Blending Culture & History in DTSA

The Estate on Second may be a recent addition to Orange County’s hospitality scene, but its historic structure has been located in the heart of Santa Ana since 1923. What began as a building to house the Southern Counties Gas Company, has transitioned from office to restaurant and much more. Once we laid eyes on this historic, magnificent building, starting our own venue made perfect sense.

Over the years, exposed beams and worn brick have shaped the building’s resilient framework. Tiles and wood floors from a previous life mark the entryway that leads into a grand room full of arched, Palladian windows flooding the area with natural light. As a mark in history, the architecture of this institution is classically constructed to stand the test of time.

The Estate has now been restored and renovated to become an elegant, full-service venue designed with versatility in mind. Events of great number as well as smaller gatherings are welcomed. Whether you’re hosting a themed cocktail soiree, a corporate holiday party, a birthday extravaganza, or a glamorous wedding, The Estate on Second is there to accommodate.

Located in the heart of Downtown Santa Ana, we’re proud to call ourselves a member of a growing, creative, vibrant community. Santa Ana is one of the last remaining cities in Orange County that can boast a prominent and flourishing downtown area. Not to mention, it has a spectacular array of shops, restaurants, entertainment, and a great arts & culture scene. This creative center is an eclectic collection of unique destinations that will enhance your local experience.

We couldn’t have found a better location for The Estate and we feel extremely grateful to be a contributing resident of this happening city. We like to think that our establishment also brings a bit of its own culture and style to the neighborhood. The Georgian Colonial structure contains gorgeous details from its original construction that speak to its history. Restoring this elegant space and adding specific modern functions makes The Estate a unique space, but also a fitting fixture in the community.
