Reviews for Bar West

My roommate works as a busboy at Bar West so I go in quite often to say hello and grab a drink or a bite to eat. I"m pretty sure they don't have "downtown prices", it's actually quite the the contrary. Beers were only $2 until 10pm, after that a specific brand of vodka was only $5 all night (i don't remember which one because I had too many :).

It's a cool place with cool people. You can avoid cover charge if you call and get on the guest list or send a message on Facebook. At the end of the day, it's a night club not a bar. If you like the neighborhood dive then this isn't the place for you. if you are looking for a nightclub experience then you will enjoy your visit.

There are drink specials every night and $2 drinks for happy hour. That definitely beats downtown prices! Plus the door staff is very accommodating and service is awesome. My sister had her bachelorette party there and she had the best time! We came for dinner and stayed for bottle service. DJ was great and we danced all night (table in the back with the pole is awesome). I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for an upscale experience in PB at an affordable price.

Let's face it, if you're looking for the typical PB dive bar than Bar West ISN'T for you. Bar West offers something different and that's why I love it. It's just as fun as going downtown without having to deal with the long lines, fancy dress code and outrageous cover charge.

I love bar west and go there at least once or twice a week. its a little classier then your reg pb bar and plays music that I like.

Best club in san diego and you don't have to deal with downtown. Hot bottle service girls and great management.

Grade: F – BarWest was cool for about the first 6 months it opened after replacing the equally non-classy Margarita Rocks. Since then they haven't been able to get it right. They got downtown prices, rude staff, no cute girls, and a bunch of random weirdos that go there. I have no idea why anyone would pay cover for this place. All the cute girls are either downtown, or feel like having a casual night and frequenting a real "PB" bar.

PS. don't even think about having food here. I wonder what their monthly food revenue is.

The beach scene gets chic off Garnet with a stylish restaurant and lounge that caters to the downtown crowd. – In Short
Pacific Beach is getting a face lift, and a hefty dose of sophistication, as the nightlife gurus behind hot spots Stingaree and Sidebar bring their upscale brand of downtown style to the old Margarita Rocks building on Hornblend. The large (5000 sq. ft.) space features a slick restaurant serving California cuisine, a swanky lounge area with bottle service and a DJ booth perched above an intimate dance floor. Sidewalk seating completes the see-and-be-seen atmosphere.
