Guests to Bliss 525 are ushered into a multilevel bar and restaurant, where live jazz and blues entertain ears on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights as palates luxuriate in eclectic California cuisine and fine wines. Exchange romantic glances with a dining partner or three in the warm light of the main dining room, or breeze past the elegant staircase to relish the breezes and prime views of runaway blimps from the outdoor mezzanine. A quartet of white cheddar, asiago, mozzarella, and cotija cheeses commingle with truffle oil in the baked mac 'n' cheese, and glasses of Chateau St. Michelle riesling and Stella Di Notte pinot grigio reflect the eatery's casual Italian ambiance. Pinot noirs pair perfectly with juicy all-beef sliders sprinkled with gorgonzola, peppery arugula, peppercorn aioli, and caramelized onions. Or admire the way the 2009 Sanford chardonnay tastes equally tempting when sipped alongside pan-fried crab cakes with mango salsa, or wrung from a neighbor's napkin.
With a bar, restaurant, and event space inspired by classic Italian design, Bliss 525 swathes guests in an upscale atmosphere. Arched doorways inside the facility open onto a floating staircase and dining tables with high-backed chairs. At mealtime, plates fill with hearty but healthy Californian fare such as Caribbean pasta, braised short ribs, and bruchetta stuffed chicken.
Each week, Bliss 525 hosts blues, jazz, rock, and soul musicians inside the bar. Guests can pair the melodic notes and tinted hues of sunset on the outdoor patio with selections from Bliss 525's full bar of fine wines, tap beers, and fresh-squeezed cocktails.
