SAN DIEGO, June 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Pendry San Diego is pleased to announce their first collaboration with one of San Diego's most esteemed restaurant and nightlife innovators, Andy Masi of Clique Hospitality, for the debut of the hotel, opening in late 2016.
A new luxury brand from Montage Hotels & Resorts, Pendry is a collection of hotels for the modern day traveler. Pendry Hotels will blend the thoughtful and gracious hospitality for which Montage has become known with inspired design and authentic programming.
Pendry San Diego is creating a culinary and entertainment hub in the heart of downtown San Diego featuring six dining and entertainment venues for guests and locals to enjoy. Three of these venues will be designed and developed in conjunction with the team at Clique Hospitality:
Lionfish (@lionfishsd) – Driven by seasonal, local ingredients, the Lionfish menu will feature modern coastal cuisine highlighting fresh-catch and prime meats. Lionfish is proud to partner with Executive Chef Jose "JoJo" Ruiz and welcome him to the Clique Hospitality team and the Pendry San Diego family. Most recently Chef de Cuisine at Ironside Fish & Oyster in San Diego, Calif., Ruiz's unrivaled dedication to his craft earned him a spot on Eater National's top 50 "Young Guns" list, illustrating the "the most promising up-and-coming talent in the national restaurant industry." At Lionfish, Ruiz will bring his incredible talent in sushi, seafood and coastal cuisine to the airy two-floor dining room where a menu of distinctly San Diego-inspired dishes, many served family-style, complements a diverse menu of hand-crafted, seasonally-focused cocktails.
Oxford Social Club (@theoxfordsd) – Inspired by the social clubs of a bygone era, Oxford Social Club will be the hotel's nightlife centerpiece, welcoming guests and locals to enjoy a late-night experience focused on design, music, service and an extensive, curated cocktail program. The space will be intimate and relaxed with banquette seating, plush furnishings and art installations that all take inspiration from the personal detail and comfort of a private home setting.
The Pool House (@poolhousesd) – Boasting some of the best views in the Gaslamp Quarter, The Pool House will be the hotel's premier rooftop lounge, embodying the true essence of the southern California lifestyle with its light, contemporary open-air design and indoor/outdoor aesthetic. The rooftop, perched above the Gaslamp's famed 5th Avenue, will play host to relaxed daytime and evening events and gatherings and will feature a signature bar and cocktail experience for poolside guests.
"With Pendry, we are rethinking the concept of luxury and how it appeals to today's guests and travelers. A big part of that story is collaboration, community and innovation," said Michael Fuerstman, co-founder and creative director, Pendry Hotels. "Andy Masi and Clique Hospitality bring extraordinary experience and talent to the project, and we are thrilled to partner with them on our first hotel."
"San Diego is home to us and we know that Pendry San Diego will be a welcome addition to the city," said Andy Masi, chief executive officer of Clique Hospitality. "We are excited to work with the Pendry team and together elevate the restaurant and nightlife experience in the area to new heights for travelers and locals alike."
