Popular Bars in Downtown San Diego
San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter is the city’s ultimate destination for walkable nightlife at all price ranges. From local dives to classy lounges, the area offers popular bars to suit any mood. Stay at the Pacific Inn hotel near Gaslamp Quarter and enjoy easy access to these popular downtown San Diego bars:
- Cafe Sevilla – This trendy tapas bar and restaurant offers late night dining, formal flamenco dinner shows, and free live Spanish music in the bar area. The place gets packed with chatty folks simply enjoying a few beers and small snack plates. Impromptu flamenco dances by buzzed amateurs are a common occurrence, and the nightclub downstairs hosts nonstop Latin American music and dancing for the regulars and visitors.
- Jolt’n Joe’s – Without the restrictions of a velvet rope, this multi-purpose bar and general fun zone brings in a diverse crowd. As the drink specials flow, most of the customers choose to enjoy their spirits while participating in additional activities such as trivia, karaoke, dancing, pool, or a vicious game of ping pong.
- ALTITUDE Sky Lounge – Drinks are pricey, but there is no cover at this swanky rooftop bar above the San Diego Marriott in Gaslamp Quarter. There is space to dance, but ALTITUDE is more of a “see and be seen” chill-out spot with remarkable views of the marina and Petco Park.
- The Field – Everyone loves a classic Irish pub, and The Field fits the bill. Sports fans cheer on their favorite competitors during special showings of events, some of which may have an extra cover charge. Live Irish music, whether it’s traditional or punk, complete the atmosphere.
