ESPN features PB Shore Club as Best NAVY Bar

My favorite sports bar is the Pacific Beach Shore Club (PBSC) in San Diego, CA. It is 2700 miles from Annapolis, MD, but you wouldn’t be able to tell come Saturday when it’s time for the Navy to play!

The alumni in the area, and there are plenty with the 2nd largest Naval Base a few miles south and the 2nd largest Marine Base 30 miles to the North, come out to fully support every week and it’s a packed house. We show up, catch up, and celebrate every single first down with chants and cheers from our Academy days, wear our old uniforms in ridiculous ways, and stay to watch not just that game but also the rest of the games of the day since so many are from out of state there is always someone’s favorite team playing into the night, finishing it off with gorgeous sunsets right on the beach a few feet away!

We start in the morning to watch our east coast game and finish after the last west coast game is over. Sundays are just as great with Charger games on as well as everyone’s hometown favorite pro team too. But nothing compares to Army vs Navy, the biggest spectacle of the year! Forget the upstairs bar, they shut down the whole parking lot and pitch a huge tent, place several TVs and taco stands throughout the lot, and it all starts with a march thru Pacific Beach hours before the game starts. PBSC really knows how to throw a party!

That is only though what you see on the surface. They are such a respectful organization, and in touch with the servicemembers’ community that they have fundraisers for wounded veterans, gift drives for children of Veterans Killed In Action, and fundraising for those who lost their lives. They collect gifts by requesting donations of toys or cash for admission to the Army-Navy game extravaganza, or fundraising for the funeral of fallen warriors like they did for 1st Lt Travis Manion, USMC, and LT Brendan Looney, Navy SEAL. No sports nar in America has the loyalty of it’s patrons and returns the favor like the PB Shore Club. Stop by and check it out for yourself this college football season. GO NAVY, BEAT ARMY!!!


Pacific Beach Shore Club is San Diego’s Best Oceanfront Bar Where Sunsets Are Served Daily

Locals come here for the best ocean view in Pacific Beach with two full bars, 21 TVs, 20 beers on tap, awesome service, friendly people, sunsets served daily and killer food.

In 2009 they won “best fish taco” in Pacific Beach over a huge field including Rubio’s original fish taco at the Pacific Beach Beach Fest. So slide into a roomy booth or grab a window seat and enjoy the fun-filled atmosphere of happy, laughing people.

For starters the fresh-tasting ceviche is to die for. And their mouthwatering Southern California fries topped with melted cheeses, sour cream and guacamole are fabulous! You won’t find better tasting calamari anywhere.

Awesome sandwiches include their savory portabello with huge wedge fries. And their tri-tip served on a grilled garlic buttered French roll with fresh pico de gallo is second to none.

They serve delicious wraps, fresh salads, soups, sandwiches, huge burgers, fish tacos, seafood and appetizers galore. Everything is huge, fresh and delicious! They even have a menu for children.

The bottom line is that this isn’t just another restaurant bar at the beach. It’s the best one anywhere!

Bar open till 2 a.m. Breakfast is served Sat. and Sun., 8 a.m.–3 p.m.; lunch and dinner daily 11 a.m.–10 p.m. ($4–$16.50). Text ‘shoreclub’ at 74700 for events and specials. They are also on Facebook and have a DJ on the weekends. Plus, there’s never a cover charge.

Cold Rush: Beat the summer heat with San Diego’s frozen treats

Can a brain freeze of this magnitude be habit forming? Ask Cheech…

You can’t drink on the beach, but you can get a serious brain freeze steps from the sand at P.B. Shore Club, which serves up Vodka Red Bull Slushies to the masses.

Shore Club owner Doug Sondomowicz says that during busy weeks, the iconic beach bar powers through 150 cases of Red Bull to make the stiff, frozen drink. “Sometimes we do margaritas and Sweet Tea Vodka Lemonades in the summer, but we can barely keep the Vodka Red Bulls frozen with all five machines going on a sunny day,” Sondomowicz says.
