Experience Downtown Healdsburg
First stop, Wine!
Alright, so we all know that downtown Healdsburg is riddled with fantastic wineries and tasting rooms! Our Camellia in is within walking distance to everything. We highly recommend you start your day at C Donatiello and their nice little tasting room. Our friend Meghan will entertain you as she pours you samples of their tasty Pinots and Chardonnays. Another great stop is a trip to see our friend Libby Cunningham at Bella Vineyards and Wine Caves. She’ll help you to enjoy some wonderful Zinfandels as you enjoy a fun day drinking and picnicking. Bring your dog too, it’s a great atmosphere for your pet.
Next stop, Cocktails and Appetizers!
Oh, you better believe that downtown Healdsburg has you covered when it comes to places for exceptional cocktails and appetizers. Okay, so you’re leaving Meghan and Donatiello’s tasting room, now what? Just cross the street and hit up Dukes! The bar is gorgeous with a great staff. They have a fantastic little kitchen right next door. Order up and a cute little woman will bring you some tasty treats. We recommend the Chicken sandwich as well as the pork tacos. You can’t go wrong.
After you’ve sampled a nice Manhattan at Dukes in downtown Healdsburg, we suggest turning right, and heading up the Plaza street and taking another right on Healdsburg avenue. It’s then just a short walk to get to Willie’s Seafood and Raw Bar. This is a great airy, lively seafood café with a raw bar that serves tapas, lobster rolls, with a broad wine list. You can’t go wrong with this little gem in downtown Healdsburg.
How about a nightcap!
Downtown Healdsburg has a great list of things to do and places to see. If you are winding down your night and are looking for a place to put some music on the Juke box, have a stiff drink and enjoy a cast of characters straight out of the tv show Cheers, then John and Zeke’s is the place to hit up. Put a little James Brown on the Juke Box, drink a dirty Martini and play some shuffle board or pool. It’s a fun lively atmosphere and the regulars are a riot. If you want to see one of the regulars really cut the rug, put on some Tom Petty, we promise you won’t be disappointed.
Your last stop
If it’s before 7 pm and you’re roaming downtown Healdsburg after having your nightcap, you may want to have a delicious cup of coffee. We suggest hitting up the Flying Goat Coffee shop. You are about 800 feet from us at the Camellia Inn, so stop off and have an espresso, mocha or a hot tea. You can hang out at the flying goat and enjoy a laid-back atmosphere, or you can bring it to your room at the Camellia Inn, which is only 2 minutes from the coffee shop.
