The Pendry San Diego presents Provisional Kitchen and Nason’s Beer Hall, two of the hotel’s stylish dining and drinking destinations.

Nason’s Beer Hall — Beer, cocktails and not-your-average pub-grub, globally-inspired comfort food
  • Nason’s features a selection of local and international beers, globally inspired comfort food and vintage bar games. Its name pays homage to Nason & Co. Farmer’s Market, which occupied the unique space in the early 1900s. Open daily from 3 p.m. to midnight, the bar features nearly 50 beers on draft, in bottles and cans that include local craft flavors alongside traditional German-style beers, select wines and classic cocktails too. With everything from bar snacks and brew-friendly entrees to sharable plates, including Nason’s classic housemade, buttery soft pretzel paired with violet mustard; a savory Belgian waffle with maple-roasted cauliflower; the Nason’s Burger topped with bacon and mustard jam and served on a pretzel roll, and even a vegetarian eggplant schnitzel breaded with pretzel crumbs. For the non-beer lovers: Nason’s offers cocktails including the East Side Rickey with Beefeater gin, mint, cucumber, lime, sugar and soda, and the El Diablo that combines Cabeza Tequila, lime, ginger syrup, crème de cassis and soda.
