A New "Botanical Speakeasy" Ready To Bloom In San Diego

February 24, 2023

May flowers are coming early this year, as a new "botanical speakeasy" is set to unveil next month in San Diego. 

San Diego's Estancia Resort has partnered with local florist Native Poppy to transform the onsite Greenfinch Bar space into a floral-filled wonderland to be known as Estancia in Bloom botanical speakeasy. Expect a blossoming secret garden featuring an abundance of bold, floor-to-ceiling floral installations, as well as a menu of festive bubbles, colorful cocktails and tantalizing small bites. Unveiling Friday, March 10, the year-long pop-up will open every day from 4-10pm. 

"Native Poppy has planned a year-long presence at the Estancia Hotel, showcasing tastefully curated installations that accentuate the hacienda-style ambiance of the property," explained Native Poppy founder Natalie Gill. "The initial 'Estancia in Bloom' exhibit will commence on March 1st, comprising contemporary blooms that embody the essence of spring. These blossoms will feature various hues of purple, apricot, dusty blue, peach, and champagne, coupled with imaginative foliage and intriguing textures. We invite you to experience the transformed Greenfinch Bar, which has been reinvented as a flourishing space, and savor seasonal specialty cocktails. We are thrilled to bring floral magic to the Estancia through our artistic designs and grand installation work."

Spanning ten acres on La Jolla's cliffside coastline, Estancia is located near University of California San Diego campus in the affluent coastal community of La Jolla. The resort contains 210 spacious guest rooms and suites and over 50,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space. The property also features numerous dining venues, including Mustangs & Burros, Greenfinch Restaurant & Bar, Haven Bar & Grill, and Blend Café and Secret Garden. In late 2021, Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa was purchased by Pebblebrook Hotel Trust for $108 million and is now managed and operated by Noble House Hotels & Resorts.

Estancia La Jolla is located at 9700 North Torrey Pines Road in San Diego's La Jolla. For more information, visit estancialajolla.com.
