El Camino

  • 2400 India Street, San Diego, CA 92101 | Directions

On Wednesday nights, this Mexican bar and restaurant in Little Italy transform into a Latin-jazz speakeasy at the behest of legendary trumpeter Gilbert Castellanos. Stand-in blowers sip cocktails by the bar, waiting for their nod to wail. Patrons shuffle feet on the dance floor or sit at candlelit tables inscribed with tarot archetypes and pick at organic vegetarian dishes served with house salsas and cheese sauce. Out back, smokers pause their chit-chat as airplanes roar into Lindbergh Field; pitchers of sangria make the rounds. Stop by for an evening with some of San Diego’s jazz greats.
