SAN DIEGO -- San Diego is a beautiful city from all vantage points so why not host your next event at a venue that provides stunning views of some of the most picturesque areas in the region?
The Ultimate Skybox, located on the top floor of the DiamondView Tower, is a contemporary event space that has breathtaking views of the San Diego skyline, San Diego Bay, Coronado and Petco Park.
The venue is the perfect space to host an exquisite wedding, corporate meeting, client appreciation dinner, non-profit fundraiser, birthday party, rehearsal dinner, pre-game party, reunion, bat or bar mitzvah, or any other type of event.
The Ultimate Skybox is a modern facility in downtown’s newest building and includes on-site parking with valet service available, five flat-screen TVs, wireless Internet, floor-to-ceiling bay windows, a 12-foot-long outdoor fireplace, large bar area, built-in projector and screen, black out and mesh drop down shades, iPod hook-up, private event security, state-of-the-art lighting and sound system, designer lounge furniture and more.
The facility was built as a gathering space on the 15th floor of DiamondView Tower when the building was completed 6½ years ago. The venue is managed by Creative Affairs Inc., a local coordinating company that markets and sells the space to clients who wish to use it.
Amanda McPhail, who manages The Ultimate Skybox, recently spoke to SDGLN about the space. McPhail, who has worked in many fields of the service industry for the past 22 years, started Creative Affairs in 2004 and said she enjoys working with the San Diego community to showcase this venue.
