Just six minutes from IDEA1 is the West Coast’s premier entertainment district.

We’re talking about the Gaslamp Quarter, and this 16 ½ block area is complete with Victorian architecture, shops, entertainment, and nationally recognized nightlife venues.

Highlights include:


Parq is known for offering an unparalleled atmosphere where guests feel as though they’re enjoying a meal in Central Park. Surrounded by lighted trees, the dining area features exposed brick walls, wood beams, and unique light fixtures, and guests can enjoy meeting friends for a meal made with fresh ingredients. Choices include baby back ribs, scallops, and free range chicken.

Find Your Feet Sock & Sandal Shop

Find Your Feet opened in 2015, and there are now seven locations throughout California. It states that it takes pride in offering great designs and helping people embrace their individuality. Items include quirky novelty socks and sandals and flip flops made by Cobain, Sanuk, and Reef just to name a few.

Balboa Theatre

Recently named as one of the fifteen “world’s most spectacular theatres” by CNN Travel, the Balboa Theatre dates back to 1924 when it opened as an elegant vaudeville and movie palace. Today it’s a treasured performing arts venue that has won numerous awards from local, state, and national professional organizations. It seats nearly 3,000 and is known as the region’s largest and highest attended performing arts venue.
