Never been to SD. From reviewing different sources I came up with the following list of places to try. The ones with the dash marks seemed like the "best" places, places I probably shouldn't miss but in truth I have no idea. I'll be staying near the Marina/Gaslamp area but I will likely have a car. I'd appreciate your comments.

Solace and the Moonlight Lounge
Yu Me Ya
