From  professional valet staff to secure parking areas there are many options to choose from, these places take the time and stress out of parking. Read on for clubs that have made the list and find out why their valet service in particular is better than others around.

Blowfish Sushi To Die For
355 Santana Row, Ste 1010
San Jose, CA 95128
(408) 345-3848
www.blowfishsushi.com

Price: $7 valet charge

A sushi restaurant by day and lounge bar by night, Blowfish Sushi houses two bars with fantastic seating and great hip hop and dance music. The best thing about the valet parking here is that it is operated by the Santana Row concierge, which means you can valet park and then easily visit any of the facilities within Santana Row. The valet staff is professional and always offers swift service, which means your wait time is considerably cut down, perfect when the nights get chilly. Valet parking is available in several places around Santana Row, but for Blowfish the best places to drop off your vehicle are in front of Hotel Valencia, which has valet parking available seven days a week, or near CineArts Theatre, where valet is available Friday through Sunday.

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel
2050 Gateway Place
San Jose, CA 95110
(408) 437-2167

Price: $15 valet parking charge

The valet parking charge may seem steep, however considering how difficult it can be to find parking space in San Jose for a lengthy period of time, it is worth the extra charge. Plus parking within the hotel parking area with the valet service will give you peace of mind, as both the parking lot and your vehicle will be secure. The valet staff here is both friendly professional. They know the local area so they can even give you advice on the best routes to take home, if needed. Club Max itself is a 21 and over club located at the DoubleTree Hilton, which comes with a no cover charge on Fridays before 10 p.m. Cover bands play R&B and top 40 hits. Expect an old school style club popular with both out of town guests and locals.

Myth Taverna and Lounge
152 Post St.
San Jose, CA 95113
(408) 286-787
www.mythsj.com

Price: $10 or free valet parking with dining purchase of $50 or above

Myth offers Greek fusion cuisine during the day and then turns into a dance club complete with cocktails, wine, beer, live music and DJs as soon as the clock strikes 10. Valet parking is located at the corner of Post and S. Almaden Avenue and costs $10. However, if you spend $50 or more on food and drinks while you’re at the Myth Taverna and Lounge, valet parking is free, which is a great deal considering the probability you’ll spend at least that much is high. The upscale atmosphere and chic motif means you could easily spend hours sitting on the patio listening to live music or chilling inside in the lounge area. Nights spent here are reminiscent of evenings spent in Greece, with bright lights in breezy evenings.

At Tanq, you can expect a less-than-busy bar with an older crowd that keeps to themselves, but the atmosphere is one the best for those looking for a quiet, fun night out or a great first date location. Tanq serves up delicious cocktails, beers and wine at the base of the San Jose Marriott. The valet parking staff here is always willing to help in any way they can, whether it be with directions or local area recommendations. Queues are short, which means waiting is pretty much non-existent at Tanq’s valet. Your car will be parked safely in the hotel parking area, so you can enjoy your night in peace.

San Jose’s Yard House is every beer lover’s dream. The large restaurant and bar features a head-turning amount of beers on tap, and the menus is vast with delicious offerings. The best area to valet park when choosing Yard House as your main destination is Santana Row itself, where parking is available Friday through Sunday.

The walk from the Yard House back to the car is short, and thanks to the great atmosphere of Santana Row itself, is actually enjoyable.
