Get ready to place your bets! Striders, which opened October 31, is not only a gorgeous bar and restaurant, but it is the only place in downtown San Diego where you can wager on horse racing. Racing fans can bet on premier horse races from around the world, including at our own Del Mar Race Track, in addition to Santa Anita, Belmont Park, Gulfstream Park and many more. Located at 100 Harbor Drive, opposite the Convention Center and under the iconic twin black towers of the Harbor Club, Striders is a multi-level restaurant, bar and high-end Turf Club.

“Striders is an exclusive entertainment venue that combines a restaurant, bar and high-end lounge featuring over 150 HD TV’s for watching sports all under one roof,” said Phil Balderamos, Managing Director of Sportech Venues California. “Most uniquely, Striders is the only place downtown where guests can wager on horse racing as permitted by the California Horse Racing Board.”
"The California horse racing industry could not be more pleased with our newest mini-satellite wagering location at Striders," said Del Mar Racetrack Chief Operating Officer, Josh Rubinstein. “At the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club we are currently running live with our second Bing Crosby Season and Striders will be a great way to keep the fun of horse racing going after our meet closes."
“We’ve built a first class facility that we anticipate will be a big hit with locals and visitors alike,” said Ron Kassab of SSG. “Based on the popularity of horse racing in San Diego County, with the world famous Del Mar Thoroughbred Club and many horse owners and trainers, Striders is designed to appeal to racing fans as well as residents, tourists and conventioneers and everyone who loves the style and gaming action of Las Vegas.”
Striders offers lunch and dinner daily with a brunch on Saturday and Sunday that will feature both a Bloody Mary and Mimosa bars. And if you need your morning coffee fix, Striders has you covered with an Illy coffee bar open in the mornings. Additionally, there is a state of the art Turf Club lounge where race fans can play the ponies in style while sipping on hand-crafted cocktails. Striders boasts over 200 high definition screens throughout its contemporary space. The video wall is actually so big that the race horses will appear to be life size.
