You won't be disappointed when you decide to ring in the New Year in San Diego. Classy yet affordable, neighborhoods like our city's own Gaslamp Quarter allow celebrators to craft a San Diego-style celebration, ranging from something a little low-key to something more upscale.
Whet your appetite with one of the area's many fine dining restaurants, including Marble Room and Grant Grill. One of the neighborhood's newest additions, Marble Room offers a delicious six-course meal, showcasing executive chef Bill Sauer's California-style tapas. For exclusive champagne pairings, the Grant Grill is a must. Gourmet lovers will enjoy this upscale restaurant's classic mahogany furnishings, delicious prime meat, and fresh Pacific seafood.
Of course, if you're looking to mix a little fun with your meal, make sure to try Croce's. This Gaslamp staple features some of the smoothest Jazz in town — not to mention a delicious menu of American-style pairings. In fact, on New Year's Eve, guests can enjoy the likes of Shep Meyers and Archie and the Archtones while munching on their tasty dinner.
Plus, Gaslamp's prime location offers you access to a number of nightclubs, bars, and after-hour entertainment as well. Stop by the Stingaree New Year's Eve Extravaganza for delicious hors d'oeuvres and bubbling champagne while dancing to the stylings of DJ Crooked. Or for a little more mystery, hit up Deco's New Year's Eve Masquerade Ball, featuring multiple dance floors and delightful masked costumes.
So whether you're looking for a glam occasion or something a little more low-key, San Diego offers a number of New Year's celebrations for locals and visitors alike. You and your sweetie will enjoy ringing in 2014 no matter which exciting prospect you decide upon and when you stay at the Bristol Hotel, every celebration in downtown San Diego is just minutes away.
