We’ve told you all about La Jolla happy hour and Del Mar, but we’ve decided to help out our friends a little further south and talk about the great happy hours in Pacific Beach. With practically every restaurant offering great food and drink specials, we narrowed it down to a few local favorites that cover a wide range of food interests.
For a classic pub feel, visit Brewley’s Pint, a traditional Irish pub located right on Garnet. Happy hour is offered daily until 7 PM and all night on Sundays. Monday thru Thursday it begins at 4 PM with $3 domestic beers, $4 premium beers and $3 house wines. On Fridays it starts at 2 PM and on Saturday and Sunday it starts as early as 12 PM!
