Silver Fox - 1833 Garnet Ave, 92109
Least expensive drink prices you'll find in PB aside from bringing your own flask in your boot.
This is a dive bar that makes you feel like you stepped back in time to the 1980's. Well, no you didn't, but you did step down a flight of stairs onto leopard print carpet.
Open Bar - 4302 Mission Blvd, 92109
Least expensive drink prices you'll find in Pacific Beach aside from the Silver Fox. Basically this is a dive bar with dancing near other bars so you can make this a stop on your bar hopping tour.
The Local - 809 Thomas Ave, 92109
Two-story bar that will have you paying double-digits for a shot of tequila and you may have to wait in line to get in and then wait in line to get upstairs. Double-digits, double-lines.
Shoreclub - 4343 Ocean Blvd, 92109
My personal favorite. Whoever is in charge of the music here, is a genius. Beautiful views of the ocean and great music if you like a variety of songs dating back to the 80's. No dance floor but you can dance where you're standing.
Duck Dive - 4650 Mission Blvd, 92109
Two words: Bottomless Mimosas.
On Saturday and Sunday from 9am - 3pm (and during the wk 10am-1pm) they serve bottomless mimosas for $17.50 which of course means this place is packed with 21-25 year old's during that time. They do also have other great specials and good food, as well as tv's for watching football on Sundays.
Moonshine Beach - 1165 Garnet Ave, 92109
Awesome if you like country music, line dancing, America, and/or girls in daisy dukes. Huge dance floor and live music most nights!
Warning: There is a $10 cover charge (or more if there is a concert) after 8pm, unless you go online, get on the list, and then arrive before 10pm.
The Duck Dive - 4650 Mission Blvd, San Diego, CA 92109
The Duck Dive in Pacific beach showcases local musicians for a laid back and as always entertaining people watching. On Wednesdays they feature Girls and Guitars and it has a ladies night out feel. The drinks are reasonable with a variety of draft beer and island drinks as well as a happy hour and a fun bar menu for snacking. It does allow for our four legged friends as well.
