Cool winter evenings here on the Monterey Peninsula make wine and hors d’oeuvres hour especially cozy at the Old Monterey Inn. Join us for incredible Monterey events this 2013. The enormous fireplace burns warmly each evening while guests gather around, relax and get to know each other over a glass of our house wine produced locally in the Carmel Valley. To complete the scene, we have lately had the pleasure of enjoying our 100 year old grand piano being played by Mr. Marco Antonio Vazquez. With just the right mix of selections and the delicate touch to make the background music seamlessly smooth, Mr. Vazquez provides an elegant backdrop to many of our weekend evenings. Several of our guests have commented that they find it difficult to want to leave the ambiance of our living room to go to their dinner reservations!
This is definitely the time of year that makes one want to linger over a glass of wine or a cocktail and enjoy live music in a warm, cozy spot! Several other locations around the Peninsula offer an opportunity to do just that! A few that come to mind, and are very close to our luxury Monterey Bed and Breakfast are Cibo Italian Restaurant in downtown Monterey, right by the famous Fisherman’s Wharf. Cibo offers fabulous Italian dining and live music six nights a week. Their evenings include Soft Jazz, R & B, and even an occasional Salsa or Reggae night (if you feel like dancing, this is your spot)! Next on the list would be Bistro Beaujolais right in the heart of downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea. Bistro guests listen to live music Fridays and Saturdays, and enjoy alfresco dining in a beautiful outdoor courtyard complete with fire pits and heat lamps of course! Last, but certainly not least, would be the famous Mission Ranch Restaurant. Built in the 1800’s and overlooking Point Lobos and the Monterey Bay, this piece of Carmel history boasts a long established tradition of excellent American Cuisine and one of the coolest Piano Bars around! They don’t take reservations here, but what a great place to wait for your table!!
Come join us at the Old Monterey Inn, we will get your itinerary for a weekend of live music enjoyment all set up for you!
