Where to Grab a Drink in San Diego Right Now
Neighborhood was way ahead of its time when it opened in San Diego’s East Village in 2007, before shutting for a massive renovation in 2019. But two years and $2 million later, the swanky spot has reopened with not one, but two “hidden” speakeasies within the walls. The first, Noble Experiment, launched San Diego’s reputation as a cocktail destination, and recently ditched the menu in favor of the bespoke model, where unique creations are individually mixed for each customer. Newcomer Youngblood adds to the mystique with a prix-fixe cocktail menu starting at around $65, as well as a collection of rare libations not likely to be found anywhere else. Hours vary for each venue; check the individual website for current day/times.
How to order: Reservations are required and can be made for Youngblood via OpenTable and for Noble Experiment also via OpenTable.
