Hillcrest hot spot
Touted as the largest and oldest of San Diego's nightclubs, it's no wonder that Rich's is San Diego's most popular. Find a cute crowd dancing to the house and pop remixes all night.

      The place for juveniles
      As soon as you walk into richs..the first thought that's likely to come to your mind is "Where are the adults?" This place is for kids. (and grown-ups of all ages who behave like kids). Patrons are deluded, mostly uneducated lower class people. Bar tenders are rude and DJs pretty much suck every night with rare exceptions. Avoid.

      Visiting from Texas during Pride 2014
      Now this is the dance club. The deejays will keep you on that dance floor till you drop. Naturally, during their busy nights and/or special events it will get very crowded and hot.! That is to be expected. Lots of yummy eye candy, to say the least. Planning on buying my VIP weekend Pass during Pride. Works out perfect. Plus it saves you $$$.

      Good And Hot
      My partner and I were there two months ago and we had a blast. The dance floor is big, the boys are cute and the drinks were strong. I highly recommend it if dancing and cruising are your thing. We were with a group of friends who are locals so the doormen knew my friends and let us cut the line.

    • Bad Experience.
      Went here this past Thursday and got someone hit me for no reason and it ended in a fight. Security ended up kicking me out on my birthday and let the other guy stay because he was from San Diego and we are not from around there. I had to call the REAL cops because the security failed to do their low wage job correctly. I have to say that the club was packed, and crackin' but the security just ruined it for us. We were told to go back to where we were from. I won't ever return here and will just go to West Hollywood next time..

      Polarizingly popular
      Even those who claim to hate Rich's usually have been there and secretly know its appeal: Giant dance floor with easily cruisable perimeter, spacious front bar and patio with many hot, young, buzzed gays. The usual drawbacks of cover charge, pricey drinks, attitude, and unavailable restrooms can be ignored easily if a cocktail-induced trip to the dance floor segues into several of your favorite songs in a row. Many theme nights for different ages (i.e. bear nights), but mostly younger crowd with enough other elements to keep some diversity.

      Fun, Popular, But ;-)>
      I like Rich's. The space is modern, large glass wall in front looking in upon a spacious dance floor and bar with dim lighting. Large sidewalk patio for you smokers to strike a pose and look cheek against the glass. In the back is a larger dance floor. I know this place has a reputation for uptight cranky doormen and impersonal staff but my experience was I was treated nicely. I went with the intent of engaging the staff to test them and they passed with me. I'll go a few more times and put them through the customer service passes, lol. The crowd ranged from young to 30 something. Personal high maintenance seems to be the common theme with this crowd but my advise to the crowd would be okay honey you look good now relax and stop worrying abouut who's noticing you, lol. Looking good and trying to rub it in is tacky but looking good and just lettin it be what it is, is sexy. When the munchies come on you'll find outside a great Hot Dog stand. I will be back to Rich's and give it another roll of the dice.

      Popular bar, with lousy music. The beat/bass is kept low on these dancefloors so that they dont conflict with each other. Invest in some insulation between dancefloors and put a draincatch under the fog machine spewing solution onto the dance floor. I really dont understand why SD bar management cant get it together. We never had a single good night of dance for the entire week of stay in SD

      Snooty doorman. It's al about "who" they want in. Go somewhere else1
      They said I could not enter because I was drunk. Their judgement was because how I got out of the cab. Ummm, I am 60 years old. I get out of cabs slowly and awkwardly. It is what happens at 60. It is about the age of the people they want in or something I don't understand. Any way, if you are over 19 go some where else.
