Dizzy's/Musicians Union Hall

This is the fourth longterm locale for Dizzy's in 16 years for operator Chuck Perrin, who started hosting shows in 2000 at the Culy Trucking Warehouse by Petco Park before moving to the San Diego Wine & Culinary Center in 2007 and then to San Diego Jet Ski Rental on Mission Bay Drive in 2012.

Regardless of where he sets up shop, Perrin believes the idea transcends the location. “Dizzy’s is a state of mind. It’s amazing that it’s lasted all of these years, considering it’s not a business. I don’t own anything — I’ve never had a regular place or paid regular rent. I just set up as a pure collective — the shows belong to the musicians — they set the parameters. All I do is facilitate it and parcel out the receipts at the end of the night. It’s kind of an illusion, really.”

Dizzy's events are held at the Musician's Association Union building in Arias Hall, which has a 200-person capacity.
