Our Location: The Gaslamp Quarter
Today, the Gaslamp Quarter is Southern California’s premier dining, shopping and entertainment district, offering a truly eclectic blend of cuisines, culture, clubs and nightlife. The old-fashioned gas lamps glow along the wide brick walkways and line the streets where locals and visitors explore the hundreds of award winning restaurants, nightclubs, live theaters, art galleries, boutiques and hotels.
Club VIP is housed in a beautiful century old Victorian structure named after the famous gambler and lawman, Wyatt Earp, who ran a saloon and gambling hall called ‘The Oyster Bar’ during the 1880’s. Today, the historical Wyatt Earp aka Louis Bank of Commerce building stands tall and proud as home to Club VIP and also takes the honour of the most photographed building in the Gaslamp Quarter.

During OBEC’s opening phase, SIN orchestrated all the grand opening parties, including the Spooktacular Halloween Ball, sold out New Year’s Eve Ball and the sexy Xtravaganza Series. Today, On Broadway is internationally acclaimed as the pioneer for putting San Diego on the world map for best nightclubs.
Thereafter, SIN joined The Bitter End to revamp and revitalize its Special Events and Promotions department.

In 2006, she was awarded “Trailblazer of the Year” by the Mayor of San Diego for her leadership, contributions and significant role in shaping the Gaslamp Quarter into a world class entertainment destination.
