Funk Zone

Explore the history of Santa Barbara’s converted warehouse district while familiarizing yourself with the numerous wine tasting rooms, brew pubs, and restaurants congregated in the 10 square block area.  The 90 minute tour with 12 stops of interest – including a stop with a local artist – will cover the history of the prestigious Hotel Californian, Lark Restaurant, Lockheed Aircraft, Bekins and Weber Bakery buildings, Channel Islands surfboards, McConnell’s Ice Cream, etc.  Understand how the Funk Zone has transitioned over time and what lies ahead.  A portfolio of nearly 50 old 11×17 photos helps place you back in time.  At the end of the tour you’ll get a chance to win a McConnell’s ice cream cone and receive the Funk Zone map showing over 60 restaurants, brew pubs, art galleries and wine tasting rooms in the area.  Optional wine tasting vouchers available for $8 – good for a three-taste flight at SB Winery, the best deal in town.
