Guide To San Diego
San Diego by night is just as hot as San Diego by day. The city's bars, clubs and lounges cater to every  style of music and dance. Whether you want to rock out to up-and-coming alternative bands or take in the melodies of a chamber orchestra, you'll always find a reason to stay up late in San Diego .

Downtown is home to San Diego 's best dance clubs. Stay at the Hilton Gaslamp Quarter or the Best Western Bayside Inn if you're planning to spend a lot of late nights on the dance floor. Looking for an upscale place that keeps the party going until dawn? Head to the E Street Alley, San Diego 's signature posh dance club since 1994. In E Street's disco, DJs spin hip-hop and techno beats in front of fiber-optic walls of color-changing cloth. The adjacent Nue Room features a granite bar and ‘80s and ‘90s pop music. Stylish twenty-somethings are E Street's number one clientele. While there is no strict dress code, dress to impress to hit the dance floor as fast as possible.

Celebrate San Diego 's Hispanic heritage at Café Sevilla. Locals often describe Café Sevilla as the closest you can get to Spain without a plane ticket – the nightclub is devoted to all things Latin and has a young European vibe. Flamenco dancers start the evening off, captivating their audience and coaxing men to join in their sensual dance. Around 9:30 , a DJ takes over and the young and hip get down to Latin-inspired disco, house and hip-hop. Visit Café Sevilla on Tuesday through Thrusday nights for Club Salsa, where you can take a Salsa lesson and then practice your new moves all night long.

San Diego 's bars and lounges come in all shapes and sizes and you're bound to find one that suits your style perfectly. Thrusters Lounge, near the Ocean Park Inn , caters to the diverse music tastes of the city's residents and visitors. Thrusters features different themes many nights of the week. On Sundays, San Diego 's premier jazz group Jazz without a Net fills the club with its smooth melodies. On Tuesdays, Thrusters hosts “LeFunkParlorDeluxe,” a night of pumping electronic beats and wall-to-wall dancing. The small club has a down-to-earth feel and attracts a young crowd. Stop by after a day at the beach for a fun and relaxing night.

Canes Bar & Grill, located steps away from the Bahia Resort , is a tropical style bar that plays host to big-name bands. Punk and rock groups popular with college students often visit Canes and draw crowds of up to a thousand. The bar's drinks borrow their names from famous hurricanes and many times rival their inspirations in strength. Grab a drink and enjoy it on Canes' rooftop deck, where you can look out onto the ocean and groove to the sounds of the bands rocking out below.

The U.S. Grant Hotel is home to one of the city's classiest bars, a favorite among 30-plus businessmen and women. With furniture rendered in rich, dark wood, a billiards table and a large-screen television, the bar is the perfect place to relax in style. On weekday evenings, order a drink from the mahogany bar and chill out to the sounds of San Diego 's favorite local Latin and jazz bands.

If cutting edge music is what you're into, Galoka, near the Empress Hotel , is a bar not to be missed. From improvisational jazz to alternative hip-hop, Galoka features beats a little fresher than those of mainstream music. Early in the week, Galoka hosts Pass the Peas, a night of open-mic poetry and music. On Fridays and Saturdays, Galoka turns up the volume and puts on dance parties geared towards the trendy twenty-something crowd.

For straight-up jazz, head to Elario's Sky Lounge, next to the Hotel La Jolla at the Shores . Bright colors, dark carved wood and potted plants give the Lounge a lively and sophisticated feel. Elario's features different bands most nights of the week, including the Judy Chamberlain Jazz Trio, which performs on Fridays and Saturdays to a packed house. Arrive just before sunset to take in one of the best views of San Diego 's shores while listening to the notes of the band peal out across the Lounge.

The On Broadway Event Center, located near the Ramada Inn & Suites Gaslamp , is the jewel of the city's bar scene. Floored in Italian marble and topped off with a thirty foot high gold ceiling, the venue is adorned with a 35-foot-long red bar, 72-inch television monitors and a bevy of colored lights. Order one of On Broadway's top-notch martinis and grab a seat on the plush white couches of the nightclub's Ultra Lounge, where DJs spin urban beats against a backdrop of modern artworks.

San Diego offers a wide range of cultural entertainment to enjoy at night. Located near the Radisson Harbor View , the San Diego Opera has long been one of the staples of the city's nightlife arts scene. Founded in 1950, the Opera has been hosting five productions for each January-May season for over fifty years. The Opera features famous works like “The Magic Flute” and “Rigoletto” as well as original productions such as “Cosi fan tutte,” a drama set in early twentieth century San Diego. The La Jolla Music Society, close to the Hyatt Regency La Jolla , has been setting the standard in California classical music performance for the past sixty years. The Music Society boasts five major concert series each year including a much celebrated piano series. If you're visiting during the summer months, be sure to check out La Jolla Music Society's SummerFest, a three week long chamber music festival that features local musicians and composers as well as famous guests.

San Diego offers so many options for night time activities that it's almost impossible to stay in after the sun sets. Whether you want to dance ‘till dawn or kick back with a martini, in San Diego , you'll always find a reason to make the night last just a little bit longer.
