La Jolla night life has been suffering since the sudden closing of Jack’s La Jolla in 2008
La Jolla night life has been suffering horribly since the sudden closing of Jack’s La Jolla in 2008. Being the biggest night club in La Jolla, Jack’s brought business to surrounding venues as well as themselves.
In 2009 there was a very expensive failed attempt by Bistro 101 to start up a new night club venue in La Jolla. For starters the owners confused the public and themselves with all the names; Bistro 101, French 101 or Bakery 101. We still don’t know what to call it. The public was left wondering are you a nightclub, bakery or a restaurant ? No one knew. It didn’t matter to the Russian discotech party thou, they will pretty much bring the party to any venue that lets them. Bistro 101 = FAIL, enough said.
Now the only real night club venue left in La Jolla is Prospect Bar and Lounge. Prospect Bar has seen a small increase of business but not as big as originally anticipated with the closing of Jack’s. Prospect has updated their menu to capture the lunch and dinner crowds and is now booking live music in La Jolla every day of the week.
There is a sign of coming change in the lonely windows of Jacks. A public notice has been posted for the ownership change of the liquor license. The property has been purchased by M&N Entertainment, the same group that owns OnBroadway in San Diego’s Gaslamp district.
Perhaps this is precisely what La Jolla needs, a large venue to put the jewel back on the map of San Diego’s night life scene. SanDiegoHouseMusic.com will be watching closely for developments and will keep you informed as we find out more about the future of night life in La Jolla.
