Stay Classy, Sacramento

Shea GuntherMaher

When was the last time you indulged in fine dining, a trip to the theatre or a night at a swanky hotel? For most of us it’s been a while, maybe never. My question is: what are we waiting for? Get out there and live a little, and here is how:


Start out your classy evening with a decadent meal at Ella Dining Room and Bar. Ella offers a warm, vibrant downtown neighborhood atmosphere and boasts delicious food sourced mainly from the locally based community of farmers, ranchers, growers, and artisans. By the time you finish your luxurious dinner you’ll be ready for a high-brow evening at the ballet.


Make your way to the Community Center Theatre to enjoy the latest productions by the Sacramento Ballet or California Musical Theatre. What’s on the stage now you ask? Only the most famous ballet of all time – Swan Lake, returning for the first time in fifteen years. Timeless beauty, compelling drama, and poetic passion weave a spellbinding tale of true love conquering all. Sumptuous scenery, opulent costumes, and stellar dancing combine to create an evening of enthralling magic. Who wouldn’t want to partake in that?

Your classy evening doesn’t have to end when the curtains descend. Extend your stay and get a room at The Citizen Hotel, a first-rate luxury and boutique hotel with 198 uniquely designed guestrooms and suites. The enchanting combination of The Citizen’s old world character and modern-day amenities make it a perfect destination for enjoying an artsy and indulgent weekend in downtown Sacramento.
