SoCal Hour featuring craft beer and cocktails at Hotel Solamar

We stay pretty chill throughout the day. But at 5 o'clock, we really unwind. At Kimpton Hotels there has been a long standing tradition of evening wine hour, but at Hotel Solamar, we've switched it up and are serving craft beer and seasonal cocktails, like sangria and pisco palomas, every day from 5-6pm, in our living room lobby. It's a chance to shake off the stress of a long flight, relax after a day of exploring or gear up for a night on the town. If wine is still more your style, just let us know, we'll be happy to get you a glass. This is hospitality, SoCal style.

Taste some of SoCal's finest micro brews, including beers from local breweries that can't be found in your local liquor store. San Diego is home to 70-plus operating brewhouses and brewery-owned tasting rooms. Common beers to be featured at our social hour include those from Lost Abbey, one of the older breweries in town who's brew master Tomme Author is regarded as one of the bests mixers in the world, and St. Archer. If you don't get your fill here, both breweries have tasting rooms that can be found approximately 30 minutes north of Hotel Solamar. Local Reps from the breweries can also occasionally be found at our SoCal hour to educate you on San Diego's vibrant beer scene.
