To keep up with the constantly changing San Diego party scene as well as find the perfect fit for you, you can use the Discotech app – to search nightclub events by the specific dates you’ll be in town, and then buy tickets, sign up for guest lists, or even reserve tables if you’re feeling super-fancy. The app event info refreshes daily, pulling from various San Diego entertainment online resources including the official websites of the clubs themselves, so it’s always current, accurate, and in the know.

A couple things of note: 1) America’s Finest City is different from other cities in that the nightclub scene is practically dead from Sundays to Wednesdays. 2) Related to that, Thursday nights are much more lively in San Diego than they are in most other cities, owing to San Diego’s large population of twentysomething locals and transplants. After perusing the app to get ideas on where to go, don’t hesitate to ask a local friend – or reach out to our help line – for further guidance.

Side Bar SD to Close for Renovations

After an impressive, nearly 15-year run in the Gaslamp, Side Bar will temporarily suspend its industry nights, DJ sessions, and bottle service-fueled dance parties. The well-established bar, lounge, and nightclub is closing this Sunday, June 24 for a top-to-bottom renovation by RMD Group, which also operates the adjacent Ciro’s Pizzeria and Rustic Root and Volcano Rabbit in the Gaslamp

The remodel will reportedly take the venue in a more upscale and elevated direction. When it reopens this fall, Side Bar will feature a craft-ier cocktail menu as well as offer food service. A countdown to Sunday’s closing date starts tonight with its very last industry night, follow by the final Latin-inspired Stilo Thursday. Demolition Night is scheduled for Friday, with memorabilia and other pieces of the bar up for grabs, and an over-the-top “champagne war” blowout will go down on Saturday.
