Top Hotel Bars in La Jolla

Do you enjoy a glass of refined red wine? Maybe you'd rather relax in a ritzy lounge? Here are the La Jolla hotels that have a bustling bar scene worth seeing, whether you like modern, historic, or high class.

The Grand Colonial Hotel is now celebrating its 100th year in La Jolla and it has been around this long for good reason. The bar at their award-winning restaurant, Nine Ten, is a great place to catch the local socialites enjoying a barrel aged cocktail after a long day at work.

The Grill & Bar at The Lodge at Torrey Pines is the perfect place to wrap up a day of golfing or shopping. This five diamond hotel balances class and elegance with comfort and camaraderie. The Grill has partnered with Green Flash Brewing Co to host a quarterly Craft Beer Dinner where Chef Daniel Boiling guides you through various beer and food pairings. Keep a lookout throughout the year for their upcoming events, most often tickets can be purchased online.

The Manhattan of La Jolla at the Empress Hotel is a swanky dim lit wine lounge that lights up with live music and offers an old New York atmosphere. Happy Hour is the time to go if you're seeking half off award-winning appetizers and discounted cocktails.

La Valencia is the spot to check out come winter. Unfortunately the well-known Whaling Bar has closed and a new bar is opening in its place. La Sala at La Valencia is still a wonderful place to go for live music, great happy hour and breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. The soon-to-open Cafe la Rue will be a whimsical European inspired outdoor area with a central bar and sidewalk seating (as of 2013).

If you decide to venture just south of La Jolla the happy hour at Bahia Hotel's Tangier Bar is not to be missed. With a bay breeze and tropical decor this bar attracts locals and tourists alike for their daily 3pm to 6pm happy hour deals. If you're feeling adventurous you can jump on the hotel's Bahia Belle Boat Cruise for a cocktail or two while a Mississippi-style sternwheeler guides you around the bay to the sweet sound of blues tunes.
