When most people think of Santa Barbara they usually think about two ways of life: the beach life and the fancy life. The truth is, is that there is much more to Santa Barbara life than that! Ian Filippini Santa Barbara happens to love the Funk Zone in downtown Santa Barbara (www.funkzone.net).
The Funk Zone is and eclectic group of art galleries, art shops, hole in the wall bars, great restaurants, and the ever evolving Urban Wine Trail. The Funk Zone is slightly off the beat and path (for downtown Santa Barbara). To find out exactly where the Funk Zone is and how to get there, visit this website https://funkzone.net/map-of-the-zone/.
The Funk Zone is all about creativity and so there is an art walk approximately once a month where local artists can exhibit their work on the streets to get more exposure than in the galleries. Along with all the art and creativity there are also several great restaurants located in the Funk Zone such as Lucky Penny, Seven, and The Lark. Ian Filippini Santa Barbara has visited each of these restaurants and gives each of them a thumbs up!
The Funk Zone is really a site to see, but it is better explained by going there in person. The next time you are wondering what to do on a weekend afternoon or evening, think of the Funk Zone!
