Listen to jazz by the fire or indulge in Afternoon Tea and soak in the Old European glamour.

We love serving you, our neighbors and our San Diego community. Your health and safety, along with the wellbeing of our team, are of paramount importance to us. And so, in compliance with state ordinance, Lobby Lounge is shutting its doors temporarily. This certainly isn’t goodbye, it’s farewell for now. We’ll be back as soon as we can, and look forward to welcoming each of you in the near future. Stay safe!

If a relaxed evening of conversation and culture by the fire is on your mind, the lobby lounge beckons. Like a Venetian salon, the space is alluringly dark and inviting. Picture stylish European décor in maroons, golds and mahogany, candlelit café tables and antique books lining the nearby library shelves. The lounge was designed as a place to linger — for unwinding over a quiet drink and intimate dinner parties.

In the afternoon, splurge on traditional British Afternoon Tea with a pretty array of scones and jam, fluffy petite pastries and dainty finger sandwiches. In the evening, order a light supper of lobster tacos and listen to live jazz or blues. Share fresh oysters at the marble bar, washed down with seasonal craft cocktails. Perhaps a Margarita Blossom or basil-and-coconut Chaturanga?
