J & Tony's Discount Cured Meats And Negroni Warehouse Unveils In San Diego's East Village

August 18, 2019

The first collaboration concept from San Diergo-born Modern Times Beer and Consortium Holdings is finally complete. An industry-focused meat house and Italian spirits bar meets Jurassic-themed coffee shop, J & Tony's Discount Cured Meats and Negroni Bar has opened within The Invigatorium in San Diego's East Village.

Last month, two of the city's coolest producers unveiled the first half of their joint hospitality project. Expanding craft beer company Modern Times Beer and local hospitality group Consortium Holdings (Born & Raised, Morning Glory) opened a contemporary coffee house concept dubbed the The Invigatorium in the East Village space where Coffee & Tea Collective sat before recently relocating to 704 J Street. Invigatorium offers an array of coffee concoctions, cold brews, pour-over drinks, and Modern Times craft beers, as well as various vegan pastries and snacks from Split Bakehouse, all in a retro-designed space featuring a giant gold disco ball, dinosaur statues, hanging plants and a Post-It produced Godzilla mural.

The second half of the dual-concept grand opened yesterday at the base of Consortium's corporate headquarters. J & Tony's Discount Cured Meats and Negroni Warehouse is an industry-focused sandwich shop and Italian spirits focused bar from Consoritum Holdings Corporate Chef Jason McCloud and beverage director Anthony Schmidt. There is a 15 seat bar with a fast casual in-house eatery centered around cured-meat sandwiches, housemade charcuterie sliced to order, pickled vegetables, and an aperitivo-centric craft cocktail list, as well as breakfast options like egg sandwiches, tacos, home fries and a bagel & lox tower. In the future, a meat aging room may be added and special events may be on the horizon, including a rotating chef pasta night. 

J & Tony's Discount Cured Meats and Negroni Warehouse and The Invigatorium are both located at 631 9th Avenue in San Diego's East Village. For more information, check out the food menus below.
