Relaxed neighborhood hangout in South Park. Pool tables, tap handles hanging from ceiling, and you can order burgers and wings from the back. Extensive bottle selection and choice taps. Don't expect to have a conversation here, the music is pretty loud. Fortunately the music is pretty good. This is the sort of place you can bring your dog if he/she likes noise and crowds.

Fairly small, dingy/divy, and when I was there on a Saturday night, it was a surprisingly mixed crowd by age, gender, ethnicity, level of hipster quality, etc. Good to very good tap lists...but they had Pliny, so....

Everything is great, except seating. My favorite place to indulge.

Without a doubt my favorite bar in San Diego. Just great vibes all around. Respectful and attentive bartenders. The food choices/prices are reasonable being this is ass deep in hipsterville. The drink prices could be better and often times the beer selection is over the top IPAs or beers that are just plain St. Archer quality. Love the shuffleboard and pool tables. Bar is kind of small but cozy. Can get packed and for that matter real difficult to find a place to sit. Music quality is top notch and often times late at night the bartenders will throw cool movies on the tube. Kind of a pain to get to but worth it. Thumbs up also for doing a good job listing the tap lists online.
