Play Hooky San Diego! Del Mar's Opening Day Comes But Once A Summer...

Race related festivities make for a full day of specialty cocktails, track fashion and parties with the who’s who of Del Mar’s biggest day. L’Auberge Del Mar is officially where it’s at again this year; our bars open at 8am with real time race coverage and our world renowned Opening Day After-Party takes place 5pm to midnight.

Tickets for the party are available online through July 15th at www.openingdayafterparty.com . A ticket gets you in the door, delicious eats from the award-winning culinary team, entertainment from our favorite San Diego DJs Gabe Vega and FishFonics, and of course the signature striking view of a July sunset over a dazzling sea of hat-sporting humanity.

New this year are 'Vignette' spaces with bottle service and an expanded beverage offering of the best Del Mar has to offer, including some of the finest bourbons around and themed libations from Maker’s Mark, Grey Goose and Perrier-Jouët, as well as a consummate Bloody Mary bar the morning after.

Southern California Wedding Favor Ideas

The L’Auberge Del Mar Wedding Team is often asked what the perfect “favor” for their guests is, and we are here to help!

The location is such an important factor when weighing this decision. For a seaside ceremony at Seagrove Park, providing your guests with a pair of customized sunglasses is a great way to protect their eyes from the California sunshine. Or perhaps your guests will be dancing the night away in our Platinum Ballroom; surprise them with a stash of flip-flops to relieve their feet.

Whatever you decide, your guests will always associate it with your spectacular seaside wedding!
