San Diego high-rise restaurants or bars?

I know there's a bar at the top of the Manchester Grand Hyatt. Any other suggestions for eating or drinking up high with a view? Thanks!

    I've never been, but my co-worker worked for a few years at the Hotel La Jolla bar (on the top floor), at the corner of Torrey Pines and the 52/I-5 onramp, and he claims the sunset and daytimes views are spectacular! Probably not much to see after sundown though...

      There's also one at the W that has a sand floor and firepit. I really like the one at the new Hard Rock hotel but the view isn't quite as spectacular because it's not as high up. George's Ocean Terrace in La Jolla also has great views overlooking the ocean.

        There is also the Ivy downtown but the food can be hit or miss. Altitude has a great view but the drinks are iffy and the food is ehhh...

        Jsix is okay and they have been through a few chefs but seem to be making a comeback.

            I know the Marriott in the Gaslamp has a rooftop bar called Altitude. Stingaree andJSix also have rooftop bars. And there's always Bertrand's at Mr. A's for good food and a fabulous view.
