Bars and Lounges

As diverse as the neighborhoods that surround them

From upscale to dive bars - find your perfect watering hole

San Diego's bars are as diverse as the neighborhoods that surround them and a great place to sip and socialize with locals. In North Park and South Park you’ll find a hipster crowd and great streets to graze appetizers, find craft beer on tap and enjoy live music. Downtown is known for rooftop bars, sexy underground lounges, and high energy nightclubs while Hillcrest caters to the LGBT crowd.  Along the coast, Pacific Beach and Mission Beach are haunts for 20 somethings while La Jolla and North Coastal offer a more laid back vibe. Throughout the county you’ll find craft breweries, wine bars, dive bars, sports bars, bars that specialize in craft cocktails and bars serving great food. If you don’t know where to start, sign up for a bar crawl or beer and wine tour and let a local show you around. Browse below to find your perfect watering hole.
