- In Short
Often singled out as one of San Diego's legendary dive bars, this colorful hangout near Horton Plaza attracts a crowd of hard-core drinkers and weekend warriors ready to party. Regulars overlook the sticky, booze-stained red carpet andtattered leatherette bar stools for a chance to throw back cheap drinks poured by cute Asian bartenders. The tacky décor is achieved mostly with old beer posters, sparkly tinsel and strings of Christmas lights, and the dimly lit space borders on scary. Loud music turns conversation into an exercise in lip reading, and when it gets hot and crowded, a brawl or two is inevitable.
