They can usually be hired separately or together with indoor spaces, which could be a perfect combination for your event! Some amazing options for celebrations include the Patio at La Mesa Wine Works and the Patio at il Sogno Italiano.

Rooftop venues are a dream location especially for engagement parties and weddings. You might want to consider the Altamar Rooftop at Pier South Resort or the Rooftop at La Jolla Cove Hotel & Suites for pristine ocean views.
    • Pools. If you ask us, a pool party is always a welcome prospect! There isn’t anything more relaxing than sipping on cocktails while lounging on an inflatable flamingo or dive-bombing into the water as your favourite beats are played through the speakers. If that sounds ideal, check out the Pool Area at Vineyard Hacienda!

  • Always start with your budget. It might not be the most pleasant and exciting part of planning an event, but it is fundamental! If you don’t figure out your limits in advance, you might end up in trouble. Whether you’re looking for a wallet-friendly party venue or a VIP experience, San Diego will have something that meets your needs, you just have to know what you’re looking for! Adjust the price slider on our website to find spots that fit your budget perfectly.
  • Take care of the party essentials. What are party essentials, you might ask? These can vary from event to event! Start by figuring out what is the most important to you: a good sound system? A projector to organize a film screening or a slideshow? A spacious dance floor? Many of these things can be selected in our smart search filters to narrow down your results and help you find the most appropriate venue!
  • Decorate the space. No one wants to party in a boring setting, so it’s crucial to breathe some life into the venue. Some spaces will have their own decorations, while others allow you to take care of it yourself, but whatever you do, make sure it’s fun, eye-catching, and on theme.
