Here’s how we “jazzed up” our typical mid-week date night… starting with live music hosted by Laguna Beach Live!​​

Alli and Bobby here from Traveling Newlyweds. Are you ready for two of the best-kept secrets in Laguna Beach? Both of them happen to take place on Wednesday nights… causing us to believe that Wednesday nights just might be the new Friday night!

For only $30 per person (if you buy in advance, $35 at the door), you can attend LAGUNA BEACH LIVE’S JAZZ WEDNESDAYS, hosted at [SEVEN-DEGREES] Not only is the venue beautiful (planning a wedding? Check this place out!), but the music is jaw-dropping. 

 Every week they switch up the style and band, the one we attended was Mark Towns Latin Jazz Band, and we were tapping our toes the whole time. There was even a special appearance by Bijon Watson, who played trumpet in one of our favorite movies, “La La Land”! Talk about top-notch entertainment!! The show starts at 6pm and goes until 8pm, giving you two full hours to enjoy the live music, have a drink (or two!), and even dance along. It’s relaxing, inspiring, and extremely romantic.

They have a full bar and catered dinner/snacks for guests to purchase, as well as a ten-minute intermission halfway through. We met new friends and admired the community and camaraderie that we saw. It’s truly a social event that people from all over Southern California and Los Angeles attend. 

Needless to say, we can’t think of a better break in the workweek routine. You know where we’ll be every Wednesday, but let’s just keep this our little secret.
