The Gaslamp Quarter has much to offer: nightlife, fine dining mixed right in with fabulous places to satisfy the late night munchies, and more watering holes than you can count! But what about the Gaslamp Quarter during the day?
Even if it’s usually your favorite night spot, we recommend checking it out in the daylight hours for a whole different experience of the Gaslamp. As the weather starts getting more beautiful and everyone wants to spend as much time as possible outside, hit the streets of the 16 ½ blocks that comprise the Gaslamp Quarter and really soak up San Diego’s history–as well as the sunshine.
Many of the buildings you hardly notice as you walk through the buzzing city at night are more obviously historic in the light of day. Bonus: Lunch prices are often better for the same great food!
One historic building is the Keating Building, built in 1890 by George and Fanny Keating, it is now home to Croce’s Restaurant and Jazz Bar. Though they are known for their live music, they also have fabulous food and will even have a brunch special for Easter with jazz to accompany your dining experience. Or try stopping into some of the Gaslamp Quarter’s newest additions: Cremalose, Bolillo Tortas, and Bite M.e. Trust us, you’ll be glad you did!
There are over 80 restaurants that serve lunch in the Gaslamp Quarter though, so get a map, check out Gaslamp.org, or just wander until you find something that calls to your taste buds!
