The Headquarters San Diego – Shopping, History and more

fountainOne of my new favorite shopping centers in San Diego is The Headquarters located on Harbor Blvd. near Seaport Village. This center has several colorful fine restaurants, boutique shopping, artistic photography, artesian cheese and chocolate. It’s a match made in heaven for those who like the good things in life.  The Headquarters San Diego is located on Harbor Blvd. right by Seaport Village. The location is enjoyable for tourists and locals alike. What makes this place unique is that the shopping center used to be the Old Police Headquarters, a history that goes back to the late 1930’s. The unique architecture is primarily due to the history behind the buildings. For instance, Puesto, is located where the old file library and jail cell block used to be and PreFab, the new co-working/art/popup space used to be the old crime lab and courtroom. There is a presence of nostalgia that you can feel when you walk around of these buildings. If you do visit, let me know. I’d love to hear from you.

In Jail, just visiting.

In Jail, just visiting.

Make sure you: Visit the old jail cells and view museum relics ranging from historic badges to old mug shot photos located near the main bathrooms.

Stores and Restaurants not to miss: Aaron Chang Ocean Art Gallery, Kitson, lolo, Madison, Seasons 52, Puesto, Seaside Home, Venissimo Cheese, Verde, Simply Local and Dalmann Fine Chocolate Boutique.
