The new beachfront gathering space and special event venue, Mission Bay Beach Club, is rolling out their continued plans to revitalize the area. Long dormant, the City of San Diego and the Mission Bay Parks Department invested in the project to bring the historic and uniquely designed building back to life in its picturesque home overlooking the water. Partnering with Bradley Schnell of Playground design agency and Kristine Overacre of Beaucoup Creative, the Mission Bay Beach Club is the latest waterfront destination.
The site features Superbloom, a coffee shop and juice bar with vegan pastries, and an ice cream cart called Summer Afternoons. Celebrating the active local beach culture, their on-site rental facility called Beach Bunny loans bikes and paddle boards to roam the nearby parks and calm waters. Both Superbloom and Beach Bunny are currently in operation at the site.
Coming soon Mission Bay Beach Club will add a restaurant called Picnic, expected in 2022. No specific opening date or timeline has been announced. Picnic will feature a wood-fired pizza oven and a full bar with a focus on wine. According to their Website, their menu will specialize in seasonal ingredients sourced from local farms. The site will include a bottle shop to pick up items from their curated wines for off-site consumption.
Growing now on the site is their take on an urban vineyard, with grape varieties sunning in neat rows surrounding the building. The “Vineyard by the Bay” will soon be the backdrop for live events and available for rent for private parties, weddings, and corporate gatherings. We hope their harvest will eventually turn into product to be served in the Picnic bar.
Mission Bay Beach Club is now accepting visitors and enrolling club members. Visit their Facebook page to see their current projects as they continue to roll out new features.
