Kettner Exchange Rooftop Bar San Diego

San Diego Bay
Progressive American
Year round


Trendy venue offering two levels of indoor/outdoor drinking and dining.

Great in design and atmosphere, Kettner Exchange is a trendy and chic rooftop bar and restaurant, located in the Little Italy part of downton San Diego.

Boasting two levels of outdoor and indoor drinking and eating, the views are not the most panoramic, but there are nice vistas to San Diego Bay to be found. And since the rooftop is located near the airport, you can see and hear the airplanes flying over the terrace from a short distance during the afternoon and early evenings.

But you should definitely not visit Kettner Exchange just to catch planes, but more so to enjoy great bites and tasty drinks. The food menu is a wide-range of new American dishes, prepared by the famous Executive Chef Brian Redzikowski and made perfect to share.

Add a cocktail list that is equally impressive, with hand-crafted and creative creations, and you can sense that the The Kettner Exchange rooftop bar will keep most taste-buds happy.

Usually open nightly and for Sunday brunch, the crowd and ambience at Kettner rooftop is beautiful and trendy, but managing to also be fun and friendly. Decorated with a mix of dining tables, lounge sofas and a large size bar, the Kettner terrace also has private cabanas available for rent.

Great San Diego rooftop bar for some pre-dinner cocktails, or even for a full night out on weekends, enjoying the vibrant ambience and live DJs.
