Perhaps our favorite spot in sunny San Diego provides relief from the constant sun when needed.  Nunu’s Cocktail Lounge, a dark, divey bar in Hillcrest might be one of the best bars ever.  A dark den of a joint, walking into Nunu’s during the day creates the impression that you are simply walking into night time.

The drinks are poured with a heavy hand and are dirt cheap.  There’s also a late night menu of greasy bar whatnots, big circular booths, a down to earth crowd and a smoking nook out back.  A little something for everyone.  And if you get there early enough to snag it, there’s a great little two-fer (or three-fer) seat with a raging fire.

The guy out front (on weekends) will card you regardless of age, and inevitably joke about how the date on your id must be wrong — if you are female.

We’ve hit up Nunu’s as often as possible, without neglecting the rest of San Diego.  But we think we could die happy here.
