About This Venue

True story: The warehouse-looking building on the end of Metcalf Street began life more than 100 years ago as an ice house where trains would roll in and pick up ice for transport. Many years later, in the 1980s, it would become an under-21-welcome club called the Distillery East, an extension of the original Distillery club in Solana Beach. The Distillery East begat, in this same edifice, another under-21 club called the Ice House, then Fusion, and now, under new ownership, Inferno Young Adult Nightclub. Interior remnants from Distillery East remain, including the big stages that can accommodate live bands or DJs, and the white-painted balconies on the third-floor level that offer bird's-eye views down at the strobe-and laser-lit throngs below.
