Because It’s Friday Night Every Night at This Pacific Beach Hotspot
In the heart of San Diego’s famous party beach town, Pacific Beach, lies a club where all the action happens: PB Shore Club. Step into this boardwalk-adjacent bar, and you’re one Red Bull vodka slushie away from the night of your life. The club is known for its panoramic ocean views, casual seaside ambiance and some of the best fish tacos in San Diego. Whether you’re a 20-something looking to make some memories with friends during happy hour or a college student looking for something to do on a weeknight, this hotspot has you covered. Gather your friends and head over to watch a game, compete at trivia or even race some goldfish! PB Shore Club is the perfect watering hole for a study break.
When: All day
Who doesn’t love a discount? On Mondays at PB Shore Club, hospitality workers can take advantage of 52% off their drink tabs! Grab your crew and enjoy food and drink specials too that are not only wallet-friendly but delicious. Herradura, Tito’s and High Noon drinks are only $5 and you can get a burger and beer for $10! PB Shore Club also knows that money talks. On the first Monday of every month starting at 8 p.m., you can test your luck by diving into a money booth and snagging as much cash as you can. While you won’t walk away a millionaire, your efforts will be rewarded in the form of a gift card.
When: Every Tuesday, 7-9 p.m. (Trivia) + every first Tuesday, 8-10 p.m. (Dirty Trivia)
Attention all trivia nerds! Mark your calendars for Tuesday nights, put on your thinking caps and get ready to win some gift cards. Wanna switch things up and get a little mischievous? For those whose minds live in the gutter, then the Dirty Trivia Nights, which occur on the first Tuesday of each month, are made for you. The playful banter from host Brian Gallo is a freebie for everyone involved. Loosen up beforehand by taking advantage of their half-off appetizers and 16-ounce draft beers and $5 Ketel One and Crown Royal drinks. Friendly competition is the name of the game here.11.28
When: Every Wednesday, 8 p.m.
You won’t find anything in Pacific Beach—or any other beach—quite like PB Shore Club’s weekly Goldfish Races. Every Wednesday night starting at 8 p.m., enjoy some heavily discounted drinks before the games begin. Spirits include Absolut, Altos and Jameson, as well as Kona drafts on tap, each for $5. From 4-9 p.m., you can get wing baskets for $9. When the time comes, arm yourself with a straw and blow into the water to get the goldfish to the other side. If you win, you’ll receive $80 off your tab! Come prepared with a strategy and the confidence to put all the heat on your goldfish—this is a serious competition!
When: Every Thursday, starting at 8 p.m.
Ditch the dating apps and meet new co-ed singles who are ready to mingle every Thursday night! Or if you’re not single but still hungry, you can head over early to indulge in their drink and taco specials. You won’t be able to resist the steak, chicken and veggie tacos for $3.50 each, or you can upgrade to shrimp and mahi tacos for $4.50 each. Oh, and let’s not forget their famous Red Bull vodka slushies and well drinks—available for only $5 starting at 8 p.m. As an added touch, the club provides a green-glow necklace if you’re flying solo or a red-glow necklace if you’re already taken. Come early to catch the sunset and avoid the long wait times, and remember: don’t be shy!
When: Football Season
PB Shore Club is kicking off football season in the best way! It’s time to throw on your team’s jersey, down a beer or two and watch the games at PB Shore Club’s chill rooftop lounge! The upstairs sports bar is equipped with plenty of flatscreen TVs and a delicious selection of finger foods. Enjoy drink specials like $6 Budweisers, Shock Tops, Big Waves, Longboards, Altos and Jameson, and be sure to check out the Game Day Platter—a grand plate of fried snacks for you and your friends to share. With their indoor-outdoor patio setup, you won’t miss a single touchdown—or the golden hour sunset views!
