San Diego's Sizzling Nightclub Scene

After an afternoon at the beach or touring San Diego, a night on the town can cap off the perfect day. The heart of San Diego's nightlife action is found in Downtown's lively Gaslamp Quarter. Here, 16 walkable city blocks are filled with rooftop bars, hot nightclubs boasting celebrity DJ's, moody jazz clubs and happening restaurants spilling out onto the sidewalk. Many of the clubs feature live music or stage shows with themes ranging from flamenco dance to burlesque. In other parts of the county, you'll also find iconic rock clubs, including 18 and under clubs, intimate concert venues, and a host of opportunities to get out and party.
