Café Sevilla Releases Statement Regarding July Re-Opening and Reason for Delays

Saturday, June 25, 2011

It seems like everyone in San Diego is waiting for the new Café Sevilla 5th Avenue location to open so it is unfortunate to report that we will all have to wait just a little longer.  Why so many delays?  I was able to get an answer directly from Café Sevilla’s Facebook page that explains with some detail why the reopening is now slated for July and what some of the reasons are for the delay.  Below is the entire statement that Café Sevilla posted on their facebook page on Friday June 24th.

We know that good things come to those who wait, so we continue waiting for San Diego’s next best salsa club to hit our scene.  See you at the new Café Sevilla in July!

Cafe’s Sevilla Statement Regarding Re-Opening (June 24, 2011 at 4:50pm PST)


Due to unforeseen delays in the permitting process Café Sevilla will be unable to open it’s doors in time for the Grand Opening party scheduled for Wednesday, June 29th.

But why?

Doing business in the Gaslamp is both a priviledge and a challenge- the spotlight is not only on us, it is on the city and all organizations representing the city; we must all adhere to strict construction codes in order to ensure the safety of all of our guests while they enjoy the many activities offered in downtown San Diego.

But why is it taking such a long time?

All good things take time. When you walk in the door you’ll see why

and you will be amazed that it only took 9 months!

So when is the new party date?

Wednesday July 27

Why a whole month away?

Take a look at your calendar and maybe you’ll feel the same- July is a busy month for all of us! We have the Fourth of July holiday; American Idols is holding auditions at Petco Park this year- aren’t you going to audition? And then we have Comicon with its hundreds of thousands of attendees and exhibitors. So much happening, so much fun! Hopefully you will not be gone on your summer vacation come July 27th!

But really the whole month will be filled with grand opening celebrations! Stay tuned.

So what do I do if I already bought tickets?

All tickets purchased prior to June 24, 2011, will be honored on July 27, 2011. If you cannot attend, we will gladly and rapidly refund your donation. Please email with your information.

But when will Sevilla open?

Sevilla will open its doors as soon as all agencies grant necessary permits.

It will definitely be before July 27th, probably closer to the beginning of the month.

If you want to be first to be notified we ask that you please visit our facebook page on a regular basis or sign up to receive our email newsletters.

Do you need to vent?

We totally understand… Please come chat with us on our facebook page. We do want to hear from you and we will promptly answer your questions. And who knows? You may yet be the next winner of a pair of tickets! Now we have lot’s more time, we will give away a pair every week until the new date!
