We came here to celebrate a friend's birthday. We ate at Soda and Swine (next door/adjoined) which was a 3/5 stars. Then we came here! I really enjoyed the drinks, and that they allowed people to eat their food from Soda and Swine in this restaurant (served them here too). I gave it 4/5 stars because it is unusual to... More

Had an amazing evening with friends here. The bar staff know exactly what they are doing...every cocktail I had was amazing. Yes it was a bit of a drive from our hotel in the Gaslamp quarter but I'd certainly recommend the drive to North Park to visit. The ambience is great! The food was also really good! Love the decor...

What a great bar. Amazing hand crafted cocktails that are very innovative. A must visit when visiting San Diego! They also feature a lot of cocktails on tap. The interior is really cool. Love the bathroom floor made out of nickels! Everything here is creative and unique!

Had to take a cab out to the area of San Diego to visit Polite Provisions on a recommendation from a friend. It's located in an old drugstore - still has the neon sign out front.

This is a great place to go with a friend after a long work week! It gets loud, but you can still chat and have a great time...never a dull moment here. The drinks are fantastic. Can't go wrong with whatever drink you order.

Visited this fine spot while on holidays last July 2016. My son likes his beers especially ipa and foreign. This was just the spot . Great range of beers to be had and the food was great. The ambiance was very relaxed. No belting music or unruley people . Just a perfect spot for an hour or two. Hope to... More
