Go Go Amigo Brings Mexican Cantina Flare To San Diego's Liberty Station

March 6, 2022

Opening this week in San Diego's Liberty Station is Go Go Amigo, a mostly al fresco Mexican cantina from the local restaurant group behind concepts like The Blind Burro, Moonshine Flats, Lucky's Lunch Counter and more.

Founded 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 more than a dozen venues located in San Diego, CA and Nashville, TN. Good Time Design also recently took over the old Gaslamp Strip Club space for the opening of Happy Does, a country-inspired American bar & restaurant. In addition, longtime Good Time Design partner Sean Green and Ty Hauter have acquired Patrick's Gaslamp Pub and are planning to reopen the Irish bar just in time for St. Patrick's Day.

Being Good Time Design lost its 5-year lease operating the historic Loma Club in Point Loma as of December 2019, the company decided in early 2020 to take over the space that previously housed Fireside By The Patio, which was forced to shutter in late September 2019 following an SEC complaint alleging $300 million fraud against the company's founder Gina Champion-Cain. After opening The Presley in the former Fireside space in 2020, Good Time Design doubled down in Liberty Station by taking over the 8,800 square-foot neighboring unit that last housed the public relations-fueled dud El Jardin.
Go Go Amigo offers a playful design with brightly-hued furnishings, a container bar lit by market lights, fire pits, and neon lights, as well as a menu of south-of-the-border cuisine from Executive Chef Todd Nash. Menu highlights include a stuffed chile relleno, rockfish & pulpo agua chile, and the Ahogada sandwich with carnitas, cabbage and carrot slaw, red onion, avocado, queso fresco, and cilantro, on a bolillo roll with Ahogada dip. The menu also includes a selection of tacos, including al pastor, quesabirria, shrimp, and pollo asada, as well as classic sides and starters, soups and salads, and desserts. The bar also features an expansive list of margaritas, specialty cocktails, beer, and wine.

Go Go Amigo will grand open on Tuesday, March 8, at 2885 Perry Road with the Liberty Station compound in San Diego's Point Loma. For more information, visit gogoamigosd.com and check out the menu below.
