Night Out in Downtown San Diego

El Dorado Cocktail Lounge

It’s girls night and the night is young. My friends and I start our night early by making our way to El Dorado’s happy hour that last from 5pm-9pm everyday. El Dorado is located right before you actually hit the heart of Downtown San Diego but don’t be fooled by the location of this cocktail lounge! The area may not seem up to standard but once you enter, you won’t want to leave.

El Dorado is different than any other bar or lounge in Downtown San Diego. The atmosphere is casual and the crowd is beyond friendly. The lounge is quite small but has more than enough seats at the bar to sit at. However, if you’re lucky enough, you can snag a booth for you and your buddies to chill at.

Moscow Mule

Straight to the bar we go, a round of Moscow Mules for everyone! The drink is not served in an ordinary cup but a large jar filled to the rim with delicious goodness. The Moscow Mule consists of vodka, sugar syrup, lime juice, and ginger beer all topped off with a sprig of fresh mint and a wedge of lime. During happy hour, this fabulous joint serves up free seasoned popcorn with a little spicy kick to go with your Moscow Mule (which is only $5.) The drink seems endless and leaves you feeling more than satisfied.

Now throwback those Moscow Mules because it’s time to hit the dance floor! El Dorado has a DJ playing all types of music to get down to and a small dance floor to shake what your mama gave you! There’s no reason to be shy because the atmosphere is inviting, the drinks are good, and there are plenty of people to mingle with.

El Dorado turned me in a Moscow Mule lover and I’m sure once you visit this place you’ll understand why. It’s not just because the drinks are great and the popcorn is free, it’s because the atmosphere is comfortable and the people are welcoming. I’ll see you again soon El Dorado and that’s a promise!

Deal of the Day: La Puerta

It’s Wednesday and it’s time to get your happy hour on!

In the Gaslamp district in Downtown San Diego, La Puerta serves up one of the best happy hours in town. On Wednesdays from 3pm-7pm, drinks and appetizers are half off. From 10pm-2am La Puerta offers half off wine, frozen drinks, and draft beers.

Between 10pm-2am be sure to try their famous frozen mojito for only $3. The cool, minty drink will make you want seconds. Also, please make sure you order their carne asada fries! During happy hour, the carne asada fries are only $5 and the portion size gives you plenty to go around. I know what you’re thinking, the carne asada fries can’t be that good…. But trust me, they’re THAT GOOD!
