After a run of nearly a decade in San Diego, Bassmnt Nightclub announced they’re shutting down with a new club set to emerge in its place.


The nightlife scene in San Diego took a huge hit during the pandemic as venues shuttered their doors. Last year saw a handful of clubs begin slowly but surely re-open, some like Parq, made a grand return while others like Bang Bang saw a changing of the guard on who was running the show. But it wasn’t until 2022 that two pillars of the nightlife scene, OMNIA San Diego and Bassmnt Nightclub, saw some renewed activity of their own.

Earlier this month we reported that Insomniac was making their final steps in taking over OMNIA San Diego. Then, this past week, Bassmnt Nightclub posted a message to their social media accounts stating that “big news was coming soon.” The latest update arrived on Monday as they announced that the nightclub would be ending its run after nearly a decade of operation in downtown San Diego. Artists such as ARMNHMR, Markus Schulz, Noizu, Wenzday, Dack Janiels, Ummet Ozcan, SVDDEN DEATH, and more had graced their stage over the years.

After an amazing nine-year run at Bassmnt Nightclub will be closing its doors. We’ve made a lifetime of memories with all of you at Bassmnt and we’d be lying if we said we weren’t a little sad… but don’t despair!

The reason why San Diegans looking to get their groove on shouldn’t despair is because the venue itself will be going through an “extensive remodel and upgrade,” leading to the reopening of a brand new nightclub, Bloom. The first murmurs of this aptly named nightclub began in 2021 when their colorful Instagram account teased that it would be surfacing in the spring of this year.

Last week, Bloom posted that details for their hiring fair would be announced soon. As of publishing, no further information has surfaced about the hiring fair or what’s in store at this fresh experience in America’s Finest City.

Stay tuned and follow Bloom on their social media pages for the latest updates on this new nightclub in San Diego.
