The Whaling Bar

La Jolla, CA

The Southern California Restaurant Design Group collaborated with La Jolla’s renowned Whaling Bar at the La Valencia hotel to breathe new life into its iconic space. The mission was to restore the timeless charm and allure of the original Whaling Bar while elevating it to new heights. Through meticulous coordination, our team ensured that every detail was executed. Despite the constraints of a compact area, SCRDG sourced a bespoke cooking suite by Heston, exquisite John Boos wood block countertops and other distinctive finishes. The seamless flow of the kitchen and the overall design honor the grandeur of the historic hotel and its legendary bar.
