Happy Hour: that transcendental space between drinking too early and drinking too much

Don’t let resident black cat Behemoth cross your path at City Heights’ Black Cat Bar.
Don’t let resident black cat Behemoth cross your path at City Heights’ Black Cat Bar.

Happy Hour: that transcendental space between drinking too early and drinking too much. We all know what it’s like rushing out of work early to catch discount suds at the local dive. Some of us do it daily. But I’m not here to tell you about just any old happy hour. None of that dollar-off Bud Lite or Coronita nonsense. Take my hand, thirsty one, as we embark upon a journey through downtempo tea time, tranny-oke, Tijuana stormtroopers, line dancing, entire pitchers of hard liquor, and into the great beyond. Close your eyes. Make a wish.

Place

El Dorado Cocktail Lounge

1030 Broadway, San Diego

El Dorado

Happy hour: 7–9pm, daily; 5–9pm, Fridays

Following suit with San Diego’s world-renowned craft beer culture, artisan cocktails have become a staple of local nightlife and, with them, the ubiquitous (if not cost-prohibitive) $10+ drink. This Gold Rush–era throwback lounge offers a taste of the high life at hoi polloi prices ’til 9 p.m. daily, when cocktails on the seasonal menu go for five bucks (normally $9). The winter selection includes sensations such as the Snow Globe (black rum, lemon, apple cinnamon syrup, bitters, egg white), the Ruby Buck (gin, lemon, ginger syrup, rhubarb bitters, soda), and the Nolita (gin, Campari, vermouth, coffee liqueur, mole bitters).

Place

Rook Bar

7745 University Avenue, La Mesa

The Rook

Happy hour: 5–7pm, daily

It was a sad day for uptown electronic music fans — not to mention inebriate chess aficionados ­— when Kadan closed its Czech castle doors last August to make way for bougie concept eatery Soda & Swine. Chris Heaney’s new venture, The Rook, continues the tradition of medieval board games and weaponry without, for better or worse, Kadan’s signature Eastern European oubliette ambiance. Sample organic tea from local importers The Whole Leaf at the monthly Experimental Tea Sessions (6–8 p.m., beers start at $2) to a soundtrack of ambient and downtempo music from Brokenbeat DJs WalkNasty and Her Majesty.

Place

Go Lounge

7123 El Cajon Boulevard, La Mesa

Want more? Take $2 you-call-its from 9–11 every Tuesday. In addition to monthly art shows, Go hosts cult movie Monday’s on the back patio, local music every Thursday with KPRI host Cathyrn Beeks, live bands on Fridays, and DJ dance parties on Saturdays.

Place

Redwing Bar & Grill

4012 30th Street, San Diego

Redwing Bar & Grill

Happy hour: 4–7pm, daily; all day Wednesdays

Famous for their surly, transgender karaoke starlets, Redwing is home to one of uptown’s finest drinking patios. Their specials are many, but highlights include $3 appetizers/wells/domestic bottles, $4 wings, and $5 burger/fries Monday through Friday (4–7 p.m.; all day Wednesdays); $.25 wings from 5 to 10 Mondays; dollar tacos from 5–10 and $3 Cuervo margaritas from 6 to close on Tuesdays; $3.50 tall boys Thursdays from 6 to 8 followed by trivia; $1.50 domestic drafts and $3 shot-of-the-day ’til 6 on Fridays; and $1 beers and $6 burger/beer from 2–6 Sundays.

Place

Black Cat Bar

4246 University Avenue, San Diego

Black Cat Bar

Happy hour: 5–7pm, Monday–Friday

Black Cat Bar is an endeavor of former Turf Club bartender Matt Parker, a self-proclaimed Halloween and Disney enthusiast whose penchant for the macabre led him to model the old Bank of America–cum-dive manor after the Happiest Place on Earth’s haunted mansion. Avoid crossing paths with the bar’s resident black cat, Behemuth, while boozing in the Addam’s Family’s living room to a jukebox soundtrack of eclectic oddities including ESG, Amon Düül II, and Os Mutantes. The spirits come out Monday through Friday, 5–7 p.m., when wells are $3.50 and Matt’s fetid martini goes for a five-spot.

Place

Effin's Pub & Grill

6164 El Cajon Boulevard, San Diego

Effin’s Pub & Grill

Happy hour: ‘Til late most days

If swarms of sorority brats and the occasional Brodo D. Baggins don’t bother you, this off-campus Irish pub is home to some remarkable food and drink specials: half-off cheesesteaks/pitchers ’til 10 Mondays, $1.50 tacos and $3 we-call-its ’til 11 Tuesdays, $.40 wings and $3 drafts Wednesdays, $1 sliders and $5 mini-pitchers ‘til midnight Thursdays, $5 burger/beer Fridays, $3 wells/tallboys ’til 11 Saturdays, and $.50 wings and $5 burger/beer Sundays. Effin’s 48 taps may leave suds snobs unmoved, but, as a Danny Jansen truism on the wall reads, “The best beer in the world is the open bottle in your hand.”

Place

Amplified Aleworks (at California Kebab and Beer Garden)

4150 Mission Boulevard #208, San Diego

California Kebab & Beer Garden

Happy hour: 3–6pm, Monday–Friday

A breath of fresh air for the debaucherous Neverland of PB, Cali Kebab caters to more refined sensibilities with an ocean view from their 1000-square-foot al fresco patio. Turn up the happy on weekdays from 3–6, when sides and most of the 23 taps are half-off, including selections from Societe, AleSmith, Ballast Point, and the in-house brewery, Amplified Ale Works. Specializing in Döner Kebabs and locally-sourced salads, this beachfront brew house is garnering prominence for their farm-to-table Sunday beer & bacon brunch (10–2, $20) with rosemary potatoes, a smoked-cheddar scramble, french-toast crostini, and four pairings.

Place

Pal Joey's

5147 Waring Road, San Diego

Pal Joey’s Cocktail Lounge

Happy hour: 4:30–6:30pm, Wednesday–Friday

Pal Joey’s cobblestone façade can be deceiving. Judging from the outside, you might think it’s just another strip-mall cesspool bumping elbows with a Foster’s Freeze, and, before it changed hands and got a makeover about five years ago, you’d be right. Now, Pal Joey’s, which may or may not be named after the 1957 love-triangle flick starring Frank Sinatra, Kim Novak, and Rita Hayworth, feels almost regal. Celebrity portraits peer out over the bar’s fixture post-prime clientele, who show up in droves for $3.50 personal pitchers (W–F, 4:30–6:30), karaoke, live bands, comedy, trivia, and goldfish races. That’s a real thing.

Place

Da Boyz Pizza & Pasta

2990 Jamacha Road #100, El Cajon

Da Boyz Pizza & Pasta

Happy hour: 2–6pm, and 9pm–close, Sunday–Thursday

Pizza and beer. They go together like North Korea and hollow threats. But, unlike the late Dear Leader’s bellicose rhetoric, Da Boyz in East County is, in fact, da bomb. And here’s why. Sunday through Thursday (2-6 and 9-close), select wines are $3/glass and a pint of brew goes for $2. Anything but a bluff, taps spit the usual domestics in addition to Red Trolley, Tower 10 IPA, and Da Boyz Pale Ale (it’s Redhook), all of which run at a non-menacing $1.50 all day on Tuesdays. Happy-time cocktails are $5, Jack/Fireball shots are $3, and appetizers are $4.

Place

Til-Two Club

4746 El Cajon Boulevard, San Diego

Owner Mick Rossler, of Tower Bar fame, restored City Heights’ Til Two Club to something like it’s 1940s glory days.

Til Two Club

Happy hour: 4–7pm, daily

Tower Bar owner Mick Rossler picked up this location (formerly the Beauty Bar) in 2010, restoring it as close as possible to the likeness of the original Til-Two Club circa 1948. Now it’s a friendly neighborhood hangout that comes alive many nights with Kim Gordon comedy, Beats Kitchen, and live rock and punk shows. Take advantage of the mellower evening, when you can chat with barmates over $3 well and pints including Guinness, Lagunitas IPA, Stone Pale Ale, and Green Flash IPA (4–7 daily). Cringing at inflated prices, un-happy drafts go for $4 and specialty cocktails start at $3.50.

Place

Hole Bar

2820 Lytton Street, San Diego

The Hole

Happy hour: Daily specials

Someone needs to give this do-ask-do-tell tropical hooch hut an award. A fierce contender for Happiest Hour Ever, the Hole completely redefines drink specials. Like, say, $2 wells, and $5 32-ounce well pitchers. Better yet are the anytime specials: mini pitchers of Long Island Iced Tea for $12, Yellowtail for $7, Coors and a Jäger shot for $7, and $2 well shots with beer purchase.

Place

Ruby Room

1271 University Avenue, San Diego

The Ruby Room

Happy hour: 5–8pm, Monday–Thursday; 5–9pm, Friday–Sunday

Not just a kick-ass neighborhood venue that books booming electronic nights, local diamonds-in-the-rough, burlesque shows, and just about everything in between, The Ruby Room is also a firm believer in imaginative drink specials. Their Rock N Roll happy hour runs Monday through Thursday (5–8 p.m.) with live ’60s, surf, and garage bands to accompany $3 wells, $5 calls, and 14 taps of local and select beers for $1 off.

Place

Raglan Public House

1851 Bacon Street, San Diego

Raglan Public House

Happy hour: 3–6pm, Monday–Friday; 10am–3pm, Saturday–Sunday

Combining organic burgers with artisan barley pops and New Zealand-inspired affability, Raglan recently celebrated a year in San Diego’s grooviest beach town. The bar boasts 24 taps and a beer engine for casks with drafts running from $3 to $7. Select suds are half-off during happy hour (Monday–Friday, 3–6; weekends, 10–3) along with munchies, house wines (many of which have Kiwi origins), and sangria. Monday: $6 flights and $10 munchie feasts, 6 to close. “Taco-less” Tuesday: $2.50 sliders and $12.50 pitchers, 6 to close. “Thurstober”: $5 steins and $5 pretzels, 6 to close. Sunday: half off everything, 8 to close.

Place

Galleria

Avenida Revolución 741 (between Calle 3ra and 4ta), Tijuana, BC

Le Galleria

Happy hour: All day, every day

Along the chalkboard walls of this Zona Centro pizzeria you’ll find sketches from urban artist Glow among handwritten poems and an Imperial stormtrooper pointing the way to the baños. Though many can’t imagine paying more than a buck a beer in Tijuana, the truth is that this is one of the only places in town where the fabled dollar draft can be found, and all day long. Featured tequila shots run around $3 and go surprisingly well with Le Galleria’s thin crust pizzas. Ask about their Wednesday classes, where you can toss, top, and cook your own New York–style pie.

Place

In Cahoots

5373 Mission Center Road, San Diego

In Cahoots

Happy hour: Daily specials and dance lessons

This well-worn country dance house in Mission Valley offers some boot-stomping drink specials. Free dance lessons kick off daily (closed Mondays) at 6:30 with classics such as the Slappin’ Leather Waltz, the Barn Dance, and the Redneck Angel. Tuesday: karaoke and $3 drinks all night. Wednesday: 15-year strong KSON night (crowded) with $2.50 drinks. Thursday: Steak, baked potato, and a beer for $5.95. Happy drinks 5 ’til 9. Friday: $3.50 Dos Equis and $5 Fireballs all night. And the biggie, Sunday: $2 all drinks, all night. Mind the dress code, city slicker.
