Our Story


Since 1997, Tavern has burst its seams as a prime nightlife destination in one of the most historic buildings known to coastal Pacific Beach.

about-tavern-at-the-beachNow, this renovated, bar and eatery has stepped up its game even further to accommodate the discriminating palates and playful desires of locals and visitors alike. Located on the corner of Garnet and Everts, you’ll find industrial-styled garage doors opening up to a street-side patio, welcoming subtle ocean breezes and lively conversation. Inside, a massive central bar spans below The Tavern’s rustic open beamed ceiling, inviting a vibrant setting for toasting to another perfect day at the beach.

Located only blocks from the sand, the Tavern’s vibe is coastal-cool, and we certainly have the libations to pull it off. Our brilliant selection of 30 draft handles is certain to lift your spirits. Or sample from the extensive boutique bourbon offerings we feature. Still thirsty? Try a hand-crafted cocktail or local brew to fire up your night.

We’ve taken care of your appetite too, relying on the expertise of one of San Diego’s top chefs. He calls it German Coastal, but you’ll probably be satisfied with “best at the beach.” Our full-blown menu features top quality local ingredients and reflects a celebration of the hearty flavor of pretzels for starters, requiring equally rugged pairings perfected with the spicy delicacy of mustard and the hoppy decadence of beer.

It’s Always a Party

Specials on shots and beer are always a part of the line-up at the Tavern. Sip and dine in front of one of our 42 HD TVs as you take in a game with the guys, cut loose to the beat of a live DJ, or meet up with someone special and make it a night to remember. We even offer kegs to kick-start your own private party, where you will be able to offer custom menu choices with the help of our friendly staff.

Tavern is what a “good time” is all about.
