1. Level 9 Rooftop Bar & Lounge 509 9th Ave, San Diego, CA 92101 (Gaslamp Quarter)

With a stunning view of Petco, Level 9 is great place to watch the game from afar or enjoy a unique view on nights when they have fireworks. Grab something from their great beer selection, or try a spicy margarita with jalapeño tequila for an extra kick.

2. The Blind Burro 639 J St, San Diego, CA 92101 (Gaslamp Quarter)

The crew at The Blind Burro treats diners to South-of-the-Border street food, including a grilled flour tortilla topped with cheese, tomatoes, and guac (it's like a Mexican pizza!). The space accommodates plenty of red-upholstered chairs and tables, and potted succulents that reference this restaurant's extensive tequila selection.

3. Tin Fish 170 6th Ave, San Diego, CA 92101 (Gaslamp Quarter)

With a sprawling back yard (and tiki bar!), some of the best fish tacos and fish & chips around, and sweet rotating drink specials, Tin Fish is a great spot to just hang out and relax, or catch a quick drink and meal on your way to the ballpark.

4. Basic 410 10th Ave, San Diego, CA 92101 (East Village)

This trendy East Village pizzeria and brewpub is serving pizza that's anything but basic: pies are super fresh and anything-but-simple. The quirky "Mashed" pie with mashed potatoes, bacon, and mozzarella, is a favorite. Converted from an old warehouse, this space boasts a 5,000 square foot lounge and restaurant, will a full bar and an open-air setup.

5. Mission Brewery 1441 L St, San Diego, CA 92101 (East Village)

Properly resurrected in '07 after a long break in the biz (say... since Prohibition), MB's just moved its old Chula Vista brew house downtown to a tasting room'd, wood-lined brick behemoth formerly known as the historic Wonderbread factory, which is just a short jaunt from PETCO, making it super convenient for you to drink in the brews, before you drink in the boos.

6. Tivoli Bar & Grill 505 6th Ave, San Diego, CA 92101 (Gaslamp Quarter)

A great Padres bar, Tivoli ramps it up a few notches with NINE hours of happy hour each day (12-7pm, and again 10pm-12am). Pair those $3 wells and domestic drafts with some of their wings and you're good to go.

7. Bub's at the Ballpark 715 J St, San Diego, CA 92101 (East Village)

With its close proximity to Petco Park, Bub's is a perfect spot to booze or dine before, during, or after a Padres game (so, any time). With numerous televisions and a basketball hoop to show off your razor-sharp (or boozily dull) free throw shot, it's a spot any thirsty sports fan can appreciate.

At 14,000sqft, this Tavern+Bowl has solid food and drink specials, pool tables and a whole freakin' bowling alley!
