The thrilling enticement of lively entertainment, sunny beaches, thriving bars and classic cuisine make Pacific Beach (PB) San Diego a popular destination for locals and tourists alike. In early 2017, the opening of the highly anticipated new restaurant Waterbar raises the PB bar and restaurant scene even higher with unparalleled oceanfront ambience and an unrivaled menu complete with exquisite cocktails.
Waterbar will be located in the heart of Pacific Beach along the bustling ocean boardwalk, where Grand Avenue meets the beach just south of the iconic Crystal Pier. The restaurant’s floor-to-ceiling windows will provide an unobstructed view of sea and sky, while expansive space offers ample opportunity for locals and visitors to gather, eat, sip and socialize.
“We can hardly wait to share this space with all of San Diego,” says co-owner Todd Brown, who currently owns Bub’s at the Beach, Bub’s at the Ballpark and Blind Burro. Brown is joined by Eric Leitstein of OMG Hospitality Group (think Union Kitchen + Tap, Backyard Kitchen + Tap and P.B Alehouse) and Joe Vaught of The Verant group (Barleymash, Tavern, Sandbar, WESTROOT, True North Tavern, Uptown Tavern). This well-seasoned team of restauranteurs could not pass up on the prime location, and seized the opportunity to create something dynamic and unique with the new Waterbar—an elegant, energetic beachfront dining experience that captures the very heart and soul of sunny San Diego.
Inspired by East coast, West coast and Baja cuisines, “social seafood” will be on the menu, including fresh shellfish and locally caught favorites, which will be transformed into the chef’s unique renditions of coastal classics. Chowder, cioppino, tapas, meat and veggies are also on the menu with many other innovative dishes sure to stimulate and satisfy every palate.
Waterbar’s 6700 sq. ft. venue features a spacious lounge and two expansive bars. Flavor-forward craft cocktails present both irresistible favorites and innovative libations. San Diego-centric, locally crafted beers and a diverse wine list can be enjoyed across comfortable bar seating, community-table dining, and intimate ocean-side tables. Whether guests come for brunch, lunch, a sunset-inspired happy hour, dinner or late night bite, they’re sure to be magnetized by the sensational allure of panoramic views amid vibrant surroundings.
