rock. The open air makes for beautiful acoustics, and the bar and restaurant nearby keep everything feeling comfortable and down to earth. I'm used to headlining acts at places like the Staples Center, where you are ushered in like sheep, buy bottles of water five times their value, and have to hike a mile to the nearest bathroom...where you'll wait 30 minutes if you're a woman. At Humphrey's, everything is more relaxed, laid-back, and closer together. And at night, the bay and starry sky make it simply enchanting.

Great concert venue. Any seat is a good seat because of the size of the place. So much fun being at a concert by the water under the stars.

First time seeing a concert here. Small venue, very intimate.
Seats are a little tight so go to the bathroom before you sit or you will have to squeeze your way out.
They have wait service available to save you the walk.
A wonderful outdoor venue. Great way to spend a cool San Diego summer evening.

If you're coming to San Diego, check the online schedule at Humphrey's Concerts by the Bay. Many greats have played at this small, outdoor venue that overlooks the bay. We've personally seen Chicago, Steely Dan, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Boz Scaggs, Crosby Stills and Nash among many others here. It is TWO MINUTES from the house.

Great venue for outdoor concerts. Slurge for the dinner/concert combo for excellent seats.

From April through September, Humphrey's has many well known artists, such as Ringo Starr, Bonnie Raitt, and Crosby Stills & Nash performing live in an outdoor amphitheater. http://www.humphreysconcerts.com/

Humphrey's has such good potential for being a 5 star venue for music. However, they really cram everyone in with the seats so close you can barely move and if you stand up to dance to the music the security nazi's (yes they are not very nice at all) will argue with you to sit down. So it is like you are in school. I understand that people want to see but, we have been to hundreds of concerts and venues across the US and no one ever treats us like this place does. That said the setting on the bay is beautiful. You can bring your boat by the edge and and hear the concert for free. Wish I had a boat. The bartenders here are very good and friendly unlike the security people. We keep hoping it will change and keep going back every couple of years to see if it does and so far nope.

ABSOLUTELY THE PERFECT VENUE FOR AN OUTDOOR SUMMER CONCERT. SO INTIMATE AND ROMANTIC! NOT A BAD SEAT IN THE PLACE:)

This is a wonderfully intimate outdoors venue right on the water. Tony Bennett was playing there (wish you could see the piano and stand up bass on stage in this photo). If you can afford it and make your reservation in time, some of the rooms of this resort have balconies that face the stage. Talk about VIP seats! :)
