The Nolen rooftop bar (also known as The Nolen San Diego) is a lovely and modern rooftop bar in San Diego, with spectacular city views, from the Coronado Bridge to Point Loma. Always mentioned as one of the best rooftop bars San Diego has to offer, the terrace gives you bird's-eye views of the San Diego skyline from all seats.

Located 14 floors up in the Gaslamp Quarter of downtown San Diego, The Nolen rooftop bar specializes in stunning and well-crafted cocktails. A true paradise for cocktail-lovers, the selections ranges from timeless classics to Nolen Originals, all made with the finest spirits.

And although firstly a cocktail bar, there is no need to go hungry as the rooftop bar also offers a set of delicious bar bites.

Beautiful in design, with lots of architectural features and modern details, the open-air Nolen terrace offers both lounge and dining seating, large and cosy fire-pits and a cool outdoor bar.

Sophisticated and swanky lounge in ambience, The Nolen is a perfect spot for a classy and fun night out with a group of friends. Visit between 4-6pm for happy hour and to catch the amazing sunset views, and stay to enjoy the lovely vibe. Or come Sunday's for some tasty rooftop brunch.

Even though the terrace is usually not over-crowded, it is well worth making reservations before you visit to secure one of the lounge spots. And note that The Nolen dress code is smart casual, so dress up a bit to feel at home with the trendy crowd.

The Nolen Rooftop Bar, one of our favorite rooftop bars in the world.
