Liberty Station’s 361-acre waterfront urban village is located within San Diego’s storied Point Loma community. A peninsula jutting into the sea, Point Loma was the site where San Diego was first discovered, and with Liberty Station’s strong history as a former Naval Training Center (and the U.S. Navy’s first foothold in Southern California), the transformed naval base-to-neighborhood has undoubtedly had a profound effect on every aspect of life and culture, past and present, in San Diego.
Today, Liberty Station is filled with a curated mix of artisans, makers and galleries, locally-based shops, restaurants, family-friendly entertainment, cultural activities and acres of public parks and open gardens where locals and visitors alike come to discover the true spirit of San Diego.
As one of Southern California’s most unique destinations, visitors to Liberty Station immediately feel ensconced in history, with hidden pathways, breathtaking vistas and grand Spanish Colonial Revival architecture, which was constructed during the 1920s and signifies the weight and security of the former U.S. Naval Base.
At the northern most end of Liberty Station, the Arts District is burgeoning hub for San Diego’s most promising restaurateurs and hospitality collectives, who are repurposing the naval base’s old mess hall, a fire station, an auditorium and former military barracks to usher in an exciting class of concepts. Adjacent to The Loma Club’s historic nine-hole golf course, the Arts District will soon welcome The LOT, a hybrid luxury cinema and dining experience; Liberty Public Market, a 22,000 square foot artisan market housing more than thirty local specialty purveyors; Moniker General, a modular retail store, furniture gallery, tap room and coffee bar; in addition to a handful of hotly anticipated culinary concepts that share in the collaborative ethos of Liberty Station’s growing community.
Activities are abundant throughout the year at Liberty Station, from Friday Night Liberty, a monthly showcase of local artist galleries and cultural performances to the bi-annual Liberty Station Block Party, a community celebration that highlights the fresh and unique business that call Liberty Station home with a walkabout-style evening of complimentary tastings, activities and entertainment.
