Downtown Has an Unofficial Arts District
Here's how to explore it during one night in May

Connect the dots between all these performance venues and you’ll see the potential for San Diego’s very own arts district. Even the building on the corner of C Street and Fourth Avenue housed a theater for 90 years. It’s currently being redeveloped as The Overture condos, with plans for a new 2,000-square-foot theater space, set to open around 2019.
We credit San Diego Opera’s general director, David Bennett, with pointing out that the institutions are here—all we need are some developers to buy in. He imagines the area having its own identity, with retail and restaurants being built around the arts. Want to grab drinks after a show? We do, too. Developers, listen up.
