Mission Fed ArtWalk is returning to the streets of Little Italy with an in-person event on Saturday, October 2 and Sunday, October 3.
City Heights represents the very best of San Diego with its diverse communities, authentic restaurants, bars and shops, and a commitment to bridging divides through art and engagement.
City Heights is rich in murals and public art, but one gallery can't be missed. The AjA Project's gallery space on Fairmont Avenue features photographs taken by immigrants – many of whom live in City Heights – who have left home countries ravaged by war and poverty. Fascinating stories of new generations of Americans are captured in the images displayed at the AjA Project's gallery and education center.
Gardens and farmers markets are a City Heights mainstay. Wander the aisles of City Height's famed weekly market (every Saturday) where the freshest and most diverse cultural ingredients can be found. For the plant lovers, or to impress the little ones in the group, pay City Farmers Nursery and Nate's Garden Grill a visit. There you will find beautiful plants, gifts, live music, rustic eats and an animal farm. Looking for an artful community gathering space where culture and the famed San Diego sun collide? Add Fair @ 44 to your list and stay for the food trucks—offering a wide range of cuisine—and of course, music, local art and more.
The mix of food options in City Heights is just as varied as the community itself. Home to San Diego's Little Saigon, City Heights features some of the best Vietnamese and Chinese cuisine in town. A must-visit is Minh Ky, arguably one of San Diego's best Asian restaurants. For the best Ethiopian food in San Diego, Red Sea is your hot spot, and for truly authentic bi-national fare, Super Cocina will have you wowed with their award-winning empanadas, enchiladas and mole.
Nightlife in City Heights is down-to-earth yet lively. Check out Tower Bar, an iconic dive bar with a fascinating history or The Black Cat Bar, another no-frills hangout that boasts two well-used pool tables, a stellar jukebox, and street tacos out front. And visitors looking to hear local music can find bands on stage most nights at the Soda Bar and the 'Til Two Club.
