Living it Up at San Diego's Casinos

Live shows and unique experiences

San Diego County's casinos offer a whirlwind of entertainment that goes way beyond the slots and gaming tables. Whether you're in the mood for stand-up comedy, a mind-bending magic show, live rock-n-roll or DJs by the pool, an array of exciting experiences can be found at our many casinos.

Sycuan Casino

At Sycuan Live & Up Close, an intimate 452-seat setting, guests can enjoy live music shows and laugh-filled evenings with comic wits like George Lopez, Sinbad and Margaret Cho. Explore their Concert Packages through the hotel which guarantee premium seats within the first 5 rows to headliner concerts at Sycuan Live & Up Close.

Harrah's Southern California

A playground of fun, Harrah's has a 2200-seat event center for live concerts and comedy shows with big name acts, along with Vegas-style performances like magic shows by modern-day wizards like Penn & Teller. During winter there's live jazz in the lounges while summers means Latin Thursdays, Dive After Dark pool parties with top DJS and Reggae Sundays by the pool.

Viejas Casino and Resort

This luxury casino and resort is home to Southern California's largest outdoor ice rink where skaters can glide under the stars from late October through the end of January and catch flicks like Frozen or Home Alone while on the ice. Viejas' Lobby Bar serves up craft cocktails, live music and your favorite sports on giant flatscreens, while their Summers Nights at the Park means high-energy live bands and outdoor blockbuster movie screenings. There's also year-round music at the V Lounge, a great spot to dance the night away on Fridays and Saturdays.

The spacious Starlight Amphitheater hosts talent like The Beach Boys and Peter Frampton, along with comedy tours. At Infinity, guests can enjoy free tribute bands playing Beatles or Van Halen tunes, and a fun club scene on Saturday nights. Oenophiles should venture underground into the Wine Cava for live music - think jazz and R&B - and flights and bottles from around the world.
