Welcome Home, Beautiful!

We are proud to be Southern California’s only 7-days-a-week, Nicky Award-Winning, women’s bar.
Since its conception in 2009, Gossip Grill has blossomed into a full patio bar and restaurant with a dance floor. As the San Diego sunsets, Gossip transforms into a dance nightclub for the ladies – don’t worry we also play nice with the boys and everything in between.

The perfect combination of ambiance and tastes will have you crawling back for more. Gossip is decked out with feminine-inspired art, fabulous chandeliers, and a foliage facade outdoor patio bar with two fire pits, that allows everyone to enjoy Hillcrest the way it was supposed to be enjoyed – outdoors. Pair that with modern American Comfort Food and you’ve got yourself a one-of-a-kind five-star women’s bar.

21+ after 2 pm on Sat & Sun. Hours are subject to change for minors during special events. Please call ahead to confirm possible age restrictions.

    We had a great time, visiting from Canada. San Diego is lucky to have the Gossip Grill!!! The food was wonderful, better than anything we had the 4 days prior. I hope it’s there for many years to come.

    Wonderful time! Great food, great service. Went for brunch and the huevos rancheros did not disappoint! They accommodated my gluten sensitivity incredibly well.

    Gossip Grill is the first place I have felt at home with the vibe presented. The food was great and service was prompt. The tri-tip sandwich was delicious and an ambiance of love was enveloping. I can’t reccomend Gossip Grill enough.

    Was fun night with my girls, our first time here. Sadly it rained on us, but the venue is cool and vibrant. Music was good, food we had three appetizers- carne asada fries, spinach dip, poke tune… they were all delicious! I would go again in day time and especially when it’s not raining! lol-
