Altitude Sky Lounge

Altitude
You’re hovering 22 stories above the San Diego skyline, drinking in the sweeping curve of the Coronado Bridge, the distant wisp of Catalina Island, the prime-time view of home plate in Petco Park.

 

You’re at Altitude. Considered one of the best open-air bars in the world, the Gaslamp district nightspot is also a perfect venue for watching the local stickball team, better known as the Padres.

 

“You can hear the crack of the bat, the ball hitting the mitt,” says Jim Durbin, General Manager of the San Diego Marriott Gaslamp Quarter. “You can watch it, you can hear it, you can feel it. You’ve got God’s view of the game.”

 

And of the stars. When the stadium is dark, you can snuggle around the giant fire pit, drinking signature mojitos and touching the sky. An all-night light show behind the bar follows the crowd’s mood, from laid-back-and-easy to ready-to-rock, the aurora borealis on a rooftop.
A full menu of beer on tap, hand-muddled cocktails, and specialty martinis rounds out the party. But don’t expect any blender drinks.

 

“We don’t want blender noise to detract from the atmosphere,” Durbin says.

 

Or from your special occasion. Bottle service – on anything from bubbly to Bombay Sapphire – lets you feel like a VIP.

 

“The energy is incredible,” Durbin says. “It’s just one of the places you have to go at night.”
