San Diego's $7 million dollar entertainment destination recognized as #5 on national poll.

Stingaree, the Gaslamp Quarter's sizzling celebrity hot spot was recognized as one of the 10 hottest new bars in the country in a national poll featured on the homepage of this week. The three-story state-of-the-art nightclub was ranked #5 alongside leading nightlife venues in Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco. Stingaree opened to the public in December 2005, has packed the house with an irresistible crowd of San Diego's most sexy, as well as Hollywood hipsters including Fergie, Josh Duhamel, Vanessa Minnillo, Kanye West, Pamela Anderson, Lil' Jon, The Wayans Bros., The Black Eyed Peas, Alyssa Milano, Seth Green, Flava Flav and more. Already labeled as "The hottest place to party in San Diego" by Paris Hilton, Stingaree's posh atmosphere is generating super star buzz with the ultimate blend of big city style and first-rate service.

Located in a historic warehouse and named after San Diego's once taboo red light district, the 22,500 square foot venue turns up the heat with provocative undertones that match its racy namesake. Guests of Stingaree can get cozy in private cabanas or on plush king sized beds on the beautiful Rooftop Oasis. With champagne and bottle service available under the stars and between the sheets, the Oasis offers an enticing environment when the action gets too hot indoors. Take a sip of something steamy as bartenders shake up a suggestive selection of specialty cocktails including the "One Night Sting," the "No Tell Motel" and the "Get Wet." And if that's not hot enough, you can always warm things up at the fire pit, which offers a captivating view of San Diego's skyline.

The second floor, or "Mezzanine" is the most alluring level of Stingaree, as it houses a private Penthouse for the ultimate and most exclusive experience. Accommodating up to 35 people, the Penthouse is completely secluded and features its own private bartender. Just outside the Penthouse, you will find the "reservation only area" equipped with oversized booths and personalized bottle service. The lounge floats above the first level dance floor, providing guests with a voyeuristic view of the intense nightlife scene below. The Mezzanine area often doubles as a catwalk for numerous runway shows, featuring clothing designs from some of the hottest names in the fashion industry.

When you're ready to turn it up a notch, head down to the first level to experience Stingaree's hardwired nightclub. Outfitted with the most advanced lighting and sound technology, club goers will revel in an atmosphere that has earned Stingaree a reputation as one of the nation's premier dance destinations. On the opposite side of the main bar you will find the 90-seat dining area, which offers guests the perfect vantage point to enjoy the stylish surroundings. Stingaree treats guests to optimal dining ambiance with an equally creative menu that combines a hybrid of sensuous elements and exotic ingredients from around the world.

Stingaree is located at 454 Sixth Avenue. For reservations, please call 619.544.9500 or visit To view the poll, please log onto:
