Have lunch while overlooking Balboa Park, sip sunset cocktails while perched 40 stories up, or opt for a fine dining experience paired with an unparalleled gaze over the cityscape. DiscoverSD reveals five of their favorite San Diego venues with a view.
Top of the Hyatt – Downtown
Cozy up in a candle-lit banquette and peer through the floor-to-ceiling windows which offer a majestic view of the Coronado Bridge, Seaport Village, San Diego Harbor, and a panoramic display of the downtown cityscape and skyline. Located forty stories atop the Manchester Grand Hyatt, the tallest waterfront hotel on the West Coast, Top of the Hyatt is a local-favorite spot for great food and drinks paired with breathtaking views.
ALTITUDE Sky Lounge – Downtown
Located twenty-two stories atop the San Diego Marriott Gaslamp Quarter, ALTITUDE Sky Lounge offers a hip and modern setting to take in the rich downtown splendor. From up here, enjoy a bird's eye view of Petco Park on game night. There isn't a cover, but you will find yourself paying for that awesome view in drink prices.
Bertrand at Mister A’s – Banker’s Hill
Equipped with an outdoor wrap-around balcony that gazes out over San Diego Harbor while flirting with gliding jets from the nearby airport, Mister A’s serves the beautiful skyline for your viewing pleasure. Located twelve stories atop a skyscraper in Banker’s Hill, this restaurant is equally highly-regarded for panoramic views and fine dining.
Clay’s – La Jolla
One of the highest points near the shore, Clay’s is an eleventh floor penthouse atop Hotel La Jolla. The fresh, energetic atmosphere reflects the vibrant originality of Executive Chef Clay Bordon’s cuisine. During the day, Clay’s floor-to-ceiling windows offer panoramic views of the sparkling La Jolla shores. By evening, guests opt for window-side seating. While you enjoy the view, relax to live music at Clay’s Sunday through Thursday nights.
Top of the Park – Banker’s Hill
Top of the Park, the seventh floor penthouse at Park Manor Suites, mixes historic charm with luxury allure, while providing guests with sweeping views of Balboa Park, San Diego Harbor, and the downtown cityscape. During the day, head outside for the signature “lunch with a view” on the spacious patio, and stay warm inside the classic Hall of Mirrors dining room by night.
