Join us for Brothels, Bites & Booze walking tour with SoDiego Tours and explore the Gaslamp Quarter, the heart of America's finest city. Learn the secrets behind the district's historic buildings as you travel back in time to the infamous red light district known as the Stingaree. You'll enjoy enough delicious food for a full meal.

Brothels: Our guide will provide an in-depth look at the infamous red light district of San Diego and the women who ruled the streets.  See what drew them to this lifestyle and the price they paid to be amongst the few financially independent women of the time.  Scandalous tales of the most popular brothels and Prohibition-era gangsters will have you thirsty for more!

Tin Fish, Meze, Ciros and The Melting Pot are on our walking tour.

Booze: The perfect complement to a delicious sampling of food is drinks to wash it down.  The Gaslamp Quarter is home to an endless amount of unique craft cocktail bars and some of the top microbreweries in the country.  Finish off your Gaslamp Quarter food tour with a sample-sized brew, cocktail, or other intoxicating treat for the full San Diego Experience.
