The Best Happy Hours in Downtown San Diego

By Mike in Things to Do with 0 Comments

Looking for a decent happy hour? From Little Italy to the Marina District, downtown San Diego has tons of bars and restaurants that offer great afternoon discounts where you can blow off a little steam after a long (or short) workday.

1. Prep Kitchen

Prep Kitchen serves Mediterranean cuisine in the heart of Little Italy. Enjoy the artsy decor while sipping fruity house-made sangria and chatting over tapas during their daily happy hour specials from 3 to 6 pm.

2. La Puerta

A true staple of the Gaslamp Quarter, La Puerta’s Monday happy hour gives you half off all drinks and apps from 3pm to close. Their Taco Tuesdays are also a big draw, where you can wash down spicy carne asada with a strong tequila cocktail or refreshing michelada.

3. Isola Pizza Bar

The nearby Isola Pizza Bar takes a different tack by focusing on, you guessed it, pizza. They’re also well-known for their “truffle fries” made out of garbanzo beans. For $10 during happy hour, you can get a glass of red and a pizza margherita for a quintessential Italian experience.

4. Stella Public House

Get small plates with a farmhouse feel at Stella Public House in East Village. Their twist on classic home-style dishes like porchetta mac and cheese pair wonderfully with fresh-poured draft beer during their 5 to 7 pm happy hour on weekdays.

5. Puesto

San Diego is famous for its top-notch Mexican street food, and Puesto at the Seaport is one of the reasons why. Get a taco for $3.50 and a margarita for $6 from 3 to 5 every weekday. Tuesday has the best discount, with tacos running $2.50 along with $3.50 Modelo Especial the entire evening, true to the spirit of street food.
