Black Swan Gondola Presents Black Rose | A VIP Experience

Have you heard about the hardest to get into Speakeasy in San Diego? The Black Swan Gondola Company presents Black Rose, an exclusive premium experience unlike anything else on the market.


This isn’t your typical speakeasy in the normal sense. This qualifies as a speakeasy because not only do you need to have the secret password to get in, but you also have to test your luck to even find out WHEN you can be let in. Every one of these premium experience gondola rides is available to be booked on a random rotating schedule with no warning as to what time or day it will pop up or switch to next. It appears, and can disappear in a blink of an eye. (Our only hint… @blackswangondola!)


All Black Rose gondola experiences come with an exclusive host for the evening. Your host will be one of our Master Gondoliers, often our owner, who takes you out for an unforgettable adventure filled with an array of accoutrements. This isn’t one of our traditional Gondola rides… this specific ride will satisfy the tastebuds!


From delectable small bites, to us sharing our favorite mouth watering wine, and even you finding a special surprise floating in the middle of the lake, we will make your date night magical. Due to the custom nature of these speakeasy rides we only do a select few a month. Extremely limited availability. San Diego, please join our waitlist using the form to get started!

Why Black Rose?


Black roses are loved for their mysterious yet elegant appearance. They were used as a symbol within the Sicilian mafia to send a hidden message that could not be detected. It is this secrecy that symbolizes the nature of our Premium Experience, creating an intimacy of the unknown that must be witnessed first hand.


The black rose can symbolize many different events and the context of how it is used shows what the person intended to communicate. While many consider it a dark symbol, we use the black rose for the other side of its’ meaning, as a symbol of new beginnings. A gift for you or a special someone starting a new chapter in life.


The Black Rose VIP & Premium Experience in San Diego CA presents a secretive new experience, unique to you and your desires. We invite you to join us to start a new tradition or new beginning of your own.


Prices Starting at $500


Please Note: Extremely limited availability. Due to their custom and exclusive nature, we ask that Black Rose premium experiences be scheduled a minimum of two weeks in advance to ensure optimal planning. Some exceptions can be made, but please note that all of the options may not be available if scheduled inside of two weeks. Must be 21 & Over.
