A crowded, venerable dive on the border of Hillcrest and Banker's Hill with cheap drinks and decent bar food.. In Short Some things never change. It's not fancy, the food's not that yummy, and it's more shabby than shabby-chic. But that doesn't stop downtown professionals, uptown hair stylists and old friends from stopping in for drinks after work and on weekends. The bar staff is attentive, and it's the kind of place where, if you're from San Diego, you almost always run into someone you know.
