San Diego Tourist Guide

Gaslamp Quarter Pubs, Bars & Sports Bars

The Gaslamp District is loaded with a wide variety of pubs, bars, bar/restaurants and sports bars. The "Quarter" in San Diego CA is a hub of nightlife, particularly considering its close proximity to PetCo Park, the San Diego Convention Center and the Harbor area including the Embarcadero. The Gaslamp District is a 16-block area that is convenient for "pub-hopping". It's best to get "the party" started before 8:00 PM since some clubs have cover charges as the night gets later.
