How would you describe the W San Diego experience?
From the moment the doors open, guests are greeted by a scene pulsing with the promise of exciting possibilities. Inspiration ignites in the newly imagined Living Room where vibrant colors collide and heat up the lounge-like atmosphere, featuring stylish accents, all as a backdrop to a vividly-lit bar and elevated DJ stage. As the original rooftop lounge in San Diego, Rooftop at W San Diego features a gorgeous restyle with beautiful wood flooring, bountiful lush seating, private bottle-service cabanas, and a brilliantly concepted bonfire sculpture to bring heat and blaze to the Rooftop ambiance. Also included in the recent relaunch is Kelvin restaurant, serving up a Latin-influenced menu that plays with creativity and temperature range in an equally imaginative atmosphere.

What is one important piece of advice you would like to share with couples in choosing a wedding venue?
When you walk into a venue, imagine the whole experience of your wedding day. Focus on the feeling that you want to give your guests and the mood of the event, rather than just seeing what is on the surface. We can make any dream come true.
