San Diego's First Bikini Bar Now Open | Brews & Babes Unveils In La Mesa

March 3, 2019

Billed as "San Diego's first and only bikini bar," Brews & Babes is now open in the space that last housed The Rook in family-friendly La Mesa.

From Alex Tambor, who also owns Distractions Lounge in Huntington Beach, Brews & Babes is located in a seedy strip mall on the outskirts of La Mesa that also houses a massage parlor that was previously investigated. It is a 21-and-older dive bar where bikini-clad bartenders and servers tend to patrons. The bar has a type 42 liquor license with a menu of beer, wine and sake, as well as a pool table. Is it a strip club? No, but it's close.

Brews & Babes is open from 11am-2am at 7745 University Avenue in La Mesa.
