In 1974, the City of San Diego began renovating this historic downtown district, which is only 10 miles from Best Western Otay Valley. The Buel-Town Company Building and Pacific Hotel were the first to be given extreme makeovers. Six years later, the revitalized section was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. All visitors are welcomed to the Gaslamp Quarter by the iconic neon archway.
There is no shortage of restaurants. And the cuisine is incredibly varied. Chow down on authentic Italian at Chianti. Indulge in incredible Spanish dishes at Café Sevilla. Go the grass-fed burger route at Burger Lounge. Or opt for a delectable Greek fusion meal at Mezé. Of course, you won’t want miss out on the temping crepes and gelato at Chocolat Cremerie.
As busy as the Gaslamp Quarter is during the day, it’s even busier at night. If you’re into the hip-hop scene, you’ll want to make the scene at F6ix. DJ’s and live bands are the hallmark of Whiskey Girl, a long-standing nightclub. And for some of the biggest music performances around, you’ll want to check out FLUXX, an award-winning entertainment venue.
