Happy hour: Tuesday all day; Wednesday–Thursday and Sunday, 4–6 pm
Housed in the old Oceanside Blade-Tribune and News building, Blade 1936 offers modern takes on Neapolitan cuisine, along with stunning ocean views. Sip house wines for $7.50, alongside shareable bites like Margherita Pizza and Arancini Siciliani for $8-$12.
Blade 1936 is a welcome addition to Oceanside’s rapidly emerging dining scene. Located in the same building that housed the former Oceanside Blade-Tribune newsroom, Blade 1936 pays homage to the heritage of America’s Finest City (with authentic retro newsprint covering the walls), while offering a modern take on Neapolitan-style Italian cuisine just a few blocks from the pier. Wood-fired pizza with rooftop ocean views will never not be good.
How to book: Walk-ins are accepted if seating is available.
