Downtown After Sundown

During the day San Diego's lifestyle might revolve around the beaches and outdoor recreation, but after dark the city comes alive in sizzling nightclubs where live music and hot DJs turn up the volume on a crowd that knows how to party. The epicenter of San Diego's nightlife scene is the Downtown, Gaslamp Quarter where 16 walkable blocks feature 10+ nightclubs - each with there own unique vibe. From pop, rock, EM and hip hop, to good old fashioned country, you're sure to find a spot that will keep you out of your seat and on the dance floor. 

For more on San Diego's nightlife scene, watch Guide to the Good Stuff videos from DJ Ayla Simone and DJ Schoeny as they take you on a tour of what's hot and happening in San Diego after dark.
