Urban nest and foodie haven in San Diego's historic Gaslamp Quarter, with six food and drink venues
Presiding over San Diego’s entertainment epicenter, this 317-room, 12-story hotel faces tough competition from its surrounding bar and restaurant scene—which is precisely why the first property in the Pendry portfolio, one that caters to the jet-setting millennial, decided to introduce a formidable drinking and dining program of its own. From contemporary seafood and sushi at Lionfish, steered by a chef that Eater singled out as one of the country’s up-and-coming “young guns,” to a Vittoria Coffee espresso bar (don’t miss their decadent breakfast pizza, topped with lardons, béchamel, and an over-easy egg), each trailblazing dining venue doesn't play it safe. The nightlife options are just as alluring: the hotel’s watering hole serves up retro cocktails on tables gilded with fresh roses while its buzzy basement nightclub is a whimsical spin on a Gatsby-era lounge. When you’re totally spent, snooze in your calming digs, whose ocean-accented palettes and chaise lounges help you recharge for another day of debauchery.
In the Area
Downtown San Diego is somewhat of a unicorn: that rare, pedestrian-friendly sliver of California. You’re in the center of the Gaslamp Quarter, a 16-and-a-half-block historical district lined with classic Victorians and skyscrapers (read: rooftop bars galore) that's also within biking distance of Little Italy, the former home for the city’s prolific tuna fishing industry that's now brimming with wineries, craft breweries, and patio cafés. Further afield are Petco Park and the eclectic North Park neighborhood, known for its edgy collection of art galleries. If it’s the city’s reputable surf you’re seeking, you’re just minutes from some of the area’s best beaches, including Pacific and Mission.
