Donovan's Circle of 5ths
A pillared cavern devoted to musical entertainment, the contemporary industrial interior of Circle of 5ths has taken over the old Bondi space and now boasts dark wood & leather furnishings matched against eclectic surrealist and abstract art, as well as a series of small, intricate metal sculptures of musicians. Donovan's is sure to be able to impress guests of all kinds, so for those that are looking for a venue to hold a special event, Donovan's is where you want to look! Great for weddings, cocktail parties, birthday parties, corporate events and more! With an unlimited range of entertainment acts, such as comedians, DJs, ensembles, singers, etc, your guests are sure to be delighted that they came to your special event.
With nightly live music, dining excellence and quality above all, Circle of 5ths is guaranteed to be an experience unlike anything else you’ll find in San Diego. Every night, Donovan’s Circle of 5ths hosts a diverse array of ever-changing live musical performances. The 4pm-8pm slot will be filled with instrumental "happy hour background music" such as flamenco guitar and sax and will give way to livelier fare like Motown, jazz, and battles on the dueling "Slam Grand" pianos later in the evening.
Setting aside the spanning musical repertoire, Circle of 5ths twin wood-topped bars serve up cerveza standards, 25 varieties of wines by the glass, a whopping selection of 42 whiskeys, and a martini-focused specialty cocktail menu, stretching from the margarita-in-witness-protection "Behind the Grind", to the vodka/peach/basil "Hit on all Sixes.” As for music for your mouth, expect share-able "heavy bites" ranging from Yellowtail with Baby Beets to Prime Filet Philly Cheesesteak.
