Look at any calendar of events in San Diego and you’ll be sure to see museum events, new gallery openings, and art walks galore. America’s Finest City has quickly turned in to a mecca for art which is one reason for the San Diego Convention Center expansion plans; the expansion will provide increased exhibit space and public art displays for residents and visitors to enjoy.
But what’s better than strolling through a museum?Strolling through a museum with a glass of wine or a cocktail! San Diego is home to a myriad of events that pair art with alcohol.
One popular event, Culture and Cocktails, at the San Diego Museum of Arts in Balboa Park, is the place see and be seen. While a DJ spins top tunes, guests mix and mingle amongst fine art, occasionally topping off their cocktail at one of multiple bars strewn about the museum. The next event is on November 7, so mark your calendars and purchase your tickets in advance before they sell out.
Another treasure trove for art enthusiasts are all the museums near Little Italy. While not all the museums offer a hosted bar, 98 Bottles in Little Italy is happy to pour you a glass of Pinot while you paint. Just bring along your pre-purchased ticket to their “Painting and Vino” event, which takes place every Tuesday at 6 pm, and the venue will provide all the supplies and an art expert to help you recreate your own beautiful masterpiece.
