I can’t believe all the hype made over these few blocks of pretentious restaurants. It’s not funky at all and everything is shut down by 7:00 on the weeknights. Also, the marketing brochure placed in local hotels doesn’t include accurate information.

Took my relatives to the Funk Zone for a easy walk to see the sights and visit some shops and wine tasting rooms. It was a lovely day and the shop owners were all friendly- the wines in Santa Barbara are always great. I recommend...More

Absolutely loved this area for its old life reinvented for today's sensibilities. Old buildings that likely would have been torn down now reclaimed into galleries, wine tasting venues, breweries, some retail (none of it looking mass or chain like). Pleasant to walk around. Lots of...More

Err...funky little place, we did the Urban Wine Trail calling in at DV8 and Santa Barbara Wine Collective and finishing at Figueroa Brewing Co. All with the stunning mountains as the backdrop

Perhaps our timing was off since we arrived early in the day.....but there wasn't much to do or see in the Funk Zone. There are only a handful of shops and they are pricey. I imagine the place gets more lively later in they day/night.

My girlfriend and I stopped by here on our way home from Nor Cal and we decided to check out the “funk zone” because of it’s reputation. This area sums up Santa Barbra pretty well. A bunch of over priced yuppie garbage that’s more “beach”...More

You would have to check an individual shop for days and times, but the area would not close down. It’s like a mini town.
