The downtown Gaslamp Quarter's historic buildings are among the few in the region with basements, a feature not frequently found in Southern California. These subterranean spaces have spurred the imaginations of nightclub developers who take the nightlife scene underground.
Ranging from intimate to expansive to trashy, these unique underground bars serve up local and internationally-known talent on the turntables in atmospheres that are only one flight below street level, but far removed from the real world.
At Café Sevilla, flamenco dancers keep audiences spellbound on Friday and Saturday nights. The crowd moves downstairs to the dance floor heating things up with spicy salsa moves as the DJ plays Latin disco and hip-hop music.
Vin de Syrah is part underground urban lounge and part Alice in Wonderland garden party. The wine list is extensive and the selections of whiskey, bourbon and beer are vast, paired with a menu of complimentary cheeses and meats. Dance to the music of San Diego's most eclectic DJs or the soothing rhythms of live jazz, or enjoy a beverage in the privacy of a plush booth.
At Thin, party-goers perch on polished steel bar stools and sip Cadillac margaritas in a futuristic setting. Located directly downstairs, at the Onyx Room, an energetic dance floor and swinging lounge can be found past the speakeasy-type entrance.
Step back into the 1920s speakeasy era with a visit to Prohibition. That is, if you can find it! This secret-entrance, password-only club keeps the mood subdued, the live jazz soothing, the cocktails irresistible and the attire upscale. House rules even admonish guests to "drink with an open mind" and "use your inside voice."
Located at F Street and Sixth Avenue, arrive at F6ix’s modest entrance and follow the staircase downstairs for the ultimate hip-hop experience. Once below street level, the movement and energy of F6ix comes alive with a spacious dance floor and live DJ, playing the best hip-hop hits from the past and present.
With three rooms of EDM and multiple dance floors, Bassmnt is a raw, edgy underground nightclub in downtown San Diego. Known for its high-energy atmosphere and top-notch production, the club also regularly brings in notable talent and DJs for live shows.
This is a one-of-a-kind experience and it's all underground in the Gaslamp Quarter. Meticulously decorated to replicate an All-American style trailer park, guests can enjoy sitting at the bar in a shopping cart bar stool, or lounging on artificial turf in a wheel burrow chair. Or, enjoy an authentic TV dinner on a TV stand while sitting on grandma's plastic covered sofa. Open late nights for those after-hours trailer parties.
