There are sassy, fancy and party pants, and you’ll want to slip into any of your favorite pair to wear to the best places in San Diego to throw any private party. Ginger’s, La Piñata, Osetra, The Rail and The West Root Tavern are the go-to venues you’ll want to invite your kick-back crew, the board members or even both to, because at each spot there’s a little something for everybody.



If you prefer the trendy part of town, indulge at Ginger’s on the hottest corner of the Gaslamp. The underground edgy spot combines sophistication with style and a touch of something deliciously dirty for any private soirée. The atmosphere is cozy, warmly lit and the bar has an array of cocktails. Sip your favorite martini to live music Tuesday-Friday 9 p.m. to midnight. The venue is below the lovely barleymash, so feel free to order up bites from Chef Kevin Templeton’s bourbon-influenced menu!

La Piñata

This spot in Old Town seats up to 250 amigos with fiesta vibes where margaritas, Mexican food and music are served fresh and upbeat. The vibrant option of indoor or outdoor space is a plus as beautiful mosaic walls and colorful tapestry surround it. Bring your appetite and they’ll bring the traditional treats and tequila.

Osetra California Modern Seafood & Steak

Opt for this Gaslamp Quarter location that offers a swanky and chic ambiance for a group dining capacity of 350 with five different rooms to fit your fancy. Each private room presents either a private or semi exclusive feel in different sections of the restaurant. The menu combines a mix of modern flavors and food including prime steaks, fish, Australian- and Japanese-inspired dishes and beef with a full bar. Enjoy the sophistication and upscale of Osetra as valet is offered for guests—yes!

904 Fifth Ave
San Diego, CA 92101



A local, neighborhood spot where the SoCal style is served fresh, offering inspired food from the turf to the surf and libation choices flow freely with not one, but two full bars! Choose from handcrafted cocktails or beer offerings from renowned brewers and enjoy some sports action while you’re at it. You may also enjoy the breezy, newly built, outdoor patio, featuring fire pits so the gang can even gather ‘round on cool evenings with their brews.

The Rail

The Rail has a modern and rainbow riveting flare, standing as the oldest known LGBT bar in the heart of Hillcrest. The inviting atmosphere coupled with its best DJs, artists and dancers offers casual fun with good food and friends. Reserve your private event early to ensure availability or you’ll be holding your specialty cocktail elsewhere. Cheers!
