Nominated for: BEST Trendy Bar
The owners and staff at El Dorado Cocktail Lounge are extremely excited to open the doors for the San Diego community on Monday, November 24, 2008 at 5:00pm. Since February 2nd of this year, this has been a work in progress. During that time we transformed a formerly run-down, dilapidated bar into a lounge that is comfortable and attractive, yet still maintains the character and history of a bar that has existed since the 1940's. The theme is classic Dive-Lounge with influences from our upbringing in the Pacific Northwest, and the rugged frontier of the American gold rush. As our namesake, the fabled city of gold is our overarching metaphor... We have traveled long and hard to realize El Dorado's existence. We have spent 5 years trying to get a bar off the ground. We are extremely honored to present the final product, and share our experiences with you. We hope you enjoy El Dorado Cocktail Lounge, and we eagerly await your arrival!
