PP's got creative libations that take full advantage of a stock of over 50 bitters. Add in that their 46-tap set up also pours draft cocktails, craft sodas, and even a few spirits, and you've got the makings of a memorable-if-you-weren't-drinking-so-many-cocktails evening.
Named after Herman Hamilton, a member of the illustrious Montford Point Marines, Hamilton's Tavern is the oldest beer and wine-licensed location in San Diego. The folks at this South Park alehouse want patrons to feel right at home while picking through their super-extensive beer list, which features more than 200 different bottles and a rotating selection of suds on 28 taps.
One day might not be enough to fully enjoy everything Green Flash Brewery has to offer. Take a private or public tour of the brewery (complete with guided tasting) or just relax in the warehouse-style tasting room. And if you want some fresh air while sipping suds, take advantage of the outdoor garden area that's food truck-adjacent.
In a city with its fair share of breweries, Ballast Point manages to distinguish itself. Not only does it offer a wide variety of beers for every brew patron's palette, it also concocts its own in-house spirits. Originality is the name of the game here and you'll find some distinct and exotic flavors that no other brew crew can duplicate.
Mediterranean cuisine with lots of good wine pairings.
Getting stung has never been so fun. Stingaree offers a luxurious and exciting experience in an atmosphere on par with the most prominent clubs in San Diego. There are three levels -- each of which offers a different atmosphere and ambiance -- and the cherry on top is literally the top. The rooftop area offers an incredible view, sleek decor, and comfortable quarters.
Munch on braised beef short rib and Portuguese garlic shrimp at this resto on Lamont. The cocktail list features inventive tipples like the Mr. Chow, with gin, sake, cucumber, lime, and a dash of sriracha.
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.
