San Diego's Premiere Cocktail Gathering

Bartender's Weekend, San Diego's Premiere Cocktail Gathering, is a networking event open to all service and hospitality professionals. Invitation required for all affiliate events and activities. Must be +21 to attend. Please drink responsibly.

A coalition of San Diego Industry Professionals dedicated to promoting the trade and providing growth opportunities for members of the Service Industry.

Bartender's Weekend Has Been Postponed


We didn't think that it would come to this, but in light of the current situation regarding Covid 19, and CA Governor Newsom's recent announcement that limits the gathering of groups larger than 250 people, we feel it is the right thing to do. The health and wellbeing of our friends and fellow hospitality professionals is the most important factor in this decision. Right now we are working with the Lafayette Hotel, our sponsors, and other partners who help to make Bartender's Weekend great, to find new dates for the event that work for everyone.

We will be in touch with more information in the coming days, but for now, please accept our apologies, and know that we tried everything in our power to make it work. Again, we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience, and hope that you will join us in San Diego once the new dates are announced.
