About request an edit to this page

With two levels of dance floors (and bars) and a pristine ambience, Motif offers a mix of house, EDM and hip-hop, with the occasional live rapper performing. They have nights for the 18-and-over crowd twice a month (on Thursdays) and regular appearances from 49ers playmakers.

An eye-catching, light-bedazzled two-story venue with a full restaurant, two bars, DJs and an amazing glass installation comprising thousands of pieces of black obsidian. The entertainment defines the ultralounge style with splashy visiting DJs and a dress code mandating chicness.

Motif combines the best of both worlds in the San Jose restaurant and nightlife scene. Amazing food, unique décor, sexy ambiance & excellent music that's incomparable to any other venue in the area.


World Cuisine. This San Jose restaurant and nightclub offers not only delicious, worldly cuisine, but it also hosts events on a weekly basis. Motif’s modern décor and personal ambiance make it an enticing venue with an eclectic array of dishes from which to choose.


A newer addition to the San Jose nightlife scene, Motif is a stunning two-story venue with a full restaurant, two bars, two DJs and quite possibly the coolest piece of art we've ever seen in a bar: a suspended glass installation of 7,000 pieces of black obsidian by an artist from London. The avant garde interior is daringly modern and unique, with light tricks and cutting-edge goodies around every corner. While the wickedly artistic stylings would most certainly be appealing to bohemian types, this tragically snazzy place rocks the whole ultralounge thing a little to hard with prices that could leave even a doctor's bank account in the red.
