New Year's Eve in the Gaslamp Quarter

There’s no better place than the Gaslamp to ring in the New Year in San Diego. This year, Gaslamp’s bars, restaurants and clubs are going all out to start 2018 in the most fabulous way. Not sure where you want to be when the clock strikes midnight? Here are some ideas:

ALTITUDE Sky Lounge at Marriott San Diego Gaslamp Quarter is celebrating from the bottom all the way to the top—literally. From drinks at Latitude Lounge and DJs in the lobby to a sushi bar, carving stations and a chocolate fountain at the ALTITUDE Sky Lounge, it’s a stellar spot to be for the countdown.

Sip on champagne and enjoy live music from local entertainer Ryan Brolliar at the Horton Grand Hotel.

DJs KID FUNK and Taylor Michael will keep the energy up all night long at the electric, eclectic Florent Restaurant & Lounge. Make your dinner reservations now and get grandfathered into the NYE party. 

Searsucker has a special four-course menu prepared by Executive Chef Chris Gerwig. With options like octopus aguachile, filet potato croquette and citrus mousse with coconut spongecake, you can say good-bye to 2017 in the most delectable way.

Each of Tipsy Crow’s three floors brings its own unique experience. Get VIP access and enjoy hosted appetizers and Veuve Clicquot while dancing the night away.

Henry’s Pub will be rolling with DJ Yodah and Antonio Aguilera, featuring Jimmy BoyKin and DJ Jimmy Boy.

The New Year’s Eve menu at Asti Ristorante gamberoni torinese (large shrimp wrapped in provolone and pancetta), lobster bisque, filet mignon and tomahawk bone-in rib-eye—but don’t forget to save room for some chocolate lava cake or raspberry cheesecake before midnight.

Gaslamp Tavern and Quad Ale House are joining forces: two floors, two DJs, plenty of drink specials, a NYE photo booth and midnight confetti group will make for an unforgettable night. 

Have a roaring good time at GARAGE Kitchen + Bar as you ring in the New Year Great Gatsby-style. The four-course prix fixe menu includes a champagne toast, souvenir glass and party favors—because a little party never killed nobody.

The Shout! House is going old school Hollywood glam as their legendary dueling pianos go at it non-stop…probably well past midnight.

Ring in 2018 with dazzling flamenco dancers at Cafe Sevilla, then nurse your hangover at their New Year’s Day brunch, featuring specialty brunch drinks and bottomless mimosas. 

The New Year’s Eve menu at Blue Point Coastal Cuisine offers a truly indulgent end to 2017. Savor seared sea bass or filet mignon and finish things off with crème brûlée or passion fruit cheesecake.

Get your Gaslamp NYE Passport and get access to three unique, yet in-sync venues. Celebrate in true Cuban style at Havana 1920 with a three-piece Latin jazz band. Enjoy Mexican classics at El Chingon, and dance the night away with local blues legend Fuzzy Rankins at Prohibition, San Diego’s most elusive speakeasy.

Still figuring out your New Year’s Eve plans? Not anymore. If these options aren’t enough for you, visit for even more special events and can’t-miss parties happening all over the Gaslamp Quarter.
