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.
