Luxurious Club M in North County San Diego



Club M is located in The Grand Del Mar in North County San Diego. Immediately upon entering the premises, you will be introduced to the gate guard that checks identification and wishes the visitors a fun and safe evening. Traveling along tree-lined roads you  become aware that this is no ordinary location. It is a drive of luxury with rolling hills and manicured flowers that fancy the eye. Even the stone signs and fencing make you think of something out of Downtown Abbey.


Upon arrival, you pull your car to the valet who promptly open the doors, hand you a ticket and drive off. The total is $10 with no cost to enter the establishment. If you have frequented the club scene, you are aware that $10 or $20 is often necessary to simply enter a dance club. To pay this amount for valet instead of a cover charge is pleasant. They parked my old Porsche next to the valet stand in the first spot-I guess the new paint job hides its true value. 


They serve breakfast, lunch and tapas (snacks). Items like Duck Confit Flatbread, Seared Salmon and Watercress, as well as sandwiches, salads, and tacos. Dinning ends at 10:00 pm on the weekend and live music is played between 8:00 pm and 10:00 pm before the thumping sound of the D.J. starts. Once that gets going the crowd starts to pile in for a fun evening. 


Seating is luxurious with indoor, patio, and fireplace seating available. The decorations of the establishment are top notch and feels as though it was a place for a Spanish king. Perhaps Phillip II of Spain would have taken a vacation there if it was available at the time. The great thing is you don’t need to be part of a Monarch to feel like you are born right into a line of kings.


The dance floor is adjacent to the patio which makes it convenient to heat up the body and then move out for some fresh air and conversation. Plenty of spaces are available for people to communicate. The music might be a little loud for long conversations but at least it offers an opportunity to sit and put your items down. This is a great plus within a club.

The ages range from 25 to 55 with a various mixture of each. The music is modern dance in its orientation which draws a wide crowd. You will find the young dancing next to the old. On occasion, you may find them dancing together. Makes you wonder. Yet it appears that all are welcome at Club M and all seem to come. 

The lines can be a little long at the bar. When it is busy the bar tenders do their best to keep up with the crowd. If you wait in your chair long enough you will find a waitress that will make her rounds every 10 minutes or so. Prices of drinks are a little expensive but not out of the normal for an establishment. A glass of Merlot and a whiskey sour costs around $27. They are tall stiff drinks so it makes you feel a little better.


The Grand Del Mar offerings a wide variety of activities that include golfing, dining, resort facilities, equestrian classes and events, pool, tennis, spa and much more. It is a luxurious location with that hosts a 5-star hotel that has truly a luxurious servicescape. The grounds and buildings are immaculate and this offers one of the best views and locations in the country. It is located in San Diego's Los Peñasquitos Canyon and only 5 miles from the coast.

Dining and Dancing on the Bay at Prospect Bar and Grill


The crowd sways and the music plays at Prospect Bar and Grill. The attendees are energized and full of youthful excitement as to what the night will bring. Located in the downtown commercial district of La Jolla California it is one of those convenient locals clubs that is both around the block and down to earth. The crowd ranges from the late twenties to the early forties. It has a nice blend of outdoor and indoor seating that accommodates a chance to dance or chat.

The Prospect has a luscious menu that ranges in everything from chicken fingers to lobster ravioli. Besides items like steamed mussels and pesto salmon one can also tantalize their taste buds with an indulgent chocolate mousse cake.  Most items on the menu are under $16 while wine selections are around $9 per glass. You may visit their menu at http://www.prospectbar.com/images/menus.pdf

A  nice attraction about this establishment is that you can sit outside on the patio overlooking the bay. The warmers will keep you from the chill but the view will warm your heart so they probably aren’t needed anyway. It is recommended that you come to eat around 8:00 P.M if you desire to enjoy supper before dancing and want to avoid the $5.00 charge that kicks in when the music starts playing. 

It appears that the restaurant will accommodate large groups and will section off areas to make these accommodations. It is important to make reservations ahead of time in order to host a party group. Small groups are not likely to have to wait long before finding seating as dinner time flow is smooth. Plenty of space for everyone.

Before nine o’clock expect the dinner crowd to be finishing their meals and the D.J. to just be starting to set up his jamming list. By ten o’clock the party starts rolling with dance music, drinks, and a social frenzy. No need to worry about long lines as the club seems to have just the right quantity of attendees which avoids unnecessary drink delays. 

The strategy of establishment appears to coincide with the maximization of facilities and resources. The day and evenings are food service times while the evening caters to the club going crowd. Pool tables are available during the day or early evenings to coincide with the lounge atmosphere. Television sets are placed on the walls for those who like to catch up on their sports statistics.
