‘Tis the season to be jolly and San Diego is ringing in the festivities with a spectacular holiday showcase – Peppermint Beach Club at Westfield UTC. As the premier outdoor lifestyle destination in the heart of San Diego, Westfield UTC has transformed into a winter wonderland, blending the magic of the North Pole with the laid-back charm of the California coast. This year, Santa, Mrs. Claus and their team of elves have decided to take a well-deserved break before the hustle and bustle of their big toy delivery night and what better place to unwind than the picturesque Peppermint Beach Club? It’s the perfect holiday setting for families, friends, visitors and locals to revel in the holiday spirit, San Diego style. 

Peppermint Beach Club offers guests a variety of retailer pop-ups, including Gepetto’s Toys, Sun Diego and just arrived brands to UTC like Alice & Olivia, alongside fan-favorite snowfall, visits from Santa, Mrs. Claus and the Elves, and a festive DJ. Unwrap the magic at Peppermint Beach Club through the following activations: 

  • Santa’s Villa – Kick off the festivities with a visit to Santa’s Villa located in Palm Plaza. The doors are open from now until December 24, inviting you to capture the essence of the season with a festive photo alongside Santa himself. For an extra touch of holiday magic, bring your furry friends for Santa Paws photos offered on December 4 and December 11, happening from 4-7 pm. Reservations are highly recommended to ensure you secure your spot and can be made by visiting here.
  • Queenstown Bistro – For a culinary journey that complements the resort ambiance of Westfield UTC, indulge in the delectable offerings at Queenstown Bistro, Peppermint Beach Club’s resident dining locale. Savor the seasonal menu, including a themed cocktail selection and the beloved Holiday Sandwich, featuring turkey, brie, stuffing, gravy, and cranberry jalapeno relish on sourdough. Complete your meal with a classic Hot Cocoa in both boozy and non-alcoholic variations.
  • Gift-Wrapping Station – Ease the holiday stress and wrap up your gift shopping at the convenient gift-wrapping station near Nordstrom, between Lucid Motors and Design Within Reach.

  • Holiday Ice Skating – Embrace the winter wonderland vibes with all-day ice skating at UTC Ice Sports Center, running from December 16 to January 2. It’s the perfect way to cap off your day at Peppermint Beach Club with family and friends. This year, a new addition is the complimentary skate-tying station, where trained staff will assist in lacing up and tying your ice skates, ensuring a seamless and enjoyable experience on the ice.
  • Gift With Purchase – As a token of appreciation, spend $250 in same-day purchases at any Westfield UTC shop or restaurant and receive a Hydrate and Nourish Travel Kit courtesy of Peppermint Beach Club’s presenting sponsor, Fiji Airways.
