Bub’s Whiskey Dive Downtown San Diego
East Village Bub’s Whiskey Dive…
…Grand opening was Friday Febraury 4th. Although Bub’s is generally known as being a Steeler’s fan’s bar, I think they will be well received in Downtown’s East Village Neighborhood. I’m still a little shocked that the Charger’s don’t even have their own Downtown San Diego bar yet, but apparently San Diego fans are like a deer in the headlights…no innitiative.
Bub’s Whiskey Dive is ideally located on the corner of Seventh and J Streets just North of The Legend condo building. It has what I would call the best outdoor cafe style seating are of any restaurant in East Village. Another great design feature is that they have roll up garage doors style windows that make the space a huge indoor-outdoor style venue.
With an extra large bar smack middle in the restaurant and TV’s mounted on every surface possible, I think this place is going to do very well. My personal favorites are the shuffle board table and the basketball cages…Yes, you can shoot hoops and get the competitive juices flowing. Game on!!
All The Way at Bub’s Whiskey Dive

You couldn’t possibly miss BUB’s East Village as it has huge pink neon signs and colorful beer company logo lights in the windows. Bub’s proudly boasts six large American Flags hanging from poles off the facade of the buiding and they demand your attention.
The Menu – The menu consists of sandwhich options, pasta dishes, steaks, kabobs, fish and chips, plenty of apetizers and TATER TOTS! I ordered the Beach Break Steak Sandwhich and went, “All the way” which means they add grilled bell peppers, grilled onions and grilled mushrooms. All I can say is…Delicious and I’ll be back for sure! Oh, did I mention that they serve peanuts in the shell and you can just toss the shell on the ground?
