2. Go see some live music at Parker Jazz Club. It’s a world-class basement lounge in the heart of the Warehouse District with live jazz five nights a week.

5. Treat yourself to afternoon tea on the weekend at Hotel Ella. The menu features organic teas, assorted savory sandwiches, and seasonal scones with crème fraîche and butter.

6. Beat the heat in a private cabana at the Colton House Hotel pool. They offer daily pool passes complete with poolside service featuring Simona’s eclectic bar menu.
