Staying in a hotel near the San Diego Convention Center? After a long day at a conference sometimes the first thing you want is a drink, and the last thing you want is to stay in the same place you’ve been all day. Head out to one of these great happy hours and get to know a different part of the city.
Aero Club – Mission Hills
With more than eight-hundred glistening glass bottles of whiskey adorning the walls, this historical bar has a reputation for serving the best mixed drinks in the U.S.A. Antique memorabilia strung from the ceiling and deep booths welcome those who gather to enjoy the bar’s extensive menu while listening to a classic jukebox. Happy hour is from 2pm-7pm daily and Aero Club is a super short Uber ride from any Little Italy hotel.
Baby Cakes – Hillcrest
For visitors with a sweet tooth, this bakery and bar combo is a nice spot for cupcakes and cocktails. Baby Cakes boasts a 1,000 square foot patio with tables and seats surrounded by flowers and greenery. Friday specials are from 4pm-9pm and happy hour is from 5pm-8pm daily, including $3 drinks and $5 food plates.
The Silver Fox Lounge – Pacific Beach
Although the leopard print carpet of this dive bar may be off-putting for some, it has been serving happy guests since 1980. There are three pool tables and free pool is offered 4pm-6pm M-F. Eight televisions, pinball machines, various videogames, darts, a jukebox and a laidback atmosphere set this gathering spot apart from others. Its 80’ bar serves a $2 bottle beer of the month daily and happy hour is from 6am-10am and 4pm-7pm everyday. If you head over, though, keep in mind it’s cash only.
Young Hickory – North Park
With simple community-sized tables, free Wi-Fi, lots of power outlets, and a laidback ambiance, this spot mostly attracts studying students. The music is relaxing and the volume level caters to people who enjoy actual discussion. In addition to great coffee, there are over thirty craft beers on the menu, which changes periodically. All beers are served in a can and happy hour is from 5pm-7pm daily.
