An intimate little speak easy hidden away behind another bar. Look for the door of kegs! Great cocktails and very knowledgable mixologists. Be prepared to wait for a seat if you don't have a reservation, which is not a problem, just take a seat at the adjoining Neighbourhood bar/restaurant.

Okay I guess you have to go if youre in San Diego and you have been lucky enough to get a booking, but really? Felt as though we were about to go on a Disney horror ride and were in the pre-room. Great cocktails though, not cheap.

Been here a few times and it is fun getting in thru the keg wall. However Saturday you needed a reservation or it was an hour wait with no guarantee. Decided to walk over to the Prohibition on 5th, they have live music and great drinks. Better choice. Only go here if it is not crowded and you like cocktails.

Tried booking a reservation in advance ( three weeks) at first the date wasn't open and once it opened it somehow filled up within a matter of what seemed minutes! We got in around 930, put our name and number in and had a few rounds of drinks at the adjoining bar ( very cool decor,vertical gardens and look up... More

great bar! Good drinks, good crowd, great friends, what more do you need?? Also, very sanitary, both the bar AND restrooms. Make sure you attempt to open the correct door, so you don't look like a kook right off the bat.

We had to wait over an hour for a table, but it was so worth it. The hostess went above and beyond with making us comfortable. The drinks are very high quality. I'm so glad we made it there on our quick San Diego weekend! And the wait went quickly with drinks at the Neighborhood. Definitely worth it!

I didn't have a reservation, highly recommended. But I was able to get in after putting our names on the list and waiting about 45 minutes. Excellent bartenders and very friendly hostess. If you have a favorite liquor, I suggest 'rolling the dice' and letting the bartender give you their favorite concoction with your base liquor!

Let's start with the fun in finding this place and the hidden door. It's literally like being a little kid...finding the hidden door, pushing your way through, and seeing what's behind. I loved it! Ok, now...Adele was the bartender the night that we went. She wasn't your typical "bartender." She is like a mixologist. She was seriously the bomb. I... More
