“Nice Bar/Lounge”
Review of 55 South

55 South
Ranked #2 of 51 Nightlife in San Jose

Reviewed October 4, 2018

After the first time I came here, it's one of my go-to spots if I go downtown. The bar/lounge has a really nice atmosphere. It can get fairly loud when it gets crowded (but what bar doesn't).
I highly recommend the Moscow Mule! It tastes amazing and is quite refreshing. The bartenders here really seem like they know their stuff.

Took my wife for a drink to 555 and we really enjoyed ourselves. The wine list was limited. The cocktails are excellent classic with clever, subtle twists. The staff was very polite.

Hipsters....hipsters everywhere....

I walked in an hour before closing and it was busy, small venue with maybe 50-75 people. Maybe a good spot for after work? I'm not sure if they have a happy hour

probably won't come here for any weekend activities if I can help it

I sought this bar out as they stick Scottish malt whisky bottles offering an opportunity to taste before you buy their unique offerings
There was a great range of SMWS whisky together with an outstanding collection of whisky from around the world, bourbon and far beyond but best of all really knowledgeable and helpful staff. Kenton was a fantastic guide to the incredible range and willing to help with small tastes and selections
