Head to this thriving neighborhood, adjacent to Downtown San Diego, and discover a place radiating with Mexican-American, Chicano, and LatinX culture in it's art, delicious dining, fun shops and local residents. This cross-border cultural hub is one of San Diego's hidden treasures.
San Diego’s beating heart of Latin-American and Mexican heritage and culture can be found in Barrio Logan, a one of a kind neighborhood just minutes from downtown. The culture can be seen, heard, tasted, and felt throughout the community by anyone who visits.
At the heart of Barrio Logan is the historic Chicano Park, filled with more than 80 murals, the largest such concentration of Chicano art in the world. The artworks adorn the soaring pillars of the Coronado Bridge, and include subjects ranging from pre-Columbian to contemporary. The park and its murals represent the resistance the community mounted in the 70s to stop construction and ensure the creation of a promised park. Not only a magnificent outdoor art gallery that’s a permanent part of the city, Chicano Park is a National Historic Landmark.
Barrio Logan is a place where traditional Mexican flavors inspire all aspects of food and drink. At Latino-owned Border X Brewing, San Diego’s craft beer culture melds with Mexican flavors with beers like the Horchata Golden Stout and the Blood Saison, which is inspired by the traditional Mexican drink Jamaica. The coffee shop Por Vida is also well worth a stop, with an Horchata Cold Brew and spicy lemonades.
Taco lovers may want to drop everything and hit up Salud! right this minute. Their tacos and other antojitos pay homage to the street food of Northern Mexico, but with plenty of modern twists. To wit: breakfast tacos and mushroom veggie tacos. This happening taco joint is making waves for its traditional, yet unique spins on classic taco recipes. Don't miss out on the shrimp tacos — or if you're feeling up to it, make it a surf and turf taco by adding carne asada to the mix.
In this bustling hub of art and artists, several formerly vacant warehouses have found new lives after being converted into cool, creative spaces. Bread and Salt epitomizes this trend of revitalization. Once a commercial bakery, this edifice is now the site of art shows drawing crowds.
