Reviewed 7 January 2014

Great bar with character. Don't need to be a local to fit in, everyone is welcome. Unpretentious and while people call it a dive bar it's pretty nice for a dive. Bartenders are cool, people are all easygoing and the party ramps up at night. Also...It's a Niners bar! Full sound with flags flying each Sunday. Better than typhoon because it's less bro-ish which makes it the best Niners bar in San Diego. Great swag too....

Not for the faint of heart.. this is a true dive bar... But the bartenders are social and it seems easy to chat with other patrons. Tuesday night is goldfish racing... I cannot tell you how much fun that is!... No harm to the fishies.. it is essentially racing them in acrylic tanks... and it is as much naming your fish and talking to other competitors... might be one of my favorite things I did on vacation in San Diego...

Guess the place has had a rough reputation under other owners... but stiff drinks, fun times.. why not step into some dive bar fun!
