American Junkie Grand Opens In San Diego's Gaslamp On April 21

April 19, 2017

Debuting in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter this week at 628 5th Avenue in the combined spaces that previously housed La Fiesta and neighboring Ocean Room is American Junkie, an Orange County-based bar/restaurant/lounge concept.

American Junkie is a modern sports bar and restaurant that currently has locations in Hermosa Beach and Newport Beach, with former outposts in Chicago and Scottsdale that have since been sold. The restaurant offers a modern American tavern menu, with frequent nightly specials and happy hour and the usual gastropub menu items like wings, nachos, sandwiches, sliders, burgers, hot dogs, pizza, etc. The eatery also serves large cocktails in mason jars and a tap list that spans the spectrum from big beer to craft. Other locations of American Junkie are known to offer a DJ-fueled, club-like atmosphere late night on weekends and San Diego will be no different. The eatery intends to introduce a boozy brunch in the coming weeks.

American Junkie San Diego officially grand opens on Friday, April 21. Once open, the eatery will offer happy hour Monday through Friday from 3-6pm, offering 50% off all drinks. They will also host a Taco Tuesday with $5 all-you-can eat tacos, $5 margaritas and $3 Coronas.
