Queenstown Village

Orchid Icon  Orchid
  Interior Design

Integrating unique and whimsical designs, Queenstown Village features a variety of guest experiences. A cozy cocktail corner dubbed the Crystal Cove (a nod to La Jolla Cove) affords guests an opportunity to sit under a canopy of kelp and shimmering glass lanterns whereas the energized “Sheep-Easy”, a sleek lounge wrapped in dramatic drapery, hammered metal mirrors and Queenstown’s signature sheep floating overhead, provides a stimulating visual display. Moss covered with a massive, suspended floral and greenery filled chandelier, the expansive Grand Pavilion serves as the main dining room, featuring a mix of communal high top tables and oversized upholstered booths. Stilted Greenhouses with cascading orchids and oversized rattan porch chairs offer up quiet retreat, welcoming guests to relax and reflect on the delicate details and serene surroundings.

The exterior of the property features a welcoming, curbside café/bar veranda where locals and tourists alike can lounge amongst potted citrus trees and enjoy an alfresco meal, coffee or cocktail under colorful parasol umbrellas.

From a featured quote by San Diego’s own Dr. Seuss “Fantasy is a Necessary Ingredient to Living” to hanging fixtures adorned with abalone shells, to mirrors with graphic depictions of hops that reference the vibrant beer culture and the site’s past life as a brewery, the property infuses multiple hidden local references which pay respect to the history of La Jolla and the local culture.
