Dive Bar of the Month Club
“Strangers are just friends you haven’t had a drink with yet.”
Check out a new Dive Each month
Anyone over 21 is welcome to join us as we explore new bars around San Diego county.
Meet New Friends
There’s no secret handshakes to learns. There are no membership fees or sign-up fees. You only pay for what you drink.
We never have a bad time
It’s statistically impossible to have a bad time at a dive bar with us. So if you need some happiness in your life, you should definitely join us.
Did we mention fun?
Dive Bar of the Month is designed with only two purposes in mind: to bring like minded Dive Bar lovers together and to have fun. We succeed on both of those goals.

May Dive Bar of the Month
Plan now to join us!
Thanks to everyone who made it out to Lancers last month! We packed the place and had a great time.
This month will be the 5th stop on the 13th Anniversary Dive Bar Tour, and we’re heading to a bar that we haven’t been to as a group in 11 years: CJ’s Club.
Sandwiched between a Jack in the Box and Sushi Deli #1 on West Washington Street, CJ’s is housed in a building that once was a candy store.
CJ’s is a small, comfortable neighborhood dive bar that features a small front patio, a full bar inside, with a beautiful stained glass underwater scene behind the cash register.
One side of the room houses the bar; the other is home to a few booths. There’s a digital jukebox and a few TVs, friendly bartenders, and happy regulars.
Like all great Dive Bars, CJ’s is CASH ONLY, and they don’t serve food. (Ok, they have short cans of Pringles for sale, but that’s it.)
We can’t wait to bring Dive Bar to CJ’s again (eleven years is a long time between visits!)
Plan now to join us on Wednesday, May 24th, starting at 6 p.m.
CJ’s is CASH ONLY. They have an ATM on site in case you need $$$.
FOOD: CJ’s doesn’t serve food. But there are a lot of places nearby to eat or to pick something up and bring it in. Jack in the Box is next door, as is Sushi Deli #1. Down the street, you can find the Mediterranean Cafe, Bronx Pizza, Panda Express, and more.
PARKING: All parking is street parking. Make it easy on yourself and take a ride share or take a bus or ride a bike.
REMINDER: If you pre-ordered Dive Bar Anniversary T-shirts, they will be available for pick-up at CJ’s that night.
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.
