Five Points is Downtown San Jose’s craft cocktail lounge with an homage to its notorious, 19th century namesake neighborhood of Lower Manhattan. The walls are lined with antique books and artwork celebrating the one-time neighborhood, and the curtain-concealed parlor, dim lighting, dark wood tables and benches, and communal punch bowls strengthen the speakeasy motif of the San Pedro Square-adjacent bar. The saloon is dedicated to honoring old-school drinking culture with a cocktail menu full of modern takes on vintage favorites, like the Mulberry Bend Cobbler (rye, port, apricot, cinnamon, and citrus) and the 1885 smash (amaro, curacao, citrus, and mint).
