Gaslamp Quarter

Built in the late 19th century, the Gaslamp Quarter is a 16½ block historical neighborhood, filled with streets lined with wrought-iron street lamps, trees, and brick sidewalks. Along with its many historic buildings, the Gaslamp has the city’s highest concentration of bars, nightclubs, and restaurants. Many of the bars double as restaurants as well, making the whole district the prime nightspot in San Diego.

The Gaslamp Quarter is also home to many events and festivals, including Mardi Gras in the Gaslamp, Street Scene Music Festival, the San Diego Comic-Con, Taste of Gaslamp, and ShamROCK, a St. Patrick's Day event. PETCO Park, home of the San Diego Padres is located one block away in downtown San Diego's East Village. Croce's Restaurant & Jazz Bar, named after famous singer Jim Croce, is also located in the Quarter.

For a break from the bustling streets of the Gaslamp Quarter, head over to Third Avenue. This is the historic heart of San Diego’s Chinese community. Below Third Avenue, on the eastern border of the Gaslamp is Westfield Horton Plaza Center, which has five stories of shopping for you to indulge in.

Practical Info

The Gaslamp Quarter is in downtown San Diego and extends from Broadway to Harbor Drive, and from 4th to 6th Avenue. The district is accessible by bus and the San Diego Trolley. If you’re traveling with kids, it’s best to visit this area during the day.
