What is Anthology?

Anthology is the vision of Howard Berkson, real estate developer, who wanted to create a first-class space in downtown San Diego where he could combine his shared passions for live music and fine dining.

It was the influence of growing up in Chicago where every neighborhood had it's local spot to go and listen to great live music. This experience led Howard and Marsha Berkson to conceptualize and start working on bringing this vision to life in June 2007.

The primary audience of Anthology are music lovers. They want a casually sophisticated and comfortable place to gather, have a great cocktail, enjoy friends and an intimate upclose music experience with some of the finest artists in the world in Jazz, Rock, Blues, Latin, Indie and more. They also have great appreciation for Anthology as one of the finest built "music rooms" featuring the finest state-of-the-art sound system and perfectly tenuated acoustics. The Berkson's wanted to create more than just a venue, they envisioned a unique social environment that engages the guests, respects the artists, and is filled with culture and creativity... from first bite to final note.
