Built in 1939, this open-air complex in the Seaport District originally served as the San Diego Police Headquarters.

After renovations to the Spanish-Revival structure, dispatch rooms and jail cells have given way to high-end restaurants and shops. Simply called The Headquarters, tenants including Pizzeria Mozza, Venissimo Cheese and Dallmann Fine Chocolates open doors this month. Not a bad place to get locked up. 789 W. Harbor Dr., S.D.; theheadquarters.com.
