you should expect to have occasional traffic from protests and other kinds of gatherings.

Overall this is nice spot to go clubbing or stage a protest, I am not so sure it is a great place to live.
