This fall San Diego’s Downtown Gaslamp Quarter will welcome The Commons, a neighborhood bar true to its name – a common place for friends to gather. The concept behind The Commons is simple, drawing inspiration from America’s iconic bars and traditional watering holes centered on friendly service, offering simple but best-in-class bar fare and drink favorites in an approachable and laid-back environment.
Partners Jake Pescatello, a San Diego entrepreneur, and Leigh Gibson, Founder of Dirty Birds in Pacific Beach, which has seen vast success developing a cult like following and national recognition for its award-winning chicken wings, together bring over 20 years of industry experience.
“The Commons will be your go-to bar to relax, kick back and have fun,” said partner Jake Pescatello. “We want our guests to feel welcome, whether they’re looking for a place to sample San Diego’s newest craft beer on tap, drop in for a quick lunch or just perch up on the patio. Life is tough enough; your local watering hole shouldn’t be.”
“Location is a key to success in the restaurant industry and we spent a lot of time doing our homework, so when this opportunity presented itself we were confident it was a situation where we were in the right place at the right time,” said Pescatello. “Our vision is to create a concept for San Diego that has the ability to achieve landmark status. We see The Commons as something that could have been in San Diego 20 years ago and something that will be able to keep its cool factor 20 years from now.”
