Where to Grab a Drink in San Diego Right Now

San Diego’s first absinthe bar and restaurant, Wormwood, brings a brand new drinking and dining adventure to University Heights. The brainchild of Tahona Bar founder Amar Harrag, Wormwood showcases more than 30 absinthes sourced from Europe, New York, Louisiana, and other distilleries, and like Tahona, Wormwood will also be a place of education about this mysterious, often misunderstood spirit. Enjoy absinthe in the traditional fashion of early 20th century Paris, served from slow-drip fountains with a cube of sugar, or choose from a cocktail menu showcasing revisited absinthe classics as well as a selection of non-absinthe drinks. Shareable entrees and small plates feature French influences, updated for modern tastes and including luxurious dishes like caviar served with a sea urchin flan and eggplant creme fraiche, or confit de canard over Parisian gnocchi, banana vinegar beurre blanc, parsnips, and peanuts.
