Welcome Stella Public House and Halcyon


The restaurant duo, Stella Public House and Halcyon are expanding with new outposts in our very own “North City” destination across from CSUSM and next to Urge Common House. Stella Public House sources from local farms to create a wood-fired pizza eatery and craft beer tap room experience. This couples beautifully with Halcyon’s modern coffeehouse and cocktail lounge open from morning to night.

The restaurant venues suit the North City concept well with its walkable neighborhood environment located adjacent to campus. North City is a 204-acre, mixed-use community. Located on the ground floor of the recently opened, mixed-use Block C in North City, both venues will expand the brand that has well-established locations in Texas and California. Separate and distinct, the 2,812 square-foot Stella Public House and 1,709 square-foot Halcyon are situated across from one another and open to either side of the large Halcyon Lounge that also serves as the Block C entryway, creating a “lobby lounge.” Both of their storefronts open completely to the outdoor plaza with extended seating, creating a vibrant space of dining and interaction.

“We set our intention to become a community gathering place and we’ve done just that,” said John Long, co-owner of the venues. “The vision of the North City project is exciting to be part of – we are happy to be included in this new destination that will truly create a hub of everything our brands care about: community, quality design and sustainability.

Stella Public House and Halcyon will be located at Block C at North City; 250 N City Drive, San Marcos, CA 92078.
