Awesome Place! Will be back... 5/24/2010

Altitude is awesome! It overlooks Padres Stadium and is in a great location. Drinks, music, decor is all great...and best of all there is no cover! See you again up there... Pros: NO COVER Cons: Long Line more

Awesome views 1/3/2010

One of the best places to enjoy meeting friends for a drink after work or watching the Padres game. The roof top looks directly into the stadium. One of my favorite bars in the Gaslamp district. Pros: Great Place to watch a baseball game more

Go with friends 6/11/2009

Nice bar with beautiful views. But seriously, there are so many d-bags don't even think about trying to meet anyone here. But a nice place to chill with some friends when downtown. more

AMAZING views 5/30/2009

we came here randomly on a wednesday night and I was pleasantly surpirsed. I've been living in San Diego for a little over a year, so I'm still exploring bars and cool spots. This is my favorite bar downtown. The crowd is great- good mix of people and not overly pretentious. You can wear a dress of you can wear jeans and a casual T. There were older people there who I believe were in town for a convention, and it looked as though they were enjoying themselves too. Music was great. Pros: best view of coronado island, point loma, and downtown Cons: mojitos are a little pricey more

Great View 3/25/2009

Great place to take out-of-town guests since the city view is amazing and you look down into PETCO park. They tend to keep 90% of the seating "reserved" for bottle service customers and these seats remain unused most nights. The bar closes slightly after 1 and they usher all patrons out very soon after that so be mindful of the time and NEVER get a last call drink or you will be most likely leaving it. Pros: Great city view, open air bar, ambiance Cons: Early last call, overpriced drinks, limited seating more

Great Atmosphere 3/3/2009

Great place with amazing view of the city and a fun atmosphere. DJ music to dance or listen to - depending on the mood - great drinks with prices comparable to the rest of the gaslamp district. Try it!!! more

The best bar for expensive drinks, no food, and terrible service 11/17/2008

For a trendy bar, it definitely has the attitude. This bar will need to change its tune if it wants to survive in the trendy downtown area. It does have the view, but that's about it. The staff was unfriendly, the security was just shuffling people around like cattle, and you need to pay extra if you want to sit in the good seats. I never saw a drink menu so I guess you need to know what you want. And if you want food, forget it, you need to order room service. Once we left, it was like a weight off our shoulders. Pros: view Cons: drink price, staff more

Are you kdding me? - Most unfriendly bar there is. 11/11/2008

This has got to be the most unfriendly bar in San Diego. I would rather eat glass then go back to this bar. I was with a group of 4 guys just drinking a few beers when this bouncer comes up and asks us to move to a different table. Really? They wanted the table for other guests. We argued and told them we were leaving in 10 minutes anyway. They told us to leave or we would be "arrested" for trespassing. We did leave, but I have the satisfaction of at least warning people about this. Its amazing this bar is in business. Pros: nothing Cons: unfriendly, staff, price, attitude more

Great spot! 9/23/2008

I am not sure what the other people on here are taling about. I was there two nights in a row and had a great time. The security was great and the bartenders top notch. The made a great martini. Of course the prices were a little high, it is ROOFTOP BAR, IN A HOTEL, DOWNTOWN. However, it was worth it. The view was great and we got some great pictures. I would definately recommend this place. Pros: View more

Altitude Bar, should be called Attitude Bar 9/4/2008

The most overrated bar in the US...really. The 'superb' San Diego view is not even that good unless you are watching baseball or interested in looking into the surrounding apartments. The obnoxious bouncers on the front door are jobsworths, who are constantly pushing through customers as though on government business, and the barmen are entirely disinterested in any form of hospitality...This supposedly 'top' bar, does not even offer a drinks menu, so customers are left to guess available drinks and their prices. Furthermore there is insufficient seating, and the DJ could do with a little education beyond Jurassic 5's greatest hits. Not worth the two block walk. Tower 23, Pacific Beach - a much better bet! more

Great view of Game - We Got overcharged. 8/27/2008

I went with a group of friends to have a few drinks. We all thought the bill was rather expensive giving what we ordered. After looking at the bill we found out we got overcharged $20. My friend called multiple times but they denied him a refund. He told me he spoke to Jeff Burges the dir of operations and the name of the manger is Jim Durbin. They told him they investigated and we were wrong. Investigated? How crazy is that. It's $20 out of hundreds spent. I guess the Marriot motto is 'the customer is always wrong". The place is way to expensive anyway. Not impressed. Pros: waitress was cute Cons: price, price, price. Not very friendly. more

Not recommended in my opinion. 8/26/2008

For a high-end hotel there is little to like about this bar. Can't get food up there. Have to order room service. The beer was warm and expensive. The sitting area is for VIP only. You need to fight to get a table. If you want a nice view, go to the Hyatt. If you want a nice bar to relax and talk with friends do not go here. Just can't recommend. Pros: view Cons: Bring lots of cash. warm beer. more

i loved altitude! 7/7/2008

I absolutely LOVED altitude and will be going back again very soon. It was my first time there and I was VERY impressed. I went 4th of july weekend and was expecting it to be way over packed. But it was perfect. The view is spectacular, the drinks were a little expensive but that is typical for down town. The music was awesome and the bartender was very friendly... even though he had a long line he still took time to introduce himself to myself and my date! 5 stars for altitude!! more

Terrible. Pretentious. Expensive. Rude. (But the view is great) 6/3/2008

This is my first review and its not a good one. Obviously I did not like the place. I went with 3 other friends and we all found it very pricey, overrated and the staff was very rude. With so many choices in downtown San Diego, they really should care about their customers. To top it off, when my buddy checked his credit card a the next day, they added $20 to the bill. After calling them and bitching, they removed this charge. I bet they get away with that a lot of the time. Pros: View Cons: Pricey, rude workers, check your bill. more

A great view! 4/17/2008

I have lived in San Diego for 5 years and just went there a couple weekends ago! The view is great, the drinks ARE NOT! Too expensive and the bartender didn't even make my drink right. If you don't know what is in something, ASK! Don't just throw whatever in it! Great view so I say go just order something easy for their bartenders! more

Great time! 12/16/2007

The first time I went to Altitude I was in town for the Dodgers/Padres series. It was alot of fun. We met so many people from LA and from San Diego. The drinks are a little pricey but if your staying at the hotel I suggest you drink before in your room and go after. Also if staying in the hotel you get to cut in front of everyone in line. The crowd was a little on the older side but still great fun. Pros: The view, the music and atmosphere Cons: pricey drinks more

great view, expensive drinks 3/14/2007

i tried to go here last saturday but they open at 5pm. And when i tried to go there after Stingaree at 1am, they were closed too. I've been here before, maybe a year ago, and it's a great place to hangout. a little small, expensive drinks, but worth the trip because of the view. Pros: view, view, view Cons: expensive drinks more

Great view 11/15/2006

Drinks are, in fact, pricey, but the view is spectacular. We actually caught the final inning of a Padres game. more

View Galore 10/29/2006

Great views from the top of the Marriott in downtown. You can actually watch a baseball game from up here and be able to tell what is happening on the field. Drinks can be expensive but go for happy hour which lasts till 9 o'clock and has ketel, margarita and beer discounts. Pros: Great Views Cons: Expensive Drinks if not happy hour more

Editorial

  • In Short
    Altitude may be the only Gaslamp nightclub where the view is more attractive than the beautiful people that mingle there. A trendy cross-pollination of local scenesters and hotel guests frequent this rooftop bar, located on the 22nd floor of the Gaslamp Marriott. A spacious, vine-covered lounge area crowds quickly, sofas surround San Diego's largest firepit, and the dance floor varies in activity based on the music.
