Hot summer weekends all but demand a drive to the beach, but Sundays offer a good reason to stick around: a solid schedule of day parties. Whether it’s live music or DJ, here’s a sampling of ways to wile away the summer days.
The Social Brunch Series @ Sp2
Sp2’s outdoor set-up—a massive patio with wood, brick and succulents—stands on its own. Every Sunday guests can do brunch or drinks on the patio and catch live music. “The Social” features a rotating lineup of bands like Nesta, Hot Pockets, and No Water After Midnight playing R&B, funk, jazz and reggae.
Last Call @ Motif Lounge
With no music boundaries and no dress code, Last Call at the Motif Lounge is all up to what the DJ picks. A standing party for the last five years, Last Call has hosted guest DJs from the Bay Area and beyond. Rotating DJs Eni, Aj Orbit, Two Tons, and Eternal keep the party going Sundays, 4:30-9:30pm, playing just anything on the bpm gamut: trap, hip-hop, house, drum & bass. It’s the kind of party for anyone who loves to get down on the dance floor or who doesn’t mind a few sonic surprises.
Sunday Sessions @ Myth Taverna & Lounge
Every first and third Sunday on the newly renovated patio at Myth Taverna & Lounge, Sunday Sessions brings together fans of R&B, hip-hop and soul. Talents such as the legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff have come to rock the crowd, assisted by a rotating lineup of DJs: Goldenchyld, Wen Davis, Cutso, Remedy and Rated R. Sunday Sessions runs 2-10pm, but has been known to reach maximum capacity by 5pm, so an early arrival is suggested.
Detox Sundays @ The Fairmont Hotel
In its seventh season, Detox Sundays at the Fairmont Hotel will kick off June 22 with L.A. and Las Vegas DJs David Garcia, JJ Flores, and Fabian. Patrons enjoy the rooftop pool, with access to both a full bar and poolside bottle service, with house beats rocking from midday to sunset.
