Go for a beer, stiff gin and tonic, or perhaps just one amazing glass of wine. Meet friends, make new ones or impress a date. Whatever your craving or reason, San Diego's bar scene specializes in variety.
Topping our list is the unique speakeasy, Noble Experiment, that intimately seats 32 people for mind-blowing cocktails and service. That is... if you can find the secret door.
The tried and true The Aero Club has been a favorite among locals for many years. The famous wall of liquor is a dream come true for whiskey lovers especially, as it holds over 800 different types. It looks like a dive bar from the outside and many locals classify it as such, but the drinks are reasonably priced, the service is friendly, and the reviews positive.
Up north in Encinitas, a completely different vibe awaits at Union Kitchen and Tap. It's swanky with gourmet bar food and craft cocktails made with the finest ingredients available. Locals argue that it's just what the area needed: a nice neighborhood establishment where people can enjoy a good drink, people watching and delicious food.
So, let's get down to business. Here's a list of San Diego's 10 best bars. Cheers!
