Dress Code: No tennis shoes!
If you are going downtown at night in your own car, bring at least $20 to pay for a spot, if there are any left. My favorite thing to do was to park in Coronado (island next to SD) and take a taxi. Costs $10 to $15, no parking drama, and with 3 or 4 people, it's worth it.
The gaslamp is by far, my favorite nighttime spot. It is more sophisticated than most night spots, but not stuffy. You can walk the entire quarter easily. Even if you don't know what you want to eat or drink, just keep walking, you'll see it. I can't think of a type of cuisine that isn't there. If you want specific restaurant reviews check out my other tips.
Dress Code: It's not formal, but it's not the beach either. No shorts and flip-flops.
A Must Visit place is Gaslamp Quarter located in Downtown next to Horton plaza (great for shopping).
You can choose from a variety of restaurants, bars and nightclubs.
I just prefer take a walk with a hot cafe and enjoy the experience, you can find a starbucks cafe in every block,.
Dress Code: There are No special dress required but just common sense, if you plan a dinner in an italian restaurant is not a good idea jeans and tennis, just use common sense and if you feel comfortable that what really matter.
San Diego varies from the multi-millionaires, to the beach kids who do nothing but surf, skate, ride dirtbikes, and snowboard. Huge range, depends on you the traveler. Write if any questions, be glad to help.
Dress Code: see above
Gaslamp Quarter Historic District.
Back in the Old West, Wyatt Earp once ran three gambling halls here, but there were many more brothels. By the 1970s, this area was so run down, the City started a preservation campaign to restore it. Today, this restored Victorian quarter houses 60 bars, nightclubs, restaurants, theaters, boutiques and galleries. (That's progress for you!)
When visiting San Diego you have to decide what type of nightlife you are looking for. If you want more of a casual, laid back environment to party then head to the beach. But if you are looking for something a little more upscale then you should head Down Town, otherwise known as the Gaslamp District. Here are my suggestions for nightlife Down Town.
When visiting San Diego there are tons of bars and clubs to enjoy. There are four main areas to go when in the 'San Diego' area....the college area, Down Town, Old Town, and all the beach areas like Ocean, Mission, and Pacific Beach. I'm going to tell you all about the nightlife Down Town, but to find places in Old Town look under restaurants. To find places in the beach area look on my Pacific Beach page.
What a beautiful skyline...
