San Diego's historic Gaslamp Quarter is located in downtown San Diego, featuring over 16 blocks of fine dining, shopping, and entertainment. With over 100 restaurant options, 100 shopping venues and 40 nightclubs and bars, there is something for everyone. Gaslamp Quarter is also home to many festivals and seasonal events, like Street Scene Music Festival, Mardi Gras, Taste of Gaslamp and more.
As the historic heart of downtown San Diego, the Gaslamp Quarter combines Victorian-charm with urban living to create a lively dining, entertainment, and shopping district. Once home to San Diego's "red light" district in the late 1800s, the area once held three gambling halls run by Wyatt Earp. In recent decades, revitalization efforts have spurred the growth of more than 100 restaurants, 40 bars and nightclubs and 100 retail shops, as well as theaters and art galleries.
