Where is 98 Bottles?
We are located in the Northern part of Little Italy, in the Art & Design District at 2400 Kettner Blvd, Suite 110. We are at the southern end of the same building that houses the Harley Davidson dealership. Kettner is a one-way street going south into downtown. We’re just south of the main intersection of Kettner & Laurel.
Do you have an event space?
98 Bottles was originally built as a loading dock when Little Italy was formed in the 1930’s.
There is a natural separation in the space due to the lifted floor plan. The upper level is our event space with amenities to suit all types of events. We host weddings, conferences, corporate trainings, birthdays, and all types of events. The back room holds 135 guests, with the entire venue at 216. For booking information please email chris@98bottlesSD.com
Is there live music?
We have live music! There isn’t a consistent schedule for live music, but we host a variety of genres and styles with a 2 week lead time to promote and sell tickets. Many of the shows are ticketed as well as free. The best way to stay in the loop is to follow us on social media.
What about parking?
There is ample street parking all around 98 Bottles and it is free after 6pm and all day Sunday. After 6pm all colored curbs (except red) are available for use. If you prefer garage parking, there is the Airport Parking Garage just down the street at Kettner and Laurel where you can self-park for $9. (good for 24 hours.)
Is there a cover charge?
