Santa Barbara's "Funk Zone" is a multi-block neighborhood nestled into a section of downtown Santa Barbara situated between E. Cabrillo Blvd. , lower State Street, and E. Montecito Street (I'm sure this is debatable).
Historically the Funk Zone catered to the local art, wine, & surf communities and yet the Funk Zone of today is an artful blend of old and new. There's still a lot of funk, heart, and soul but it's a little more upscale (as you'll see) these days. Remember, the Funk Zone loves you! Peace!
