Slinging tropical cocktails from behind a flamingo-flared tap bar and presenting espresso martinis via an ice luge, the Miss B’s team set out to deliver a vibe at their anniversary party, and that they did. Swag bags greeted guests at the door, and included in these goodie bags were a snapback hat and a custom T-shirt.

As the backbone of the event’s entertainment, Dylan’s Steel Band—an accomplished group made up of members from all over the US and the Caribbean—delivered tunes that transported guests to a mini vacation. And food…we can’t forget food. Along with a plethora of other yummy dishes, the restaurant’s beloved poke, which had been off the menu for years, made its comeback at the party, and it will now be on the menu once again. We know you regulars have been dying to discover this news, so you’re welcome. Miss B’s typically hosts a couple events a year—whether it’s the anniversary party or a cocktail-making contest, among others—so be sure to keep your eye out for their next banger!

Originally gaining its name from an at-the-time provocative character on the front of an early 20th century real estate brochure, Miss B’s has sunk its roots deep into the sands of Mission Beach. The name was actually created by shortening Mission Beach, and the woman was dreamt up as a way to generate more real estate business in the town, which was a tent city in the early 1900s. Roughly a century later, the name now lives on at this beloved San Diego restaurant and bar.

Regarding the revamp, founder and CEO Pete Cich shares,

“Guests can expect the same layout with enhanced features, such as upgraded audio/visuals and elevated dining features like high-top booths and new furniture. We aim to show our new guests and loyal customers our love and appreciation for their patronage by providing better seating and upgraded visuals. The overall look and aesthetics have been completely upgraded, which is very exciting for us” he shares.

“When we first opened Miss B’s Coconut Club, the budget was much lower, and many projects were DIY. Coming back eight years later to spruce up the place is truly special.”

And spruce it up they have. Partner and Designer/Stylist Natasha Ross Prickett specifically went for a fresh take on tropical. Marrying a blend of midcentury modern design with retro nods and Cuban concepts, the original bones of the space remain, including its “Miss B’s Coconut Club” mural and the iconic turquoise booth seating—which now is newly complemented with touches of orange, abstract ceiling tiles and modern, gold light fixtures. Pops of tropical color, including bright yellow monstera plants and hot-pink birds of paradise bring the interior to life, while a fire pit and cozy outdoor seating area draw in the passersby for an evening of flavors and flames. Snag a seat by the bar for an afternoon cocktail or stake out a spot at a high-top table indoors, depending what’s on the docket for your night.

When it comes to eats, Miss B’s Coconut Club is the place to be, especially if you dig a fusion of Caribbean and American cuisine. Chef Troy Williams, an OG Miss B’s employee since day one, has crafted the menu as head chef since 2017. Fun fact: Although vegan himself, Williams has been told he makes the best meat in town!

Cich shares that the Skirt Steak Dinner Plate will be making its way back to the menu. Other food favorites include the previously mentioned poke as well as long-standing favorites like the Plantain Coconut Shrimp, Coconut Club Burger and Cubano Sandwich.

 A freshly revamped cocktail menu will debut thanks to Partner and Beverage Director Rob McShea. Some must-try libations include the newly added Bird’s the Word, which is made with mezcal, Aperol, cordial, lime and strawberry. B’s Batanga, another new sip on the block, is made with reposado tequila, lime juice, Alma Tepec and Coke. But one of Miss B’s most popular items is the long-loved Havana Good Time, which is delightfully made with Absolut Elyx, pamplemousse, house grapefruit, cucumber cordial and guava mint kombucha—served in either a single-size copper flamingo or an equally aesthetic shareable copper flamingo.

Offering an array of American-Caribbean cuisine, as well as a selection of curated craft cocktails, Miss B’s tastes like “vacay every day”—which just so happens to be another one of their mottos.



Enter a design oasis as you step into Miss B’s Coconut Club’s newly renovated space. With a twist on the typical tropical decor, a midcentury modern look meets retro vibes, giving the would-be Caribbean air a little extra flair.


Price Point 

With most plates in the $18-20 range and a majority of their cocktails hovering around $13-14, Miss B’s price point is fair. For less than what you may spend on a pair of jeans, you and your plus one can plan on eating, drinking and “Havana Good Time.”
