When holiday shopping has you cursing the malls and hiding indoors, the joys of the season have officially run dry. If you’ve been scoffing at the smiles of Jolly Ol’ St. Nick, it’s time to change things up and find a new way to go about your gift-giving duties…
For one night, the second floor of The Keating Hotel will transform into the ultimate one-stop shopping experience, chic and smart enough to include cocktails for retail-healing and spa services for the stressed-out shopper. The Keating Experience, dubbed as “Fashionable Indulgence,” will ultimately put the fun and festivities back into holiday shopping, whether it’s in your tiresome gift searching or your personal winter-wardrobe building.
From 6pm to 10pm on December 12, guests will find unique shopping options, cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and spa treatments all under one roof. Located in the heart of the Gaslamp District, The Keating is conveniently located one block from Horton Plaza (savvy parkers know what’s up). There’s no need to flutter from store to store when a handful of local boutiques present their latest looks here. And as you rack up the latest threads, sip on drinks and nibble on bites from a variety of restaurants including Brick+Mortar. Recharge with spa treatments and manicures provided by Va-Va Varnish.
Vendors participating in this year’s Keating Experience include Kandals, a unique line of scented, earth-friendly shoes; Mia Brazilia, Brazilian Fitness Wear; Bloom San Diego, the energetic East Village boutique; LouLou Bijoux, chic European jewelry (main image) and many more.
