Reintroducing High Bar, Hotel SLO's Newest Open Air Venue in San Luis Obispo

Hotel San Luis Obispo, on California’s scenic Central Coast, has announced new menu offerings for its expansive rooftop terrace and accompanying lounge, High Bar. High Bar, which finished construction in June 2020 and initially opened last summer at limited capacity, is an inviting space for guests to revel in the stunning views of the Seven Sisters surrounding volcanic mountains range and San Luis Obispo’s vibrant downtown. Its offerings include cocktails, wine, craft beer, light bites, and specialty pizza.

Delicious new menu highlights include Chef Kenny Bigwood’s Stepladder Creamery Cheeseplate, Dungeness Crab Sliders and Thai Chicken Meatballs. Cocktails include original creations from the hotel’s bartending team, Alex Mendoza, Steven Valdez and Hakon Bream. Mendoza’s Mendoza Margarita is a sweet, fresh mix of Santo Reposado Tequila, Fresh Lime, Mango Puree, House-made Habanero Syrup and Tajin, producing a spicy finish. Valdez’s Fruity Valdez is curated with Cucumber-infused Tito’s Vodka, Midori, Cointreau, Muddled Cucumber, Strawberry Puree and Fresh Lime Juice.  Bream’s tropical and refreshing Bream's Blueberry Mojito includes Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum, Cream of Coconut, Mint, Lime and Soda.

The rooftop terrace also includes a lushly planted chef’s garden.  Olives, herbs and citrus grown in the garden are infused in dishes curated for High Bar, and Hotel SLO’s onsite restaurants Piadina and  Ox + Anchor.

Situated in the heart of downtown San Luis Obispo, Hotel San Luis Obispo is a luxurious eco-friendly retreat for visitors wanting to explore the attractions of the Central Coast.  The property is located just a block from the historic Mission San Luis Obispo, a Spanish mission founded in 1772, and steps from excellent restaurants and shopping.  Other nearby activities include surfing or fishing at many of the county’s beaches, including world-renowned Avila Beach; hiking the Seven Sisters, the area’s famous volcanic peaks, as well as hundreds of other trails; and winetasting at over 27 tastings rooms throughout the highly acclaimed Edna Valley wine appellation, just minutes away from the property.
