Hiatus Lounge

After a day at the beach or dinner at Cusp, unwind downstairs at Hiatus, our intimate poolside bar.

We believe Hiatus is the perfect little hideaway in La Jolla. Located adjacent to the Hotel La Jolla pool, Hiatus serves-up bites and cocktails for the perfect accompaniment to your day lounging in the sun. And when the sun goes down, Hiatus sets the mood, to hang out, relax, and sip one of our mixologist's flavorful concoctions by the cozy outdoor fireplace. Imagine this poolside scene - a daiquiri done Hemingway-style with real fruit and the fresh Pacific Ocean breeze. You've found yourself that little escape by the shore you have been looking for. And this summer we've got a line up of drink specials, music, and events to keep you entertained.

If you're looking for a casual place to grab a bite, Hiatus also features an innovative Mediterranean-inspired menu. Try one of the mouth-watering sandwiches, like the bacon avocado grilled cheese, or a tasty prosciutto ricotta, and fig crostini - or three. It's ok we won't tell.

Whatever your choice, the goal is to relax by the pool, enjoy the beautiful La Jolla breeze, and forget all your cares at Hiatus.
