Where to Grab a Drink in San Diego Right Now
A vegan/metal-themed bar and restaurant sounds suspiciously like a Portlandia sketch, but in real life, it’s a pretty kickass spot to grab a drink. With plenty of highly nerdy references serving as inspiration for Kindred’s cocktails—like “Sonic Death Monkey” from High Fidelity—the menu reads like one big inside joke that only the most culturally savvy guests will be in on. Still, with an award-winning Gothic-inspired interior, surprisingly delicious vegan fare, and plenty of skilled bartenders shaking things up, it’s an impressive and cherished spot in the quiet neighborhood of South Park.
How to order: Seating is on a first-come basis.
