The best art isn’t always behind closed doors hanging on a gallery wall in. Sometimes the art IS the wall, and the door and roof for that matter. San Diego’s architectural history is not to be missed and is easily enjoyed during numerous walking tours throughout San Diego’s lovely summer weather. See some of the finest examples of early 20th century Arts and Crafts style in the Banker’s Hill neighborhood, or head up to La Jolla to see the awesome collaboration of science and space at the 1960’s masterpiece, the Salk Institute. And when you want to take a rest inside, make sure to stop by the Museum of Art (a building of Spanish Revival beauty itself) to see the genius of 18th century Roman architect and printmaker, Giambattista Piranesi.
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!
