September Dive Bar of the Month








Join us at Old Town Saloon

This month we are headed to Old Town to revisit an old favorite, Old Town Saloon.

It’s the only Dive bar in San Diego located across from a haunted house (the Whaley House) which alone makes it worth stopping in for. The bar itself is unpretentious and welcoming (as a good Dive should be).

There are 3 pool tables, a bunch of televisions, a few wagon wheels for good measure (and decor), and of course, the sex toy/condom machines in the bathrooms. A rarely seen (but always enjoyed) Dive bar standard. Bring your quarters!

They have a full bar, 10 taps with monthly beer specials, and they always have $2 jello shots.

Plan now to join us on Wednesday, September 28th starting at 6 p.m.

Paying for drinks: Old Town Saloon takes both cash and credit cards. (There is an ATM on site.)

Food: They don’t serve food (other than bags of chips and jello shots). Feel free to bring food in or visit one of the many restaurants in Old Town before or after the event.

Identification: Old Town Saloon is strict about having your ID available. So, don’t be that person that can’t get into the bar because they left their ID at home.

Parking: One of the great things about Old Town is the availability of free parking lots. There is one north of the bar, between Harney Street and Twiggs, and another closer to Old Town State Park. Other than that, it is all street parking.


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.
