Just when we think we’ve uncovered every design savvy, insta-worthy spot around, we somehow stumble across something new. For anyone living in San Diego (or up for a little road trip), you need to know about The Pendry. It’s a sophisticated hotel with a chic collection of dining, shopping, meeting and wellness sites within it.
Meticulously blending the ease of Mid Century Modern design with traditional touches of the luxury hotel stay, The Pendry is a refreshing hotspot that a few members of The Venue Report team had to visit to get the firsthand report on this long awaited opening.
Mid Century Modern: For Today & Always
Mid Century Modern design is hard to escape today - Every new restaurant, shop and hotel inevitably feature some version of Mid Century flair. The Pendry has successfully taken this admittedly overdone motif and breathed new life into it making it fresh, unique, and completely it’s own. Credit goes to the designers and architects keen eye for what’s now and what’s everlasting, striking the perfect balance of a modern meets traditional experience.
Get your Pinterest boards ready, The Pendry is here to inspire with with fiddle leaf fig trees, brass fixtures, architecturally pleasing corners, rich hues and textures, and art pieces with history. Embodying the San Diego lifestyle with an heir of timelessness, let the friendly staff fill you in on everything you want to know about this hotel’s experience.
A Foodie Haven
Foodies, rejoice. There are, wait for it, SIX places for dining and drinking here that are each a must-try if you are serious about getting the full experience of this hotel. Each spot has a unique personality and purpose depending on your mood. Looking for a full service dinner? Head to Lionfish for fresh seafood. Want to grab a beer and watch the game? Your jam is going to be Nason’s Beer Hall.
Other foodie faves include Fifth & Rose that takes the standard hotel bar and elevates it to a cool post-work or weekend day drinking destination. You’ll find breezy windows, a wrap around bar, and plenty of Instagram ready guests to surround yourself with. Provisional delivers luxe cafeteria vibes with a small marketplace of curated goods that puts Anthropologie to shame.
To get your drink on, head over to either Oxford Social Club or The Pool House. Both provide upscale cocktail lounges that are perfect for a night on the town with your girls or a sophisticated date night.
A Trend Setter’s Dream
Situated in the heart of The Gaslamp, steps from Petco Park and the entire nightlife scene of this neighborhood, it’s no surprise that The Pendry is going to be huge. Whether you plan on visiting for a craft cocktail filled evening or an all-in luxury stay, The Pendry is one destination you need to visit before the crowds arrive.
