It’s no secret that some of the biggest partiers are the ladies and gents behind the bar of your favorite San Diego clubs.
Those of us who work some variation of the 9-5 routine rely on weekends for Tequila-fueled party release (example here). Yep, we know where you were last weekend, there’s no hiding from our sneaky nightlife photographers …
On the flip side, locals who work in the nightlife and dining industries as bartenders, dancers and waitresses are working hard Friday and Saturday nights in San Diego, forcing their party to move to a new time slot. From Bar West in Pacific Beach to Side Bar and 207 in Gaslamp, the best clubs open their doors on traditionally off-nights to give these industry pros a place to party.
Because San Diego is such a young and entertainment-centric city, most “industry” nights gather together a rowdy group of locals, college students, and legit industry workers. We don’t discriminate, we just want to party.
Add your industry night party to our San Diego event calendar!
