Texas-based Stella Public House & Halcyon, which current has a San Diego location in East Village, will open second area outpost in San Marcos as part of the ambitious North City urban development, joining other local businesses including Mason Ale Works & Urge Gastropub.
North City is a developing 204-acre mixed-use community that is quickly establishing an urban neighborhood presence, the first of its kind in North County. The community has made another stride in its vision to provide a walkable neighborhood in North County San Diego with the addition of Halcyon Coffee Bar & Lounge, a modern coffeehouse and cocktail lounge, and Stella Public House, a local ingredient driven, wood-fired pizza eatery and craft beer tap room. The two will share a large patio in the heart of the North City neighborhood. Located on the ground floor of the recently opened, mixed-use Block C Apartments, both buildouts are well underway and expected to open by June 1. North City grand opening event is also in the works to welcome these and other new neighborhood establishments.
Block C features 197 residential studios, one and two bedroom apartments and three bedroom townhouses all overlooking North City Plaza, an open-air walking, dining and gathering space. Separate and distinct, Stella Public House is 2,812 square-foot with seating for 100, and Halcyon is 1,709 square-foot and seats 68. Situated across from one another and open to either side of the large Block C entryway, they create a "lobby lounge." Both storefronts open completely to the outdoor plaza with extended seating, creating a vibrant space of dining and interaction.
