Stingaree is a Goliath of a night spot with four distinct areas to explore. The ground floor features a full dance floor along with VIP booths. The bar is famous for its extensive wine list and specialty cocktails (including the "Berry Manilow"). Upstairs is the Mezzanine, a more intimate lounge-style area where revelers can sip drinks and survey the action down below. Keep heading skyward and you'll find yourself on the Rooftop Oasis complete with private cabanas, a fire pit more for ambiance than warmth and comfortable lounge seating. See website for menus, wine list, happy hour info, event calendar, online reservations and more.
The Rosary Room owned by Rafa Reyes, began as a small joint but soon grew into a popular hangout. When you step in, the first thing that demands your attention are the rich red walls, original pieces of art and rosary beads all around. The Rosary Room dose not serve a variety of drinks but you can always grab a chilled beer or try the sangria and sake. Come with a bunch of friends, sit back, take it easy and enjoy live performances by local and touring bands. And when there's no live music, the DJ spins the beat to keep the good times flowing.
This lounge bar and nightclub keeps it trendy and chic. If you want a nice and well-lit evening locale to have some cocktails with friends, Side Bar is the place for you. At night, dance to beats by local DJs in a luxurious atmosphere. Ambient lighting and art make Side Bar a stylish addition to San Diego's nightlife landscape.
Located in the Gaslamp quarter, Tesoro is truly a treasure for those who love Mexican food. And that's exactly what Tesoro means in Spanish. It means treasure! Run by the Vera family, this restaurant gives you a choice of great delicacies such as pollo al tequila, lenguado almendrado, chiles rellenos and chocolate crepe cake to name a few. Cocktails, margaritas, wine, tequila and beer are on offer too. Live music events are organized from time to time. Stop by and have a blast!
5th and Island is a less known nightspot that is famous for its superb array of live gigs and music concerts that it holds from time to time. Enjoy your favorite drink as you tap your feet to good music and meet new people. Keep an eye out for the latest happenings at this music hub.
This intensely romantic restaurant offers outstanding Tapas—small, savory dishes served as appetizers or as an entire meal. The salmon, pine nut and cranberry empanada is particularly good, and the rich melted mancheco cheese in the Fundido smears over the crusty bread in a very satisfying way. Enjoy the Tapas in the music-filled bar or dine on a full Spanish meal in the adjacent dining room. The downstairs nightclub is a big draw and also offers dance lessons some nights.
The Ivy boasts San Diego's largest rooftop, where you can unwind in a private cabana, or join the crowd dancing to well-known DJs. Guests are offered a unique way to choose from 88 wines carried here with WineStations. This iconic nightclub features the Lipstik Inc. dancers, who perform to beats from amazing local DJs.
Step inside this faithful replica of a Louisiana roadhouse, start off with a Hurricane Rum Punch, and then order up a Crawfish Etoufee or a Blackened Cajun Chicken dinner. Featuring Cajun cuisine, this venue has spice not only in its entrees, but also in the atmosphere. Dine at the bar, brick dining room or outside patio. As an added bonus, enjoy live jazz and blues music on Thursday-Saturday evenings.
For a dose of live music while having your local American grub, head to Whiskey Girl. The club resembles Hard Rock Cafe with its set of nightly bands performing with enough vigor to make you sit back, tap your feet and clap for every song asking for more. The odd nights also have DJs spinning some fine tunes from their collection. There are ample televisions to keep you entertained with ongoing sports matches if the music isn't of your liking. The American cuisine dominated menu features an array of burgers, sandwiches, salads, classic pub appetizers, pizza and more. Their Sunday brunch is also noteworthy!
When is an upscale and casual Spanish-style restaurant a trendy spot to see and be seen? Only on Friday nights, of course, when the tapas of Ole Madrid turn techno! From 9p-2a each Friday, the younger "en vogue" folks take over this classic restaurant and turn it into a hot nightclub. A disc jockey spins the throbbing beat of techno music as the crowd (packed wall to wall) gets into the groove. Definitely a young crowd. No cover charge is required.
This bar is housed in the oldest building in the Gaslamp Quarter. Come and mingle with beautiful people and groove to either live music or a DJ with tunes from the 1970s through the 1990s. Hardwood floors, soaring ceilings and a 40-foot long mahogany bar give a touch of elegance and class. There are three levels, all offering a large number of beers and delicious cocktails.
Though named the Minus -1 Lounge, there is nothing minus or negative about the place. The lounge is upscale and trendy, with well qualified wait staff who will make you comfortable. The menu is European clubbed with subterranean, which makes it absolutely unique and scrumptious. Open to all party freaks and nocturnal animals Minus -1 Lounge at the Keating Hotel (The) warrants a visit if you are in town.
