Onyx is a distinguished cocktail lounge and nightclub in San Diego’s bustling Gaslamp quarter.
The basement venue has little signage, and the allure has been a “find us if you can” theme- a word-of-mouth insider spot. The essence of Onyx is its vibrant lounge with a relaxed atmosphere but successfully combined with a cutting edge nightclub. Live jazz is played every Tuesday, and urban house beats from the best house DJs in the nation are spun on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. At Onyx, we believe that our guests are what really set us apart. We have truly captured something special. They are open-minded, “up for anything,” and above all incredibly friendly and trend-setting people. A unique, intimate and romantic venue capable of hosting just about any party or celebration, ONYX is the best spot in town to relax, drink, mingle with singles, and let loose almost ever night of the week.
Onyx, with a variety of vinyl connoisseurs spinning everything from rare grooves and break beat to hip hop and house music and live jazz bands has mastered this art. Join us for one of our famous classic cocktails such as the famous Onyx Red Apple Martini, or our class Jack and Coke served in a prohibition style coffee mug. These and many other cocktails were inspired by an age of materialism, sex, drugs and of course alcohol, which according to F. Scott Fitzgerald helped to produce, “the greatest, gaudiest spree in history.” For the best music experience in the city, Onyx night club.
