1. The Silver Fox 1833 Garnet ave, San Diego, CA 92109 (Pacific Beach)

Pool tables, darts, a leopard-print carpet, and good, cheap drinks define this no-nonsense dive. The Fox plays host to a varied crowd, but always keeps up a friendly, neighborhood vibe.

2. The Dog 4479 Everts St, San Diego, CA 92109 (Pacific Beach)

Free jukebox? Umm, yes please! And if you’re a fan of backwards baseball caps, rainbow sandals, and sleeve tattoos, well, you may just have a new best friend.

3. London's West End 5157 La Jolla Blvd, San Diego, CA 92109 (Pacific Beach)

Owned and operated by a young couple as fond of its spirits as the clientele it serves, London’s West End is a must for those looking to capture the quintessential surf bar experience. It’s a bit of a hike from PB’s bustling Garnett Ave, but you’ll be rewarded with good people and liberal pours.

4. Plum Crazy Saloon 1060 Garnet Ave, san diego, CA 92109

Because they have to put 'em somewhere, PC's inviting Philly fans to stay in the action via their 24 TVs, and cash in on $10 domestic pitchers, and $3 grape bombs/ cherry bombs/ screwdrivers/ bloodys, which is what Santa will be, if he happens to walk by a battery store while they're losing.

5. SD TapRoom 1269 Garnet Ave, San Diego, CA 92109 (Pacific Beach)

A great selection of beer and a list of West coast IPAs fit for even the snobbiest of hops aficionados. Make up the difference on pricier pours with $1 Street Tacos on Taco Tuesdays, or grab some quality pizza any day of the week.

6. Nite Owl Cocktail Lounge 2772 Garnet Ave, San Diego, CA 92109 (Pacific Beach)

Between its wood paneling, ripped bar stools, and leaky toilet seat, the Nite Owl has all the comforts of an abandoned Winnebago. Assuming you’re not a germaphobe though, there’s also plenty of charm.

7. Latitude 32 5019 Cass St, San Diego, CA 92109 (Pacific Beach)

PB’s white whale, Lat 32 is perhaps the only local bar where you’re likely to snag an actual table regardless of what time it is. It’s only open until midnight and it only serves beer and wine, but its modest prices and non-line-iness won’t let you down.

8. Cass St. Bar & Grill 4612 Cass St, San Diego, CA 92109 (Pacific Beach)

The longstanding local-fisherman's haven still houses the 1940's hardwood bar from the original watering hole, TVs strategically placed so there's nay a blind corner to potentially miss an Eric Weddle close-up, two pool tables still operating at a throwback 50c, free shuffleboard, and a rotating, $8.50 craft pitcher special during football games.
