Good Time Design Takes Over Former Fireside By The Patio Space In San Diego's Liberty Station

December 8, 2019

Good Time Design - a San Diego-based hospitality group with concepts that include Bub's At The Ballpark, The Blind Burro, Moonshine Flats, Lucky's Lunch Counter and more - has taken over the space that last housed Fireside By The Patio in Liberty Station for the opening of a new bar and restaurant centered around open fire cooking.

Created in 2006 by local businessman and hospitality entrepreneur Ty Hauter, Good Time Design started with the openings of The Double Deuce, The Tipsy Crow and the original Whiskey Girl, which have since all been sold. The hospitality company currently operates 10 venues located in San Diego, CA and Nashville, TN. Being Good Time Design will lose its 5-year lease operating the historic Loma Club in Point Loma as of December 31, the company has decided to sign on to take the space last housed by Fireside By The Patio, which was forced to shutter in late September following an SEC complaint alleging $300 million fraud against the company's founder Gina Champion-Cain.

Good Times Design is still working on details of its new concept, but we know it will have a full bar and offer a food menu centered around wood fire cooking, similar to Fireside. Expect GTD's corporate chef Todd Nash and resident pit master Ivan Munoz to develop the dishes, which will range from items with a Mexican influence to full fledge southern barbecue. The new bar & restaurant will have indoor and outdoor seating with front and back patios featuring fire pits. The yet-to-be named eatery is not expected to open until mid-2020.
