The Park Ultralounge is where the elite of Sacramento come to play at night. Though its cover fees are more expensive than what you might expect from a Sacramento spot, this club is one of the nicest in the area. It features a posh interior and an outdoor patio with couches, firepits, and even curtained beds in the VIP section. Oddly enough, the bathrooms have made this club notorious around Sacramento: the men's and women's bathrooms are separated by two-way mirrors. The Ultralounge also offers food from the neighboring restaurants Mason's, which serves contemporary American cuisine, and Ma Jong's Asian Diner. Together, the Ultralounge, Mason's, and Ma Jong's make up The Park Downtown, a trendy area spawned from Sacramento's efforts toward sophistication.

On Saint Patrick's Day, this is the place to be in Sacramento. Inside the lobby of a steel and glass office tower on the K Street Mall, this wood-paneled Irish bar looks like an antique. Established in 1991, this authentic facsimile of a traditional Irish pub has beer and food. There are plenty of brews on tap at Gallagher's Irish Pub including a variety of ales and ciders. On the menu, you will find the traditional corned beef and cabbage, as well as lamb and oysters.
Before this theater was built in 1849, the only entertainment available in Sacramento was found in gambling houses and saloons. Then, once the theater was built, 49ers starved for culture paid $5 in gold dust to enjoy dramatic and musical entertainment. In 1850, the Sacramento River flooded the theater. This reconstructed 80-seat theater is designated as an historic landmark. Docent-led tours are free and feature computerized slide shows covering Sacramento's early rough-and-tumble history. During summer weekends, the theater produces period melodramas as well as featuring musical entertainment.
