From beach-side to rooftop, there's plenty of watering holes around town.

San Diego's bar scene offers a delectable variety of flavors and vibes. From casual dives and lively pubs, to sultry wine bars, exclusive speakeasies and coveted tequila tastings, you're sure to find a bar stool or private booth that fits your mood and spirit.

San Diego mixologists take their craft seriously. Whether it's a cocktail served up by mustache-adorned gents that mix up your favorite spirit with house-made organic bitters, or a fresh draft pour of the latest Double I.P.A from a local brewery, San Diego's spirit scene bubbles with innovative, exciting and interesting creations.

Beyond what is served up in a highball or martini glass, San Diego bars often offer lively entertainment. From live performances and DJ's, to open mic night or karaoke with a live band behind you, be ready to mingle in some fun and meet some friendly people.
