Located in nearby Point Loma’s Liberty Station, The LOMA Club is a local favorite — a restaurant/golf course/live-music venue with ample outdoor seating for guests to kick back and soak up the fun. The club features live music outdoors every weekend, so you can fill your ears with sound while you enjoy their fantastic dinner and drinks menu. Upcoming events include performances by Sweet Myths, Shakedown String Band, and Mark Fisher.

Of course, we have to direct music lovers to San Diego’s premier concert venue, Humphreys Concerts by the Bay. Located at our Shelter Island sister hotel Humphreys Half Moon Inn, this fantastic outdoor space is welcoming some of the country’s biggest performers to its stage in 2022. Tickets are currently on sale for shows by acts like Colbie Callait, They Might Be Giants, Celtic Thunder, Mat Kearney, and more. This venue is beloved among locals for it’s exquisite outdoor views with an adjacent marina. Look to your left, to see tons of local boat owners who float over, tie their boats and rafts together and enjoy the live tunes from the water, year-round as well!

Music lovers have made this fantastic three-story space a local favorite — and for good reason. Large enough to host epic shows but intimate enough to provide a close-up experience, Music Box will leave even the most experienced audiophile satisfied. On-site bar and food options mean you can make an evening of it, too. Upcoming shows at Music Box include Mason Jennings, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and Mother Mother. You can also find fun tribute nights for bands like Abba, Daft Punk, and more throughout the year!

The SHOUT! House (6.8 miles away)

Recently voted San Diego’s best music venue, The SHOUT! House offers a unique entertainment experience. Two virtuoso piano players (backed by a full band) alternate between “dueling” and accompanying each other on rock, pop, and soul hits from the 1950s to yesterday. Expect fantastic showmanship, high energy, a dash of comedy, and jaw-dropping musicianship. It’s a top-of-the-lungs sing-along celebration every night. A favorite for bachelorette parties, we warn those of you who are shy- they love to pick people out of the crowd to poke fun at, call onstage, and generally rope into their comedy act and performance. We recommend ordering their famous big beers to prep yourself at this local joint.
