The Pacific Beach Bar Scene

What’s better than sipping sundowners at a hip and happening place right by the beach? If you’re at Pacific Beach, nothing can get better. For the most part, if you’re looking to mingle with locals from the younger crowd, and are looking for somewhere casual to wind down, you’re in the right place.

If you want to blend in with the locals, head down to The Duck Dive and check out the fries cooked in duck fat as well as some other gourmet foods. If you’re on a stricter budget, Crushed will help you stretch your dollars a bit with great prices and craft beer.

If you’re looking for an evening’s entertainment, stay put. A lot of the eateries in the area stay open late and offer a fun way to party until dawn.

Should you want something a little more relaxed, head to the Cass Street Bar and Grill. You’ll get to nosh on some delicious food and have the opportunity to test your skills at shuffleboard or pool.

If you love spicy Mexican food, go to PB Shore Club. If it were situated any closer to the beach, you’d have to swim to your table, so it’s the perfect spot to go to after a day in the sun. Also check out UC San Diego.
