Intercontinental San Diego To Launch Layover On The Fourth Floor Rooftop
InterContinental San Diego proudly announces the debut of its newest food and beverage concept, Layover, opened September 7th. Located on the hotel’s fourth floor rooftop, Layover offers guests and locals alike an outdoor lounge experience with first-class seats to remarkable elevated views of air, sea, and the downtown skyline.
Dine and Drink
Guests of Layover will be able to dine and drink at the sleek all-white 15-seat bar or lounge comfortably in Adirondack chairs and plush outdoor furnishings surrounding several fire pits. The name “Layover” is a nod to the four airfields, past and present, visible from the venue – the USS Midway flight deck, the US Coast Guard air station, US North Island Naval station and San Diego airport – allowing guests to catch the picturesque sights of aircrafts taking off in the distance.
“When your flight is landing in San Diego, you’re briefly greeted by an incredible view: the city skyline soaring behind you and the shimmering bay out in front.” said Food & Beverage Director Jeff Josenhans. “Layover captures that moment and feeling, embodying it in a physical space where you can stop in for a drink before dinner or linger with friends on the weekend.”
As a casual, beverage-centric concept, Layover’s drink menu will consist of canned cocktails, wine, and beer plus slushy versions of classic, aero-inspired cocktails including the Paper Plane (Bulleit bourbon, Aperol, vermouth, lemon) and Aviation (Aviation gin, violet liqueur, maraschino, lemon). An approachable food menu will include shareable bites prepared by Executive Chef Amy DiBiase and include dishes such as BBQ Gonestraw Farms duck steamed buns and local flounder ceviche with coconut.
Layover will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and will offer a series of rooftop wellness events throughout September and October. The lounge’s opening comes just one year after the debut of the InterContinental San Diego’s signature restaurant Vistal in August 2018. Vistal is located on the hotel’s third floor and offers an innovative menu of fresh, local dishes
with a connection to the seaside communities and diverse cultures that encompass San Diego’s past and present.
See you there!
