Gaslamp Quarter and Other Local Restaurants

Located in the heart of downtown San Diego, the Bristol Hotel sits just outside the city's bustling Gaslamp Quarter.
Rising from the 16 square-blocks are Victorian-era buildings and modern skyscrapers that stand side by side, housing more than 100 of the city's finest restaurants, Downtown San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter is a veritable playground, rich with cultural offerings. Dining options are plenty with options for al fresco on the sidewalks of this dynamic and cosmopolitan district, sky high at a rooftop lounge, or in an intimate and ornately designed restaurant.
Under the sparkling night sky on a cool California evening, the Gaslamp Quarter transforms into a sophisticated cosmopolitan playground as thousands come out in style for a night of fine dining, craft cocktails, live theatre, music and dancing. Make a reservation at any of the selected restaurants below, or find that special place for whatever mood or culinary affair you are looking for!
