Amazing show! We went to see La Voix - so so funny! Food was superb, staff attentive and warm! If you are in San Diego make sure you pay this place a visit and if there is a show on go see it!

Good place to get a drink. When we got there, there was live country music. There is a small terrace that you can get your drink there and it's allowed to smoke, very weird in California. There service was very friendly.
