April Dive Bar of the Month:


Day Drinking at Peter D’s

(5149 Clairemont Mesa Blvd.)

Saturday, April 20th






April Dive Bar of the Month








Support Your Local Dive Bar!

Join us on Saturday, April 20th, starting at 2:00 as we head to Clairemont Mesa and do some Day Drinking at Peter D’s (5149 Clairemont Mesa Blvd.). It’s a classic neighborhood dive bar we’re excited to support.

Peter D’s has been around for 45 years. It’s at the end of a strip mall, squeezed between a Mexican restaurant (housed in an old Taco Bell building) and a Tax service.

It’s a comfortable, divey place, with a horseshoe-shaped full bar anchored by a small stage for karaoke at night or for showing baseball games during the day.

They have an outdoor patio of sorts, mostly for smoking. There is a funky “lounge” area with purple curtains, Christmas lights, and upholstered bar benches. They have two pool tables available and a digital jukebox.

Plan now to join us on Saturday, April 20th, starting at 2:00 p.m. (this is a great way to pre-game if you’re headed to the Padres that day.)

Cash or Cards: They take both

Food: They don’t serve food, but you are welcome to bring food in. There are a couple of places in the strip mall or just down the street.

Parking: There is free parking in the strip mall parking lot, which they share with a Smart & Final and a Liquor store. If that’s full, there is street parking. Or, play it safe and take a ride-share to join us.

Some of our recent bars

It’s a tradition to get our bartenders to hold our sign. Here’s where we’ve recently been.

We’re always open to hearing about bars we haven’t visited. Drop us a line if there is someplace you think we should check out.

“You can’t have a real country unless you have a beer and an airline — it helps if you have some kind of football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.”
