While visiting San Diego my wife and I found a gem of a bar and restaurant in the J Six, located at 616 J Street in the Gaslamp Quarter. The decor is contemporary, the food is organic and local produce. The food is delicious. We had roasted Maine scallops with chorizo, corn, onions, basil, cilantro, and fingerling potatoes. My wife...

Jbar is the rooftop bar at the Solamar Hotel in San Diego. We've visited several times, and each time the good and bad points have remained consistent, so I feel confident giving you this review. The bar area sits next to a cabana/pool area that is obviously a poor knockoff of the W Hotels chain. The Jbar pool area is... More
