On Wednesday night, Hotel Valencia at Santana Row in San Jose, threw their summer kick-off soiree featuring their famous Poptails. The event was intimate, and included a live DJ, photo booth, passed appetizers, and of course, Poptails!

Hotel Valencia featured three of their famous Poptails at the event. There was Strawberry, Mango, and an Island mixture. I enjoyed Mango and Strawberry, while my husband tried the Strawberry and Island. They were all delicious! Who doesn’t want a Popsicle inside their drink? The strawberry Poptail also included generous chunks of fruit, which was so yummy!

My hubby met me at the event after work, and when I arrived, he had already found my group of friends, and checked me in. Love him! It was so nice to hang out with my friends and enjoy a nice summer evening; even though there was a foggy breeze in the air.

If you are local to the Bay Area, and are looking for a fun spot for happy hour, definitely head over to Hotel Valencia for a Poptail this summer. It is so perfect on hot days! They will make a non-alcoholic one upon request too. Love that!

Now if you happen to be out of town, and are looking for the perfect place to stay while visiting Silicon Valley this summer, check out Hotel Valencia!

Last week Hotel Valencia at Santana Row hosted a Summer Kickoff party featuring a fun, summer drink named a “Poptail.” The Poptails featured a Popsicle and small amount of alcohol. There was also a mock Poptail offered, which Laura enjoyed, that featured a Popsicle and sparkling water. These drinks will be offered throughout the summer season at Hotel Valencia. The Popsicle was very refreshing!

The party attracted a very large crowd, which included some of my friends! It was fun to be able to run into some of my friends, and fellow local bloggers, at the event. Kendra Scott had a table at the Poptail party which gave guests details about their upcoming store opening. They also hosted a raffle where several guests were able to win beautiful jewels by Kendra Scott! You can read about the new store opening online here.

After the party, Laura and I enjoyed a yummy dinner at Pizza Antica. We sat outside, which was perfect since it was still around eighty degrees outside at 7:30pm. It was such a fun evening!

“To welcome the summer season, Hotel Valencia Santana Row is throwing a luxurious Summer Kickoff Party. On Thursday, June 2nd from 5:30-7:30pm, party goers can enjoy small bites and poptails: alcohol-infused fruit popsicles topped with prosecco, at The Terrace, an intimate courtyard café surrounded by blooming bougainvillea and the murmur of a water fountain.

All summer long, poptails will be served for those wanting to partake in the sunshine and enjoy lounging by the pool. Guests will enjoy the breathtaking architecture and delight in views of European-inspired Santana Row below.

Nestled in the heart of Silicon Valley, Hotel Valencia provides the perfect sanctuary for travelers in the midst of the technology-driven hub. Stepping into the entrance, guests are transported to a place reminiscent of the Spanish Golden Age where walls feature embossed plaster treatments with hand-carved details, wrought iron chandeliers hang from a raked plaster ceiling and contemporary Iberian-inspired furniture is showcased.

The luxurious Hotel Valencia also transformed several areas of the modern boutique inn by adding Mediterranean accents. Long oak credenzas with custom stenciling and nail head decorated chairs and night stands complete the design. Hotel Valencia’s recent renovations transformed several areas of the property to accentuate its Old-World Spanish appeal.” _Hotel Valencia, Santana Row.

I look forward to seeing you at the event on June 2! It will be a lot of fun!
