There's another new tavern in town. I've been wanting to check out the West Coast Tavern (formerly Hawthorns) for weeks and we finally got there last weekend.
First off, the decor is awesome, it is literally inside the old Birch North Park Theater on at 2891 University Ave. in San Diego. Originally built in 1929, the building itself is full of unique charm and history. I instantly fell in love with the red vinyl booths and the brick walls.
The menu is limited but everything sounds great. We ordered the Triple Dip, three different types of hummus with pita bread which was very tasty. Of course I was checking out what other people were eating, those Angus Sliders looked tempting!
They have a decent beer selection on tap, I chose Stones IPA. The wine list is reasonable with most selections under $30 a bottle, and an assortment to choose from by the glass. They also had an interesting selection of specialty drinks.
The service was great, our server was super friendly and informative. She told us they hope to have some live music in the evenings soon, it has just the right ambiance for some jazz.
They are doing a big NYE masquerade party this year, it might be something to consider? Here is the info, nice music line up. westcoastclublife.com
