New Cocktail Menu Launch Sunday, April 15th


Spring has sprung in America’s finest city. Taste the ‘spring revival’ of our new cocktail menu while experiencing San Diego’s elevated rooftop bar on Sunday, April 15th.

Our new cocktail menu features eight springtime sippers crafted by our talented team of bartenders — inspired by a summer solstice palate and Cali Baja flavors. Try ‘The Viper Tongue’, a blend of Mezcal, apricot liqueur, ginger syrup, lemon and finished with a Tajín rim or ‘Easy Breezy’ – shaken with vodka, green chartreuse, fresh lime, mango puree and pineapple.

If that doesn’t awake your senses, this will – new spring cocktails will only be $6 all day, along with other select cocktails and appetizers. Spend your day at The Nolen beginning with ‘The Sunday Requirement’, our exceptional brunch special. Enjoy a selection of brunch classics paired with bloody marys and a build-your-own mimosa bar. Brunch kicks off at 11 a.m. and wraps up at 2 p.m. but don’t rush out. Skip the rush of the year’s first beach crowd and lounge on the rooftop with happy hour priced cocktails all day.

We can’t wait to spend Sunday with you!

San Diego Restaurant Week at The Nolen

San Diego Restaurant WEek @ (1)

San Diego Restaurant Week has returned. Enjoy a unique rooftop dining experience while you sample our curated three-course menu for $30 per guest. Hurry, SDRW comes to an end on January 28th.

Our two-choice starter menu features either a Kale Caesar Salad or Chili Glazed Meatballs. For your entrée, enjoy our Prosciutto Flatbread covered with goat cheese, caramelized onions and fresh baby kale. If you are searching for a California twist on a classic dish, try the Beer Braised Sliders, a flavorful option featuring blue cheese and crispy shallots.

The final course is a pick between a beloved tiki cocktail in shot form or classic chocolate. The ‘Pain Killer’ will make you feel like you’re sitting on an island, combining multiple aged rums, coconut cream orange juice, and piña. If you are looking to indulge in more traditional dessert, go with the two-scoop chocolate gelato topped with fresh mint.

Can’t wait to see you on the rooftop!
