Six Reasons San Diego is Better After Sundown This Summer

From soaking up sun-kissed beaches to donning superhero capes for Comic-Con International, summertime activities in San Diego draw visitors from around the world. Yet the summer season shines just as brightly after dark thanks to a burgeoning nightlife scene that is quickly making the city one of the west coast’s hottest nightlife destinations.

The following are six reasons why summer in San Diego gets even hotter after the sun sets.

  • Big name DJs perform in intimate venues: With the biggest names in electronic music making regular tour stops in San Diego, the clubs of downtown’s Gaslamp Quarter and East Village neighborhoods are some of the city’s most popular nighttime attractions. Recently, celebs like DJ Khaled, Steve Aoki, Tiësto and more have played San Diego’s club circuit.
  • Kesha headlines Pride 2016: San Diego’s annual LGBT Pride celebration is the second largest on the West Coast, including a parade on the morning of July 16, but things will really heat up when daylight fades and Kesha takes the stage as the headlining performer at theAnnual LGBT Pride Music Festival.
  • The downtown skyline looks totally different at night: With numerous rooftop bars, taking in the views of Petco Park, San Diego Bay, the Coronado Bridge and downtown neighborhoods are as much a part of the nightlife experience as a perfectly crafted cocktail, and both are in ready supply.
  • Visitors can sip cocktails next to a wall of golden skulls: The hidden, intimate speakeasy Noble Experiment is known as much for its creepy gilded décor as it is for its top notch cocktail program. Visitors can also head underground to an Alice in Wonderland-themed club experience at Vin de Syrah or dance with a robot at Parq Restaurant and Nightclub. The nightlife experience takes all forms in San Diego.
  • Even shipping containers make good nightlife venues in San Diego: A relative newcomer on San Diego’s nightlife scene, QUARTYARD transformed a dirt lot and a few shipping containers into one of the city’s hottest nightlife spots in just one year. The East Village venue features a craft beer and cocktail bar as well as regular live music on an intimate, outdoor stage. Past performers have included artists like Gorgon City, Bonobo and more.
  • Even museums get in on the nightlife action: After dark, San Diego museums become some of the hottest nightlife venues in town. Every third Thursday, the Museum of Contemporary Arts San Diego presents “Downtown after Sundown,” a night of visual and performing arts mixed with music, drink specials and more. Nearby in Balboa Park, several museums offer extended admission hours for “Park After Dark” during the summer months, and the San Diego Museum of Art’s “Culture and Cocktails” after-hours art event series is one of the hottest tickets for trendy locals.

Happiness is calling in downtown San Diego.
