 Cafe Bar Europa, The Turquoise

San Diego’s Original Euro-Tapas and Jazz Bar

 We are SLOW FOOD, a place to relax and enjoy, good company, good wine and live music seven nights a week

“We reserve the right to refuse service to grumpy people in a hurry”

What We Are About:

My inspiration and vision of The Turquoise, Cafe Bar Europa, is to recreate the feeling of the small, local bars of southern Europe. 

Places where the people stop and gather, to hear the news, catch up with friends, relax and enjoy a coffee and a fine pastry or a small meal and a glass of wine.

They are found in the countries that border the Western Mediterranean Sea, that same sea which has been named since ancient times as the Turquoise Sea, a sea that meets and mingles all upon its shores with the real and mythical, joyous and jubilant, serious and serene.

Places where I saw more similarities than differences, and when seen as a whole, make up a region all its’ own. “The Lands of the Turquoise Sea”
