RANDE GERBER’S MOONSTONE LOUNGE AND HARD ROCK HOTEL SAN DIEGO DIVE INTO SPRING WITH THE LAUNCH OF “INTERVENTION SUNDAYS,” SAN DIEGO’S HOTTEST SUNDAY POOL PARTY
San Diego, California –On April 6, Gerber Group’s Moonstone Lounge at Hard Rock Hotel San Diego will kick-off spring with the launch of Intervention Sundays, the most highly anticipated Sunday pool party to come to San Diego. The weekly event promises an exciting, entertaining and decadent atmosphere where visitors and locals alike can spend the last hours of the weekend partying at the hottest destination and event in the city.
Intervention Sundays at Moonstone Lounge is the ultimate San Diego-style adult playground with the unmatched vibe that only Gerber Group and Hard Rock Hotel can bring. Located on the 4th floor of the hotel overlooking San Diego’s thriving Gaslamp Quarter, Moonstone Lounge and the adjacent Woodstock Terrace transform into multi-faceted playpen for San Diego’s hippest movers and shakers.
Moonstone Lounge is a perfect oasis for a first-class summer bash offering a rooftop outdoor pool, gorgeous exposed bar, leafy palms, comfy pool-proof love seats, day beds and tricked out VIP cabanas available for the serious party-goer. With no shortage of eye-candy and endless voyeuristic people-watching, Moonstone Lounge will become the place to see and be seen. But the party doesn’t end with poolside lounging. While Moonstone servers dish out the lounge’s specialty cocktails, guests can also partake in a host of fun and flirty activities including ping pong, tetherball and more.
“We started thinking about hosting a really amazing pool party at Moonstone Lounge long before we even opened. And now, with Moonstone and Hard Rock working together, there will be no hotter party in town. The buzz has been insane – everyone is clamoring about this party,” said Rande Gerber.
The party extends from Moonstone onto the 8000 square foot Woodstock Terrace, where more than half of the concrete deck is laid with lush grass. The “Grassy Knoll”, surrounded by a multitude of chaise lounge chairs, offers deluxe hammocks, room on the grass to catch some sun and a modish set-up for a playful round of badminton. The hotel’s signature restaurant, Maryjane’s Coffee Shop, takes it to the roof with an impressive outdoor grill to serve up its classic Americana comfort barbeque, including specialty items like the Hot ‘n’ Tangy Pulled Pork sandwich. Adjacent to MJ’s Backyard Pool Grill, diners can grab a seat at one of the many retro-styled picnic tables. Rock Spa also shares residence at Intervention, under their own tent, providing select “mini-therapies”, including Reflexology, massage and sunscreen application.
As expected with any Gerber Group and Hard Rock event, the entertainment will be A-list only. Headlining the opening party will be LA and Las Vegas force, DJ Vice. The following week, April 13th, Cisco Adler, Shwayze and DJ Skeet Skeet perform. Other special appearances by guest DJs, celebrities and prominent party people are yet to be announced. Sponsors of Intervention at Moonstone Lounge include Bacardi, Grey Goose, Corralejo, VeeV, Budweiser and Von Zipper.
Intervention Sundays at Moonstone Lounge take place weekly, each Sunday, through the end of September. Hours of operation are from noon to sunset (7 p.m.). This is a 21 and over event. Admission to Intervention is $10 per person, but free for registered hotel guests. Cabanas and VIP seating are always in high-demand, so for those interested, book early by contacting Moonstone Lounge at 619.764 6923.
