Ida Bailey’s

Aptly named after one of the most infamous ladies ever to reside in what was formerly known as the “Stingaree,” and is now the Gaslamp District, Ida Bailey’s Restaurant provides a calm relaxing atmosphere, that is sure to complement your stay at the historic Horton Grand Hotel.

Located near the exact spot where Madame Bailey ran her highly sought after Canary Cottage, Ida Bailey’s is one of the most historic restaurants in all of San Diego.

In the early 1900s, the Stingaree was home to more than a few entrepreneurial characters and a politician or two with less-than-ideal agendas on the mind.

Since those early Stingaree days, though, the Gaslamp has been transformed into a classy, exciting, and truly unique bustling metropolitan area with plenty to offer in the way of shopping, dining, and sightseeing.

Since the day it opened, Ida Bailey’s has been committed to providing the freshest and most delicious Californian dishes, with plenty South of the border influences.
