The name, Little Italy’s Loading Dock, stems from the early 1900s when Little Italy was a bustling fishing neighborhood, priding itself as the world’s largest tuna industry. The success caused a lot of traffic on the docks, making the loading docks the meeting place for the community as the central hub of culture and commerce. As time went on, more fishing competition entered San Diego and prices skyrocketed causing many Little Italy fishing families to move out of the seaside neighborhood ending the tradition.

Little Italy’s Loading Dock  is equipped with numerous TVs for viewing sports games, an open dining area and an event center that can host private events from 20-220 people. Patrons can also capture their good times at Little Italy’s Loading Dock in the photo booth or take part in different recreational games like ping pong and corn-hole.

The “Trade & Transit” themed décor emphasizes the history of the location and the community as one of Little Italy’s original loading docks in the early 1900’s. Little Italy’s Loading Dock marries the modern bar and grill atmosphere with the nostalgic history of the community that came before it.
