Stingaree is a Goliath of a night spot with four distinct areas to explore. The ground floor features a full dance floor along with VIP booths. The bar is famous for its extensive wine list and specialty cocktails (including the "Berry Manilow"). Upstairs is the Mezzanine, a more intimate lounge-style area where revelers can sip drinks and survey the action down below. Keep heading skyward and you'll find yourself on the Rooftop Oasis complete with private cabanas, a fire pit more for ambiance than warmth and comfortable lounge seating. See website for menus, wine list, happy hour info, event calendar, online reservations and more.
So yes, it's a hot spot because of the beautiful atmosphere and decor, but if the people made the place I'd say it's hideous. Maybe the weekend is a bad time to go where out of towners make it a horrible experience with rude people, but the food was good and the bartenders were cool. Just be prepared to spend some cash!
Wow: After asking everyone where the hot spot was in the Gaslamp District, I was sent to the classy Stingaree. I was outside and was like wow this must be the 'ish'. There were many people attempting to get inside via the guest list and I couldn't understand why, since me and my date walked right in using the regular line. Until I got inside.... I didn't know that I needed to rob a bank on my way there or stop by Pier One to bring my own seating. The dancing didn't start until late and the cover and drinks were atrociously overpriced. The atmosphere was nice and I didn't understand the concept of having seating on the rooftop where patrons draped their feet over my drink. If you don't want to rob a bank I suggest you get a good amount of money before entering. I was surprised that I had to go to their inside atm 3 times because they only allow you a minimal amount of cash withdrawal at one time (with a 3 dollar charge). The areas roped off for VIPs was bigger than the dance floor where you also had to stand since there was no seating. I do admit that the staff was very courteous and approachable. I am not frugal and I like to have a great time but this experience was not the best bang for your buck.
I went here for my birthday and it was BAD! The waiter was totally deragatory when I asked that my filet be cooked medium well. He made a face and insisted that I get it rare. I have been to Ruth's Chris and Smith and Wolensky and there the customer is always right. When the steak did come it was rare. I asked that they fix it and it took FOREVER. They got our drink orders all wrong. The waiter cotinued to be more condescending and to top it all off someone got sick from the food. And we had to pay a forced 18% tip to a very rude waiter. The club is nice though. Do NOT eat there though.
A group of friends and I were celebrating a big success at work! We arranged for a private section to begin celebrating and then did bottle service for the rest of the night. What we experienced was second to none! The people were beautiful, the food was good and we had a great time! If you've never been here before you're missing out, if you have been here before i'll see you there! Go to Stingaree.
