San Diego’s Best Beachfront Bars


San Diego Beach Bars

There’s nothing better than sipping a cool drink as the sun slides behind the palm trees and turns the sky into a postcard sunset as it sinks into the Pacific. Fortunately, San Diego offers many opportunities to enjoy a relaxing evening with breathtaking ocean views paired with local brews and craft cocktails. Should you ask the locals about the best places to go for such a sublime experience, these are the first 5 that they’ll recommend.

Cannon Ball

3105 Ocean Front Walk
San Diego, CA 92109

Cannon Ball is known for its laid back atmosphere and prime location for stunning sunsets, especially from restaurant’s rooftop bar. The bar’s location not far from downtown San Diego and its upscale atmosphere makes it a great spot for business travelers, as well as those in town for a convention. While the menu is varied, the full service sushi bar is sure to grab your attention with freshly prepared rolls and sashimi plates. Craft beers can also be had for $6, as well as specialty drinks and cocktails for $10. If you’re looking to try out Cannon Ball, learn more about affordable hotels near the SDCC and Mission Beach.

Sandbar Grill

718 Ventura Place
San Diego, CA 92109

This sports bar couldn’t possibly have better real estate. Located on the oceanfront just steps from Belmont Park, Sandbar is open from 9am to 2am daily and serves an excellent breakfast. The TVs are great for catching a game, and there’s always a spectacular view of the beach if things go South for the home team. The laid back sports like atmosphere also makes it among the favorites for those staying at nearby San Diego MCRD hotels. Stopping for a bite to eat? The bar’s fish tacos come highly recommended and the selection of draft beers is superb. Save a few bucks by hitting up the happy hour specials from 4pm to 7pm every weekday.

The Green Flash

701 Thomas Avenue
San Diego, CA 92109

The patio sits directly on the beach, making the Green Flash a top beach bar in San Diego. And what’s better – it’s as great of a place for drinks as it is for breakfast the next morning. If you’re working your way down the Pacific Beach, the Green Flash is the perfect place to stop for a quick meal. While all of the specialty drinks are delicious, they are known for their bloody mary. The tab can add up quickly if you’re not careful, but you get your money’s worth in scenery and service.

710 Beach Club

710 Garnet Avenue
San Diego, CA 92109

If you’re looking for oceanfront entertainment, there’s no better place to go than the 710 Beach Club. This place has everything. Live music, dancing, karaoke, open mics, trivia nights, Monday Night Football parties. Everything. The prices are good too, with drink specials available every day of the week. The only caveat – nominal cover charges on weekend evenings or when live bands are playing.

PB Shore Club

4343 Ocean Boulevard
San Diego, CA 92109

Popular music? Check. Beachfront location? Check. Wednesday night goldfish races? Double check (and watch out, these can get competitive). While the place can get crowded at night, it isn’t overwhelming. The clientele does tend to be younger, though. Case in point – the most popular drink in the house is the RedBull Vodka Slushie. However, before 8pm, the food gets rave reviews from people of all ages.

As you can see, there are a wide variety of options available for everyone looking to spend a San Diego evening on the Beach. Whether you’re looking for a great place for lunch or a nighttime, beachside hotspot, you’ll find some in the heart of San Diego.
