Enjoy Great Food, Cocktails, And Music At This Southern California Speakeasy
By Natasha Kayes|Published November 03, 2023
I was born and raised in sunny Southern California and will never tire of the West Coast, although I spent several years living in Southeast Asia, about as far from California as you can get. Wherever I am in the world, I love straying from the beaten path, experiencing local life, and discovering hidden gems - camera in hand. The beach is my happy place and when I am not there (or writing), you will usually find me baking, watching movies, and cuddling my pugs. I have traveled around the country and around the world, and it never, ever gets old. Being able to combine my passion for travel and my love of writing is nothing short of a dream.
I was born and raised in Southern California and never tire of finding new things to see, experience, and of course, eat and drink. For the past eight years, I have lived about an hour north of Los Angeles in Oxnard, and I have my favorite local spots, of course. Unlike the big city, we don’t have a ton of new restaurants and attractions opening all the time, but I am still discovering things to do in Oxnard’s hidden gems, like this little speakeasy downtown. I had heard about the place for a while, but it was only recently that a friend and I finally decided it was time for a visit. I don’t know if it was exactly what either of us expected, but the charming 1901 speakeasy in Oxnard, CA, may become a new favorite place to spend an evening with friends.
When it comes to finding things to do in Oxnard, it is hard to beat a cozy evening full of excellent food, cocktails, and music. Although this wasn’t the mysterious, secret-entrance kind of speakeasy I kind of expected, it was such a lovely evening, I know we will be back again soon. If you haven’t had the chance to try this place, you can find information and menus for the speakeasy and the restaurant on The 1901 website.
If you are visiting Ventura County, The 1901 is a great place to kick back after a day of adventure like a trip to the Channel Islands or a whale-watching cruise with Island Packers!
