Bar West

One of the best places to get wild on the coast, Bar West combines downtown flair with cool beach vibes. The lack of a cover charge, cheap drinks, open dance floor, and two stripper poles draw a crowd of rowdy 20-somethings that come to get crunk. Bar West delivers a full plate of hip-hop — from R&B to very, very Dirty South. The bump-and-grind dance moves are in full effect by 11pm. Thursday through Saturday the dance floor is packed with sweaty bodies until 2am — definitely not a club concerned with personal space.

If I wanted to immerse myself in a crowd where men initiate the conversation with lines like "My father [insert impressive profession here]..." I would have just gone Downtown. But here at Bar West, someone thought of the genius idea of bringing a piece of unglamorous Downtown to even less glamorous Pacific Beach. If you're going to do PB, do PB: PB Bar and Grill, Tap Room, Big Bertha's, Johnny V's, etc., just don't deny where you are by visiting a place full of Downtown's rejects like Bar West.
