Gaslamp district

As the West Coast’s premier entertainment district, guests can immerse themselves in our rich Victorian architecture and history, dine with world-renowned chefs, and dance the night away at nationally-recognized nightlife venues. Tucked tightly into 16 ½ blocks, the Gaslamp Quarter is a walkable urban playground located in Downtown San Diego just 2 blocks from Lucky D’s Hostel, Petco Park, and Horton Plaza. And getting here is as easy as a Southern California breeze. The Gaslamp area is accessible via the freeway and several trolley and bus lines. We invite you to explore the district for yourself and find out what makes it unforgettable!


The Gaslamp Quarter in San Diego is a delectable foodie’s paradise. Dining choices are plenty with options for al fresco on the sidewalks, sky high at a rooftop lounge, or in an intimate and ornately designed restaurant.
