I love whiskey, and I love chill bars with great whiskey. Help me find this perfect marriage while I'm in SD this weekend!
Check out 675 W Beech St, San Diego, CA 92101 Craft & Commerce. They don't carry many name brand booze labels and have a cool atmosphere. Usually find some fun new whiskeys to try when there. Food is good too. They also have a more beer focused place called Neighborhood that is also worth a visit. I don't go to SD without hitting up one of these spots. Cheers!

Definitely check out Seven Grand, it's exactly what you're looking for!
