The signature Prixe Fixe meal offers dramatic dining for two, beginning with a bottle of Chardonnay or Merlot, proceeding with a soup or salad course, a selection from eight entrees and a shared dessert. Entree choices include Halibut Macadamia, Prime Rib, Filet Mignon or the "Taste of San Diego" shrimp.
While the Southern California coastline offers numerous restaurants, this particular establishment is well known for combining a festive atmosphere with elegant cuisine. The bright yellow and red building is difficult to miss as you drive along the Pacific Coast Highway. The patio dining area is accompanied by a yellow canopy, extensive greenery and a seascape mural. The inside is just as festive, featuring live music every night. Seafood entrees are popular, including Rainbow Trout and Seafood Linguini Priscilla, which combines mussels, shrimp and fresh fish.
Featuring cutting edge live music, this is a popular hot spot in Old Town San Diego. In fact, when this place was known as Spirit Club, it hosted the then-unknown band called R.E.M. The stage continues to seek talent in rock, blues and alternative modes of music to provide live entertainment for San Diego locals and tourists. With a varying entertainment schedule, guests are advised to call for previews of upcoming entertainment on the telephone hotline. A full cash bar is available.
A traditional, half-timbered Tudor-style building houses this eatery, drawing expatriate Englishmen and Anglophiles of all descriptions for the food, music and fun.

Churchill's also offers free wireless internet access to all customers.
This popular club draws an eclectic crowd since it has different features every night that it is open. Saturday nights are popular with 20-somethings because of the 80s retro band that plays all the favorites. The tunes are loud and the atmosphere is lively, making this venue more suited for dancing than for conversation. Arrive for Happy Hour, hosted from 5p-7p, and you will get to munch on the all-you-can-eat buffet.
O'Hungry's is a wildly popular restaurant and bar with a few gimmicks up its sleeve, like the yard-long beer served in a glass tube (the tourists go wild). There is a guitarist most nights of the week. The clientele is varied, but tourists, Navy officers and college students have been known to mingle together. In addition to the yard-long beers, there is a full bar. The menu includes lentil soup, sandwiches, burgers and more.
A sturdy, spicy meal offered here is the Chimichange de Pollo, a deep-fried flour tortilla wrapped around chicken and topped with melted cheese, chile sauce and tomatillo-jalapeno salsa. Not sure about spicy Mexican food? A good compromise is the Carne Asada Plate, flavorful sirloin steak quick-seared and served with refried beans, Mexican rice and guacamole. Ten different beers on draft, a full bar and appetizers are available in the Coyote Cantina or served to your table. Patio dining puts you in the middle of Old Town shoppers and gawkers. Cafe Coyote opens at 7.30am daily.
This terrific bar and lounge features great music of all kinds from salsa to techno to jazz to R&B. Saturday nights are the most popular and fun, when a Latin dance called Salsa Rueda takes over the house. There is a different theme each night. Sunday nights offer an after-hours event from 3am-9am. If things get too hot and spicy on the dance floor, you can move to the outdoor area where tired dancers go to rest.
Consistently voted best gay bar this is one of the most popular clubs in San Diego. The club celebrates alternative lifestyles and caters to upscale men who do not mind spending a little extra for the memorable environment. The decor is reminiscent of a hot club in New Orleans. Most of the folks who frequent this spot enjoy casual conversation, singing fun songs along with the piano and sipping cocktails. Expect particularly large crowds on Friday and Saturday nights.
This place has everything. Nearly every night, live music is featured with up and coming folk singers and bluegrass musicians plying their trade. On the rare evenings when there is no music, look for poetry readings, writing seminars or even swing dance lessons. On the menu, tea and coffee in all varieties are available. The menu also offers beautiful tarts, cakes, pastries and cookies, as well as grilled panini sandwiches and salads.
If you like to dance and party all night long, then Spin is the place for you. The club houses three levels, five rooms, four bars, pool tables and a rooftop smoking patio that overlooks downtown. One of the rooms features the latest hip-hop tunes. The club's big screen video and monitor walls and laser lighting give the effect of being at a rave. The warehouse-esque building adds to the modern atmosphere. Not suitable for quiet conversation, this club is for the lively party crowd.
Got a craving for Chicken Chow Mein in the wee small hours of the morning? Or maybe you just have to taste an order of Pork Fried Rice?
