In the happening Gaslamp Quarter, the best place to hit happy hour is ALTITUDE Sky Lounge, an elite rooftop bar above the Marriott hotel, 22 stories up. Among the lounge's standout features are a glass-wall balcony, a roaring fire pit and plush seating.
However, nothing beats the panoramic views of Coronado Island, Point Loma and the Coronado Bridge. Even better, if you time it right, you can catch the Padres playing a game at Petco Park, located directly beneath the bar. At night, the silhouette of San Diego's skyline is more defined, and looks particularly magnificent against the sun setting over the harbor.
While taking in views of the city, guests can choose from a selection of wine, beer and cocktails. Food offerings include flatbreads, sandwiches and burgers. ALTITUDE Sky Lounge is also available for private dining and special events, with the options of catering services or customized menus.
