Great Entertainment

With Mark's entertainment background, it's no surprise that music is a major part of the Watermark experience.

In the elegant first floor dining room, Fridays and Saturdays feature light live music adding to the warmth of the ambience of your dining experience. Thursday through Sunday, the third floor W2O rooftop lounge comes alive with memorable performances from the best local bands and surprise guests. With its friendly U-shaped bar and aquatic themed decor, the W2O rooftop lounge is the place to be in Ventura. In warm weather, the roof opens to the sky, the sunset views are memorable and the dance floor is jumpin' all night long.

Up Close & Personal

Then there are the popular "Living Room" concerts where the 1st floor dining room tables are cleared, a stage is set and an intimate group of customers can enjoy name performers in an intimate setting - it's like a back stage pass to great entertainment.

The Watermark wine dinners are not to be missed

Concerts Without the Crowds

Throughout the year, The Watermark hosts a variety of special events. Wine dinners featuring the finest local California wineries along with multi-course dinners are not to be missed. A block away, in the Watermark's larger music venue, is the W Gallery. Built in 1926, this former Bank of America transforms into a intimate concert hall where a variety of professional music artists perform.

"I love what the Watermark has brought to Ventura - the best local and internationally renowned entertainers from so many different places and introducing different kinds of music to our small beach town."

So true and the beat goes on.
