www.pbshoreclub.com This is a very popular bar and well located. It is right on the beach right across from the life guard station. It is located on the second floor. There is a set of stairs in front when entering from the beach. There are two bar areas when you enter. The bar on the left has a 10 person sit up bar and along the two walls with windows there is bench seating facing the windows. Just about everyone sits on the table area and feet on the seats facing in. There are also two large picnic style tables in the middle. There are 25 different types of beer on tap! The bar on the right has several booths and 3 picnic tables. They have the same style sit up bar as the other side. There are 25 TVs through out! For lunch I had the Lobster burrito which was very good. My wife had the 2 grilled mahi tacos and black beans and they were awesome!. This place was packed by 1:30 pm You would have thought that it was 11 pm instead. Lots of people were drinking these Red Bull smoothies! If you are ever in Pacific Beach you have to go here for sure!

www.bonvinsandiego.com It was fairly quite when we were there. They sell wine from California, France, Italy and Spain. There is a tasting room in the back and a sit up bar where we sat. In front there are comfortable chairs to sit and enjoy a glass of wine. To go with our wine we had a cheese plate with three different types of cheese. Bon Vin is located in an old heritage building. The plaque on the front of the building offers this information about the building:
The Lewis Brick Block, Stingaree Hotel 1887. Known as the Lewis Brick Block, the upper floors were referred to as the Stingaree Hotel in reference to the area's red light district. The main floor was used for cigar and tobacco shop, billiard hall and revival center. This Victorian building is characterized by decorative b rick arches over the second story windows and stepped brickwork along the roof line.
It is a very nice relaxing place to have a glass of wine, some cheese and let the day slip by.

www.coronadofirehousebarandgrill.com This is a Coronado Historical Landmark as it was the site of the first fire house in Coronado in 1892. Obvious fire dept theme. Sit up bar with its checker plated face plates, seats 25 and is 45 feet long. They have roll up garage doors at the front to open it all up, with side walk patio. 20 flat screen TVs through out the bar. The food was very good, I had the pizza, which was very good! My wife had the chicken salad and said it was very good. Our friend had a burger and he too said it was very good. All of the food had fire fighter themed names. They have a nice patio area in front and it is a very relaxing place to enjoy a drink and something to eat. With 14 beer on tap, a large selection of craft beer and the usual beer as well as a nice wine selection you can't go wrong. Very wide open feeling here and mix that with all the sunshine it is all good!! Two thumbs up!!

www.pbalehouse.com . I can't tell you about the main area of the alehouse as we sat upstairs in the Sky Bar area. The bottom picture shows the inside of the main part of the alehouse. Upstairs was great, sitting up there in all the sunshine! They brew their own beer on premise and have seven of their beer on tap. Happy hour is Monday to Friday 3-6pm where they have $ 3.00 house beer and well drinks. The sit up bar up top holds 6 people. A covered area, for those who have to watch them selves in the sun is just beside the bar. On the roof top they have 2 flat screen TVs so you don't miss anything. A full food menu is available but we did not try any of the food, just the wine! It is half a block from the beach, very modern and upscale. There is glass on top of the walls surrounding the bar to cut out any breeze. The glimpse I had of the main area....it looked pretty nice, but we were n a hurry to sit up in the sunshine. The service was very good. I would go here again if I had a chance!

www.hennesseystavern.com Est 1976, This is an Irish theme bar if you haven't figured that out. The sit up Bar seats ten and extends through the wall to the outside area and that section also seats ten. They serve 10 different beer on tap. Very good service 4 waitresses. 2nd sit up area is opposite bar facing pub area and seats 10. Through out the bar there are 10 TVs. . Food and drink specials through out the week. "Grady" the bartender when I was there was great. He had a genuine smile on his face and really took pride in his job. The food here all looked really good when I saw it coming out. I tried the thin sliced potato chips, kettle cooked with sea salt and vinegar. They were very good. There were quite a few people here having lunch from all ages (no kids under 21). The out side area is neat with a covered area that goes around the walls and covers about 6-8 feet deep with the center area open. They have a gas fire pit in the middle as well as the front patio area. I give this place two thumbs up. Say hi to Grady the best bartender in the San Diego area!!

www.analogbar.com This was interesting, we were there on a Sunday afternoon around 33o pm. This place was rocking to techno pop style music. Girls were dancing with glow sticks, and the guys were dancing as well. You would have thought that it was 1:00 am and not 3:30 pm on a Sunday. We chose to sit out side on the side walk patio area, where we could hear the music but not go deaf, LOL! The bar in the picture is the right side of the bar, the quieter side is to the left with booths and a couple of large tables in the middle. As for food and beer I have no idea, I didn't venture in side too far other than to use the washroom. You choose if this is your kind of place.

www.winestyles.net/coronado A very nice wine shop that you can sit down and order a glass of wine and a nice cheese plate. They have a very nice sidewalk patio area in front. In side there is a 6 person sit up bar and 6 bar height tables for two. There is a very good selection of wine. I suggest ordering the wine flight which is 3 half glasses of wine. They change the types of wine daily and you can do reds or whites. A daily wine special is another feature they have. With a good selection of cheeses, they will pair it up with your wine. The back room has a wine tasting area and it was very popular when we were there. I think you pay a small fee and they take you through various wines. The Wine Styles also has a great selection of gifts all with a wine theme. If you are n to cigars they have a nice selection of fine cigars. They had a live singer when we were there.....I could have done with out him. I preferred the recorded music and the singer got kind of cheesy! I recommend you try this place out if you are ever in the area!

The sit up bar seats 12 with 9 beer on tap, 3 of which are seasonal beer and rotate in and out through out the different seasons. They have a full menu with pizza, burgers, pasta, sandwiches, salads and appys. If you want you can bowl and have your drinks with you! They sure know how to do it up right in the USA!! There are 8 pool tables, 15 flat screen TVs to boot! Lots of parking and makes a nice break when your spouse is shopping.

They have 15 different types of beer on tap. A pitcher of Pabst beer is $9 and a pitcher of Stella is $14. They have a long narrow covered patio area along the side walk that seats about 30 people or so. The grill serves hot dogs, burgers, nachos, wings, fries and they have daily specials. There is a pool table in the back area of the bar. The walls are adorned with old pictures. It is an old interesting place but it just didn't jump out and captivate me. There are alot better bars in the area.
