6 & 1/2 Unique Concert Venues

End on a high note

From a symphony concert hall to a seaside rock venue, these unique stages can provide an inspirational setting for your keynote speeches or after-hours musical event.

San Diego may be the backdrop for your next meeting or event, but these concert venues can really be the star of the show.

Copley Symphony Hall

The grand concert hall is home to the San Diego Symphony and is centrally located in the heart of downtown's financial and theater district. The venue showcases its historic architecture and elevates the ultimate music experience with new technology. With state-of-the-art digital sound and lighting, and seating up to 2,200 people, the theater is perfect for an A-list keynote speaker or award show.

House of Blues San Diego

The legendary music venue in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter provides an unparalleled meeting experience with more than 30,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space set in an inspiring old Southern Delta Juke Joint.

Spreckels Organ Theater

The Spreckels Organ is the largest outdoor organ in the world with 4,518 pipes comprising 73 ranks. With seating for more than 2,400 guests, this outdoor music venue, in the heart of historic Balboa Park, provides a dramatic backdrop for a concert or evening presentation under a star-lit San Diego sky.

Belly Up

Rockin' since 1974, Belly Up has received national accolades from the likes of Rolling Stone Magazine "one of the hottest live music clubs on the West Coast," and have been voted "San Diego's Best Live Music Venue" over and over. Belly Up brings the best in new, up-and-coming artists as well as established legends in genres ranging from alternative rock, reggae, and hip-hop to blues, folk, jazz, Latin & more!

Petco Park

Hit a grand slam at Petco Park - and we're not talking baseball. From The Rolling Stones to Taylor Swift to Ringo Starr - some of the biggest names in music have played the infield for private and public concerts. If you're looking to set the bar high, rent the entire ballpark for your event. There's no doubt this modern ballpark will be a hit for any large-scale event.

Humphreys Concerts By The Bay

A short ride from the North Embarcadero, Humphreys Concerts by the Bay has been hosting music events for more than 31 years in San Diego on the scenic peninsula known as Shelter Island. The outdoor venue can be set for theater or banquet-style meetings and offers spectacular sunset views over the harbor.

Empress Hotel Piano Suite

OK. This isn't quite a large-scale music venue for your next keynote address, but the "piano suite" at the newly renovated Empress Hotel in picturesque downtown La Jolla is perfect for an intimate executive meetup, or an after-hours soirée for your top client.
