Rich’s is San Diego’s largest and most popular gay nightclub. Due to Covid-19 we have set up an all outdoor lounge next to the club with socially distant booths and cabanas. We have partnered with LeStats to bring you a summer food menu or try one of our new refreshing summer cocktails. We are a 21 up establishment.

We have booths and cabanas for up to 8 guests. Space for larger groups and extended reservations times are available upon request.

Full meals are a requirement to order alcohol.

Great vibes, great drinks. Wish Rich's did this with their outdoors long ago! Will definitely be back. Tons of seating options and the fact that they take Reservations is awesome.

The atmosphere and feel is very good especially if you’re with a group of friends. The service though was not the best, mediocre at best. After 20 min of sitting at our table we finally had to flag down an employee to find out who our server was. We didn’t place our first drink till 25 min into our reservation, there’s a 2 hour time limit. We would basically have to flag down our server anytime we needed anything. Unknown to us our table time had expired and and one of the front host came up a bit upset we were still at our table and snapped at us that our time was up and they needed table. I did tell him that would be happy to give up our table but we haven’t seen our server in about 30 minutes, not received our check nor did we know our time was up. We were all excited to be there and have some fun too bad the service ruined our experience there.

My husbands birthday . We where having a nice time but then we were abruptly handed our bill for almost $200 and asked to leave within 10 mins. We understood there was a time limit but after spending that kind of money (for pub food served in take boxes) and being forces to leave so fast was just rude. It took eveything i had not to stiff the server on the tip but i didnt want to be like that.

Keep tabs on your drinks as day drinking can easily rack up! Drinks are a bit overpriced tbh 💁🏻‍♂️

I had went for a 13yr anniversary sip and small bite and asked for comfortable seating!! stated that on my reservations. And got placed on a hard chair with no back at some bar which wasn’t a bar . The host stayed when there is a free table he would relocate me . Never did !!!! And at that point there was 7 unoccupied tables ... no follow lied by the host on my ANNIVERSARY... I would have spent a lot of money on my special day.... Womp womp if you are going for a celebration

Was a great experience considering CoVId. Felt safe while still being able to have fun. Of the bars in the area, I’d say they do the best job of keeping people safe while still maintaining an upbeat vibe. Good service and drinks. Food was just appetizers so it was what it was hahah
