Inspired by San Diego's appreciation for craft beer and craving for fresh, creative cuisine, Union Kitchen & Tap is uniquely suited to provide guests with the best of both worlds. Located in the heart of San Diego's Historic Gaslamp Quarter, Union Kitchen epitomizes the Southern California lifestyle with great music, a stylish yet relaxed atmosphere and of course, a full suite of 35 craft beer selections. Our relentless pursuit to showcase San Diego's finest craft beers and premium whiskey brands is evident upon entering the front door.
The Union vibe is an endearing combination of industrial age charm and effortless sophistication, boasting impressive surroundings of rustic reclaimed wood elements and rough-hewn metal accents. The contemporary furnishings seamlessly meld refined and rustic, with contemporary and vintage. Union Kitchen is located steps away from the San Diego Convention Center and many downtown hotels & resorts. For folks who stroll by the expansive warehouse style doors, the main dining room and whiskey bar welcome all who pass to step into Union's inviting interior and savor the tantalizing scents.
Executive Chef David Mango has created an award winning menu that is an unmatched farm to table culinary experience using fresh organic herbs and vegetables, natural, hormone free beef and fresh, locally caught seafood selections. The menu is teaming with tasty surprises, combining New American cuisine with southern comfort inspiration. Highlights include Shrimp & Grits, Carolina Blue Crab Cakes, Pan Seared Boston Scallops and CAB Prime Filet. For those who crave something more casual, the Union Brant Beef Burger is an unparalleled, life altering experience. No matter what you are yearning for, a visit to Union Kitchen is not complete without savoring one of our signature Flatbreads, including the Poached Fig & Laura Chanel Goat Cheese and the Prosciutto, Farm Egg & Rocket Flatbreads.
Union Kitchen is open for lunch and dinner daily and we feature live entertainment for brunch on Saturdays & Sundays. Late night grooves on Wednesday through Sunday evenings with live music and/or top local DJ's.
Union Kitchen & Tap was designed to be a social hub for the downtown community. Our philosophy is to embrace a return to simpler times when friends, neighbors and visitors gathered to catch up, relax and reconnect over a cold beer and an uncomplicated meal. It isn't any surprise that Union Kitchen & Tap received the 2013 Open Tables Reviewer's Choice Award. We look forward to seeing you on your next visit to San Diego!
