"Bull & Bourbon will bring an innovative approach to classic steakhouse cuisine," said Aldo Negrete, executive chef at Bull & Bourbon. "We will feature steaks cut from our in-house butcher program along with select cuts from our on-site aging room. The kitchen will come to life each night as we create a multi-sensory experience with steaks prepared from our custom wood burning grill paired with our hand-selected bourbon menu."

Elicit Bar & Lounge is a high-end cocktail lounge serving artisanal cocktails, craft beers, wines and Asian-inspired appetizers. Master mixologists create table-side concoctions using ingredients ranging from fresh juices to smoke and fire while live DJs provide the soundtrack.

Retreat Pool and Cabanas is an outdoor venue featuring two pools, an immense lazy river and an expansive pool deck furnished with oversized daybeds and cabanas. The poolside menu features seasonal bites and a full bar serving fresh mojitos, margaritas and champagne-infused cocktails.

Sycuan General Manager John Dinius said, "We were all familiar with Clique's successes in Las Vegas, but our collaboration to create venues true to San Diego is what will stand out most. Guests are going to love the unique vision for these spaces."

Representatives from Clique and Sycuan will be onsite for several Job Fairs to fill positions for these venues and more on January 15 and 16 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Sycuan and another round on January 21 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., January 22 from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. and January 23 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the US Grant Hotel in Downtown San Diego.
