3 Best Places to See and Be Seen

Part of our 50 finest things happening in San Diego's food scene.
Rein at Rancho Valencia

With its sunset-colored stucco walls and Spanish-style mosaic tile, the elevated poolside bar at Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa is a serene and elegant spot for sipping handcrafted cocktails and savoring lobster tacos, ahi sashimi "poke-style" and seafood Cobb salad. During Rosé Sundays (every Sunday, through Sept. 17), Rein offers flowing rosé, crudité and a special menu worthy of the elevated summer scene. 5921 Valencia Circle, Rancho Santa Fe, 858.756.1123

Now a La Jolla staple after several successful years on the scene, The Lot is much more than just date-night perfection with its high-end movie theater. The dining section of the venue is a power-dinner hangout in its own right, with a stellar outdoor patio and sleek indoor bar. 7611 Fay Ave., La Jolla, 858.777.0069

Not only is Pendry San Diego downtown's buzziest new hotel, from amenities to fine dining at Lionfish, but it also has Oxford Social Club, a new playground for the late-night set. Here, you'll find a sophisticated addition to downtown's club scene, with plush seating, cool fixtures and craft cocktails. Past entertainment has included Dynamiq, DJ Spider and Decon. Be sure to book bottle service in advance. 435 Fifth Ave., downtown, 619.738.7040
