San Diego is home to several world famous dinner clubs.  The 30's and 40's were the golden age of dinner clubs.  Elegant ladies and tough guys enjoyed good food and great music.  Several local clubs have hearkened back to these days.  

Croce's is dedicated to  the memory of the late singer-songwriter Jim Croce.  His wife, Ingrid,  opened the club in his honor in 1985 and offers award winning American Cuisine, a Wine Spectator Wine List, and live music nightly. Croce's is the heart of the Gaslamp, and the center of fine dining and entertainment in San Diego.

Anthology SD Dinner Club bills top food and top acts year round.  The restaurant opened in June 07 and has since booked Arturo Sandoval, Herb Alpert, and other greats.  Wynton Marsalis heard about the great acoustics and atmosphere and changed his tour plans to play at the club.

Of course, big name players Hard Rock Cafe and House of Blues bring acts big and small to town.  And other bars like The Strip Club have live music.  But you wouldn't want to be wearing a nice suit to either of these places.
