Tour San Diego’s Hottest Nightlife in the Gaslamp Quarter

Join me on a tour of the Gaslamp Quarter, home of San Diego’s hottest nightlife! With a wink and a nod to the area’s tawdry beginnings, we begin at Stingaree – voted San Diego’s best nightclub 4 years in a row.  Then we’ll check out  Southern California’s highest rooftop bar, Altitude Sky Lounge at the San Diego Marriott Gaslamp Quarter before we travel underground to the hidden wonderland of Vin de Syrah. It definitely was a great day at work!
