This September, San Diego Restaurant Week will celebrate local by showcasing the fresh and delicious ingredients that our region is known for with Eight Days of Dining!
San Diego’s low-lit lounges are where you’ll find gorgeous crowds, sexy beats and cool cocktails. Less frenetic than traditional clubs, these venues offer the opportunity for conversation while still satisfying the need to see and be seen.
JRDN offers another chic alternative to the standard beach bar—the modern space draws a well-dressed crowd nightly. Located at San Diego’s beachfront boutique hotel, Tower23, JRDN offers an indoor/outdoor bar perched atop the cliffs above Pacific Beach.
Hip-hop beats and house music swirling out the door signal the Side Bar, another Gaslamp Quarter favorite, where hipsters gather for hot music, cool cocktails and a laid-back, retro lounge atmosphere.
Located on the fourth floor of Kimpton’s Hotel Solamar in downtown San Diego, LOUNGEsix is a rooftop oasis where sexy singles sip fresh fruit cocktails and lounge by a sparkling pool and roaring fire pits.
Situated on the ground floor of the Palomar San Diego, the Saltbox Lounge celebrates the art of food and cocktail in sleek style. Immersed in the city’s vibrant cocktail culture, Saltbox raises the bar with its gastro-lounge approach, featuring fresh farm-to-table ingredients. Saltbox Lounge has a casual yet sexy vibe that invites guests to stake out a corner for themselves and indulge in classic Kimpton style.
At the Andaz San Diego, choose between plush couches or glass tabletops as you sample one of your favorite wines or cocktails. Sip, savor, and share at Ivy Wine Bar’s innovative WineStations, where you can enjoy 88 wines by the taste, glass or flight. This lounge is the perfect place to start your evening – with easy transitions downstairs to the Ivy Nightclub or up to the Ivy Rooftop.
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 cheeses and meats. Guests can dance to the music of San Diego’s most eclectic DJs or the soothing rhythms of live jazz, or enjoy their beverage in the privacy of a plush booth.
Bar West in Pacific Beach turns up the sophistication with luscious libations, swanky décor and bottle service, but maintains a surfer’s sensibility with an onsite valet for beach cruisers.

I passed through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, through the sea of swirly twirly gum drops, and then I walked over the Coronado Bridge, all to get to you for an afternoon filled with beer, wine, food, holiday cheer, and of course elves!
The best part is that your affinity for elf culture supports my favorite charity Cancer For College and gives cancer survivors the opportunity to realize their dreams of attending college through scholarships. I hope you'll join us for this year's Carols and Barrels and spread holiday cheer by singing loud for all to hear. Son-of-a-nutcracker, we are going to have a good time!
