Kimpton Karma + IHG® Rewards Club
rooftop bar

Socializing in high style in downtown San Diego

Located in Kimpton Solamar Hotel ● 619-531-8744

San Diego’s most renowned rooftop bar

We know you’re always on the hunt for the next hottest thing, but we also understand that you’re not into navigating the pretentious air that often accompanies such exclusive “it” spots. That’s why we’ve created a destination that’s intimate and “VIP”— in the friendliest and most accessible way possible. (No red ropes here, thank you very much.)

Simply ride the private elevator up to the rooftop, where a lush oasis beckons. The scene evolves from tranquil by day to sultry by night. Here the bar scene buzzes, a cosmopolitan mix of locals and guests mingling with artisan cocktails in hand. Nearby, hungry guests nibble on casual small plates like rosemary French fries and house-made charcuterie. If we close our eyes, we swear can already feel the ocean breeze, smell the salty sea and hear that fire pit a-cracklin’. On this rooftop, no doubt about it—life is good.

Enjoy outdoor games, cozy up by the fire pits, and unwind in one of our private cabanas (rented daily), or pool side chaise lounge rentals (available to be rented daily). Amenities include pool access, fresh towels, ice-cold water, and other cool summer treats. Celebrating something during the week? Book a weekday cabana here. Or, if you're looking for a weekend fiesta, book your cabana here.

On October 27th, join us at Upper East Bar for our Brews & Boos Halloween All You Can Drink Beer Festival. Learn More + Buy Tickets Here
