Looking for happy hour on the beach? JRDN is a bit nicer than most of the laid-back pacific beach options, but an awesome spot to grab a drink or some apps for decent prices during happy hour.

JRDN at Tower23 Hotel is a marquis gem of Pacific Beach. Trendy, sophisticated yet still somehow casual with it’s breezy open floor plan that keeps your senses reminded that you are dining and drinking at one of the closest spots to the beach and boardwalk in town. The perfect view of the sunset casting a silhouetted Crystal Pier is unmatched. Walk in dressed to impress or with board shorts and flip flops – it’s impossible to feel out of place with this beach vibe that is the epitome of San Diego beach chic. Sporting a carefully selected menu of seasonal and local fare that gives you ample opportunity to customize your meal – pick your proteins, sides, sauces, etc – let it be as bold or light as you feel. Or choose from an assortment of entrees, salads, and appetizers that are local favorites, such as the mussels with chorizo. For a signature San Diego experience make sure to take in JRDN with all your senses.

The patio at JRDN is gorgeous with the view that overlooks the ocean and the Crystal Pier in Pacific Beach. I love sitting outside, soaking up the sun and admiring the panoramic view. It's perfect for a day date or even brunch with friends and family.

There's a nice selection of brunch items, like eggs benedict and french toast, as well as salads, sandwiches and burgers. The dishes are a little pricey with most ranging between $12 and $17 but it's not uncommon to have to pay a bit more to dine with a view.

If you're looking for a drink, they offer a selection of unique juices (blood orange rosemary, pineapple mango and blackberry mint) to build your own mimosa.

Of course, they also serve lunch and dinner but I'm partial to the brunch at the beach.

My favorite spot in PB! Good food, good drinks. Happy hour has great prices. My go to place when out of town guests are visiting for sunset and a bite. The best place in PB on the ocean.

Enjoyed the happy hour! They had some nice food selections and drinks too. Overall it's a bit pricey but it is one of the more fancy restaurants on Pacific Beach and you have a view of the Ocean from the bar.

The open floor plan, patio on the boardwalk and generous bar make the sleek and modern JRDN a fine spot for business, networking or a date night. Full wine list and creative cocktails, valet parking and steak/seafood menu make this a unique and sumptuous stop in the otherwise surf-themed neighborhood.

One of my FAVORITE spots in San Diego. The ceviche tacos and burgers are amazing by my favorite are the fresh muddled raspberry mojitos. Spectacular views inside and out of the Pacific Ocean. This place will impress you and the service is fantastic. Not cheap, not too expensive, but perfect for the great ambiance and views overlooking the ocean and board walk. Plus: people watching and fresh air!

Great happy hour prices! Thought my friend and I were too dressed up until we walked in here. Everyone was so fancy...really kind of nice for a place like PB.
Haven't tried the food yet...will comment on that if I get the chance to go again.

It's a really nice place to dine and have a drink. Right on the beach front, it is a restaurant of a hotel but locals are welcome to come. The food is excellent with a wide choice of wines.

Fabulous restaurant in PB with a gorgeous view of the ocean. Sit out on their patio and enjoy one of their specialty cocktails with your meal.

I had their BBQ Duck sandwich, which was their version of a Vietnamese banh mi/Peking duck bun, and it was really tasty.

Everyone who works here is really good looking. You'd expect this place to be pretentious but it was nothing but friendly and accommodating. My server Chloe was super sweet!
