The Nolen is a destination rooftop bar and lounge that honors modern, timeless cocktails
and a renewed spirit of community. Named for John Nolen, a city-planning pioneer
who mapped out much of San Diego’s early landscape, The Nolen is perched on the
14th floor rooftop of the newly constructed Courtyard San Diego Gaslamp/Convention
Center. Local and visiting imbibers can take a quick elevator ride up to discover a
spirited escape from downtown that offers sweeping city views and a contemporary
interpretation of the classic speakeasy.
