The Famed Weissmuller Pool

Your Neighborhood Pool in North Park San Diego

  • LafayetteD4-29_EDIT_JORGPHOTO

At 65 years old, 600,000 gallons, and almost 50 meters long, the Weissmuller Pool is a Southern California attraction in and of itself. The pool is rumored to have been designed by former Tarzan and not so shabby swimmer Johnny Weissmuller in 1946. But the legends don't end there. In the 1940's while training here for her then record breaking swim across the English Channel, San Diego native Florence Chadwick noted the "Olympic pool" is actually two inches shy of the official length. Well, it turns out one of the boards was placed incorrectly as they poured the terrazzo. We promise you won't even notice.

Today the pool is continuously voted as one of the best in San Diego, remaining a top draw of the hotel and neighborhood. Over recent years the pool’s popularity has exploded, making it a summertime Mecca for locals and even LA residents looking to unwind. In fact, people love the pool so much that it now plays regular host to DJ's, bands, and events on a regular basis.

For the right price, we'll even allow you to use it for pretty much any type of event imaginable. Interested? Drop us a line here.

Rip Carson

"Rip Carson formed his first band at the age of eleven in West Virginia. He was influenced by his uncle who also played in a rockabilly band known as "Bill Sykes and the Rhythmeers." This early influence and the fact that he has been singing since he was born have helped him be constantly on the rise in today's rockabilly scene."

"For anyone that has seen him play, they know that Rip Carson's stage presence is one of the wildest in history. Rip Carson accounts for this by saying ' when I hear the music it makes me insane, it is the original devils music. It is just as savage and shocking as it was when it was first introduced.'"

Rip Carson will be performing at The Lafayette on the following dates:

• Sunday May 4, 2014
• Sunday May 18, 2014
