Check their events calendar, which often includes trivia, live music, and even painting classes. Grab a local beer or a glass of wine, and you will be set for the night.


A local favorites, Waterfront Bar and Grill has been around since 1933, making it San Diego’s oldest tavern. The drinks are strong, the food is good, and the crowd is friendly. This dive bar is ideal for a low-key birthday celebration, but keep in mind, it gets packed Friday and Saturday nights.

The handcrafted cocktails will excite you and the food will blow you away, in both presentation and taste.

If good Italian food and good atmosphere are at the top of your must-have list, this is the place for you.

Music Box

This newer Little Italy spot regularly holds concerts and special events. It spans three different levels, and each floor has its own unique design that overlooks the stage below. Music Box also serves food, offers VIP service, and can be rented out for private events.
