This is now the most popular bar in Pacific Beach after PB Bar and Grill closed down. Right by the water of the beach with good happy hour specials and good food, you'll find a lot of fun crowds here for a good time. It's also a great place to watch a sports game.
JRDN at Tower 23
Inside the Tower 23 Hotel is a very beautiful beachfront restaurant called JRDN. They have an extensive wine menu, a large bar in front to serve you cocktails and beers and best of all, they have a fantastic view. You can sit in the patio and watch the waves. Below is a view you can expect sitting from inside the restaurant, next to the bar.

FireHouse American Eatery & Lounge
Make this your last stop between 10PM - 11 PM. Dress to impress. They have a rooftop and a dance floor that opens around that time on the weekends. If you have time for dinner beforehand, the food here is actually really decent! Regular events include Tamales Tuesdays and College Night Thursdays.
Top Bars to Watch the SDSU Aztec games in Pacific Beach
1. Duck Dive on Mission Ave- They have a lot of monitors and a lot of alumnus as well as SDSU students that hang out there as well.
2. Cabo Cantina on Garnet Ave - I actually suggest this place over Bub's. It's right next door too. They have a lot of monitors but their bathroom sucks! Big time! So if you pee a lot, stay away from here or go to Sinbad's to pee and then come back.
