Surf-Themed Party Showcases All Things Local

Del Mar, Calif.- L’Auberge Del Mar is giving groups an authentic taste of the famous Southern California beach lifestyle with its new surf-themed “Step Into Liquid” party. Available to groups of 50 or more, the party showcases the hotel’s stunning beach location while helping guests experience what it’s like to be a Del Mar local.  

“The Step Into Liquid Party is proving to be an extremely popular option for groups, many who use it as a signature event during their time at the hotel,” says Bob Harter, director of sales and marketing. “It has a relaxed, comfortable San Diego vibe with great food, local music and one of the most breathtaking sunset views in San Diego.”

Set at the Del Mar Surf Station, just steps from the property and sandy beach of Del Mar’s famous Powerhouse Park, the party is inspired by San Diego surfing and beach culture. As guests arrive, they are asked to swap their shoes for a pair of flip flops that they can take home. Themed décor includes surfboards, lifeguard chairs, beach umbrellas and sand castles. Guests hang at special tables made of surfboards on a “wave” base and a tiki-style bar serves up local craft beer, refreshing shore-side cocktails and fresh lime squeezed margaritas by the hotel’s experienced mixologists. Tequila tastings add to the fun.

Guests are further immersed into the local culture with music from popular San Diego and Southern California artists (and surfers) such as Jason Mraz, Tristan Prettyman and Donovan Frankenreiter. Flat panel screens display visuals of surfers riding waves or the popular Step Into Liquid surf documentary. When it’s time to dine, L’Auberge Del Mar’s culinary team showcases the best of San Diego’s local cuisine with items such as grilled fish and lobster tacos, Baja-style street tacos, California guacamole, sliders and seaside paella.
