Good Time Design, a hospitality group with concepts that include Bub's At The Ballpark, The Blind Burro, Cat Eye Club and more, is venturing out of San Diego's East Village and moving into the former Fred's Mexican Cafe and Typhoon Saloon at 1165 Garnet Avenue in Pacific Beach to open Moonshine Beach and Cerveza Jack's, a dual restaurant and bar concept currently under construction to debut in 2016!
Moonshine Beach is the sister concept to East Village’s Moonshine Flats, and just how Moonshine Flats and The Deck are two concepts in one, Moonshine Beach will be a 2-in-1 with Cerveza Jack’s as the restaurant portion. The project is fully funded and a $4 million renovation started this November to transform the 20,000 square foot venue that will eventually accommodate 1,500 people and feature an entertainment venue (with a larger stage than Moonshine Flats has) and restaurant. Moonshine Beach is scheduled to open in mid-February 2016
Moonshine Beach will be the only major entertainment venue in Pacific Beach and will feature live music 4-nights per week during winter months and 4+ nights per week during summer months. Weekend entertainment will include today’s best, young and high-energy country acts (both regional and national touring), special concert events, and additonal national and regional touring acts. Weeknights, Moonshine Beach will present reggae and indie rock acts.
Moonshine Beach will have a southern Gulf Coast hospitality feel to it, whereas Moonshine Flats has a southern-influenced Texas roadhouse feel. Cerveza Jack’s is expected to open in April 2016 and feature a menu of woodfired Mexican fare, but until then, a pop-up version of Cerveza Jack’s will serve food starting as early as December 2015.
