London’s West End ends at our beach in a beautiful way

On a typical gorgeousSan Diegoday there is no better spot than a place like the beach at the end ofTourmaline Street.  Even on a gray day like when I went hunting for the perfect dive bar, there is none better than the one atLondon’sWest End.


Talk about your dedication.  They are open 7 days per week from 6:00 a.m. until 2:00 a.m.  This fact sets me to thinking, who goes there at 6:00 a.m. and why?  They serve no breakfast at theWest End.  They serve mainly bottled beer and well drinks that are strong and cheap.  Grab a pool stick and play a game or two on one of the two tables for half a buck or throw a game of darts… it’s all good at this dive bar extraordinaire.


Locals like to hang out here because it’s a great dive bar and they are a bit scarce in this part of town.  You can find surfer dudes here.  I met a doctor and an attorney (just hangin from the hood, they said) on the day I checked this place out.  They are young and they are old here.  The service is outstanding.  Very attentive and there is no attitude about your activity.  It’s a very mellow world inside.


I was told they have a guy who does hotdogs on the sidewalk in the evening but otherwise you’d better not come looking for any grub.  Pernicano’s is next door and down the road is a Tapas bar where you can get toast with Mediterranean toppings.  Head north a bit and you can find sushi.


If it’s a bad thing, and I find it a very bad thing because I only carry plastic, they don’t do plastic here.  The good thing about this is you probably won’t run up a $200.00 bar tab and regret it the next day.


This place will be really crowded for Superbowl Sunday.  They are doing $2.00 brews and well drinks for $2.50 all day!  So go there and get your football fever on, but get there early because the club isn’t that big.


London’sWest Endis located at5157 La Jolla Blvd.and they do like sports and party time.  I’d go back if it where my neighborhood for sure.
