The perfect setting for bubbles


As the date approaches for our 2nd Annual Bubbles Bash: Champagne Masqueradewe wanted to take a moment to focus on our spectacular host for this year’s event. Somehow, the Westgate Hotel manages to fly mostly below the radar. In fact, it’s one of San Diego’s best-kept secrets. However, we’re talking about one of the most luxurious buildings in Southern California.

Grand Lobby

The Westgate was designed to be evocative of Europe’s grand palaces, and it’s without a doubt the perfect place to take part in our unique array of sparkling wines from around the world. Not to mention that they’ll be poured alongside an amazing menu of  Hors Devours from The Westgate’s Executive Chef Fabrice Hardel! Here’s a peek:

Grassy Bar Oyster, Horseradish Cream

Hackleback Caviar and Blinis

Spot Prawn, Preserved Lemon, Cilantro 

Kurobuta Pork, Salsify, Burgundy Truffle, Larate Potatoes

Yellow Tail Sashimi, Ponzu, Sprout and Mango

Vegetable Tian, Heirloom Tomato Viniagrette

Bittersweet Chocolate Mousse with Blood Orange Marmalade

Parisian Macarons
