Gaslamp Dining and Shows
The wide variety of cuisine offered in the quarter covers the globe. Everything from European cuisine (Italian Cucinas and Irish Pubs), Asian delectables (Thai, Chinese, and Japanese), Authentic Mexican favorites and, of course, American standards (steak houses).

Victorian Era Delights
San Diego's Gaslamp Victorian Era Dining San Diego's Gaslamp Chic Dining If Victorian era flare is your idea of fun then we suggest you stop by the Horton Grand Hotel for High Tea. The Victorian-era Horton Grand consists of two turn-of-the-century hotels that were moved from their original locations and reconstructed in a quiet corner of the Gaslamp Quarter.

High Tea is served Friday and Saturday afternoons in Ida Bailey's Restaurant, named after the Gaslamp Quarter's most famous madam. For $13.50, an order of High Tea will get you a sausage roll and Scotch egg, finger sandwiches, scones, chocolate truffles, petit fours, a glass of sherry and a choice of teas.

Especially popular with women, the tea provides a reason to dress up and socialize with girlfriends or, in the case of one dignified high society lady, her two granddaughters. A selection of fashionable hats hangs in a niche for female customers who want to accessorize their outfits. For men who desire an appropriate headpiece, unfortunately there is only one battered fishing hat.

Spanish Splash
If you are looking for Paella or other Spanish treats go to Cafe Sevilla, a Spanish restaurant offering three uniquely exciting dining experiences. Offered on the ground level, is fine dining in El Patio Andaluz and appetizers in the Tapas Bar.

If you would like to see a show, make reservations for the flamenco dinner show in the underground Club Sevilla. For $35, you have a choice of paella, sea bass, chicken breast or grilled New York steak, plus a salad and dessert. The paella is considered authentic and tasty.

Fabulous Flamenco
Traditional flamenco is one of the few performed acts where all the dance music and singing is improvised. The singer, guitarist and percussionist are usually accompanied by two female dancers steadily beating out a staccato rhythm with their feet and hands.

While one of the women may be coy and smiling; her older counterpart, may be stern and forceful. Both dancers are impressive in their interpretations of the haunting music.

After the dinner show, tables are carted away and the floor is converted to host a Latin-American dance club.

By the time you finish the Flamenco show at Cafe Sevilla, lines will have already formed in front of all the best nightspots, so it may be best to just stay at Sevilla's for Latin-American dancing. However, if you want to see the Gaslamp Quarter at night, take a stroll through the quarter live vicariously through the pleasure of the nightclub-goers and admire the contrast between the historical buildings and their contemporary tenants.
