Longtime All-Hours Hotspot Brian's 24 Shutters In Downtown San Diego

August 1, 2022

Downtown San Diego's restaurant that never sleeps is no more! Brian’s 24, the iconic 24-hour restaurant in the heart of the Gaslamp District, has closed for good after more than a decade in business.

Brian Stout and Brian Savage, who at the time owned Brian's Eatery in the space that now houses Great Maple in Hillcrest, opened Brian's 24 in 2008 within the space adjacent to the lobby of the historic St. James Hotel in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter. The all-hours restaurant offered a lengthy menu of diner comfort foods complimented by a full bar. In 2009, the restaurant was transferred to Andrea Epstein, who operated the establishment until 2018 when it was purchased by Mark Cicourel and Kevin Kitchen, who also own Del Mar Rendezvous. 

Brian's 24 modified its schedule during the pandemic and ceased its evening and early morning hours. Yesterday Brian's 24 celebrated its last day in business with a DJ-fueled boozy brunch. There is no word what will come of the space at 828 6th Avenue in downtown San Diego.
