While You’re In San Diego: The Gaslamp Quarter

Add Your Comments

One of San Diego’s most famous attractions is the historic Gaslamp Quarter, which has been restored into an entertainment and night life hub. The Gaslamp Quarter is right down the street from the San Diego Convention Center, where HostingCon Global 2015 will be held, and the Marriot Marquis and Marina San Diego, the convention’s official hotel.

Because of the close proximity, it is likely that anyone attending the full conference, or planning on any evening networking, will be there at some point or other. Several establishments in the Gaslamp Quarter have already been mentioned in the HostingCon blog, but the area deserves its own run-down.




The Gaslamp Quarter is a historical site by any standard. Today it’s characterized by the culture of the modern San Diego. You know food culture is happening in San Diego, and brewing and sampling beer is big here, so finding 200 bars, restaurants, and music venues in a rectangle small enough to walk around stands to reason. Top-rated night spots include The Shout House, with its duelling pianos, and the speakeasy Prohibition.

The architecture and art life of the city are also represented, with attractions like the Chuck Jones gallery, which is stuffed with original Looney Tunes classics. The shopping is also renowned, so even if galleries aren’t your thing, and the sun hasn’t quite reached the yard-arm, the Gaslamp Quarter is where to be.

There will definitely be networking events, both official and unofficial, held in the Gaslamp Quarter. All the food and drink, music and art, history and shopping will be steps from HostingCon, and an added bonus to the world’s premier cloud and hosting conference.
