The Best Pacific Beach Bars

1. JRDN at the Tower23 Hotel

If you like a fabulous ocean view and delectable dining with your cocktails, the fancy JRDN at the Tower23 Hotel is a great place to start your evening. Watch surfers catch waves by the pier while you enjoy a specialty cocktail and live music.

2. PB Shore Club

With one of the best views on the boardwalk and a fabulous rooftop patio, PB Shore Club remains a local favorite. Famous for their large goblets of Red Bull vodka slushies, they also keep the kitchen open late, so you don’t have to drink on an empty stomach.

3. Bubs @ the Beach

For a casual night out, you can’t go wrong at Bubs @ the Beach. Cheap drinks, eats, and a fun jukebox keep the party going. Be sure to try the Garbage Wings and the Cinna Fun Pretzel for dessert! If there’s a game on, you’re likely to catch that here, too.

4. Tavern at the Beach

A favorite of college kids and young professionals, the Tavern is a fun place to grab drinks and even bust a move on the dance floor. Taps on the walls allow guests to serve themselves a wide variety of craft beers. Tavern is known for their gourmet pretzels and happy hour!

5. Lahaina Beach Club

Excellent views, delicious drinks, and great fish tacos make Lahaina Beach House a Pacific Beach staple! Be sure to bring your cash, though, because they don’t take credit cards. But if you forget cash, don’t worry – an ATM is also on-site.

6. Backyard Kitchen & Tap

Backyard Kitchen & Tap gastropub is so popular, you’ll want to arrive early to avoid waiting in line. But the wait will be worth it! Outside, you’ll find three cabanas, fire pits, live music, and an indoor/outdoor bar. The specialty foods and drinks make Pacific Beach Backyard a place you’ll want to visit again and again!
