Best Rooftop Bars + Rooftop Venues in San Diego - Starlight Ballroom #1
About 3 year(s) ago by MediaConnect
Just when other parts of the world are starting to shiver and stack on the layers, we are still running around in tank tops and flip flops. Yes, our beach-ready weather and sunny skies give us reason to smile, and so do the amazing rooftop venues in San Diego that pay homage to both bright afternoons and sparkling nights.
We are particularly biased toward rooftop locations because of our one-and-only retractable rooftop event and wedding venue right here at the Bristol Hotel.
So why not take a few minutes and let us show you what you’ve been missing: the San Diego sky!
