5 Ways to Spoil Dad this Father’s Day at Del Mar Plaza

Father’s Day is coming up, and this year, we think you can do a little better at thanking him for his love and support than buying him another tie and Dad-joke-filled card.

With so many fun and exciting activities at and around Del Mar Plaza, there are plenty of options of things to do with Dad that’ll remind him of how much he means to you. Here are a few ways you can spoil him and make sure he feels like a king this Father’s Day.

Help him taste test a few cocktails

Pacifica Del Mar’s Ocean Bar features more than 100 of the world’s finest vodkas. Even if Dad is more of a beer guy, we’re sure he’d welcome a change to his usual beverage if it’s substituted by a delicious cocktail. Ask the bartender to whip him up something special, and don’t forget to order a few bar bites and oysters while you’re there.

Teach him the art of pampering

Set Dad up with an appointment at Haim LTD, Salon so he can get his hair cut or even colored. Then visit Del Mar Nails and Spa for a relaxing manicure and pedicure. Chances are, Dad doesn’t spend time pampering himself like this on a daily basis, which is why he’d appreciate this type of indulgence all the more.

Spruce up his wardrobe

There are several unique shops at the Plaza, so regardless of what Dad’s style may be, you’ll be able to find some clothing and accessories to help him upgrade his closet.

  • Gary’s Studio has a selection of bold, colorful, and sophisticated suits for men.
  • Urban Beach House has San Diego-branded items and beachwear (like shirts, hats, and sweatshirts) that’ll keep him feeling like he’s relaxing on the beach all year long.
  • Banana Republic has casual classics that’ll keep him sharp and well-dressed for any occasion.

Treat him to global cuisine

Whether it be Japanese food at Shimbashi Izakaya, Chinese cuisine at Rendezvous, or Italian dishes at Enoteca Del Mar and Il Fornaio Del Mar—you can basically take Dad on a trip around the world via his taste buds.

Spend some quality time together

No matter how you decide to spoil your dad, we’re sure he’ll simply enjoy spending time with you. Fuel up with breakfast or lunch at the Plaza, then go on a hike or hit the waves. Give Dad the option of how he’d like to spend his ideal day, and make his wishes come true. Spending time together under sunny Del Mar skies will feel more meaningful than another tie. Trust us—he has enough of those already.
