Whenever my husband and I find ourselves in downtown San Jose, we always end up at Katies for a drink. The bar is fairly large with a lot hide-away booths/tables to sit at. The jukebox is great, the service is great (very friendly, down-to-earth), and I love the overall atmosphere. My only complaint is that there's rarely any food being served, if any at all. They used to a long time ago, but they've only served food a few times these past few years. San Jose's sister pub, Katie Blooms in Campbell, serves food, but that atmosphere there is just not the same. Great place to hang out!
Pros: location, atmosphere, jukebox
Cons: no food
