Firehouse PB There’s Nascar American & there’s American Chic, although we occasionally drink like the former, we design like the latter. For many years the original ”Firehouse Cafe” stood on this spot & became a local legend. After some time passed, a couple of name & ownership changes, the restaurant/bar fell into disrepair – left sad, broken-down & unloved, the two current owners, both San Diego residents purchased what was left of the business with pretty much all they had. Realizing Pacific Beach was growing up, their vision was to create a Retro-American-Chic version of the original … to bridge the gap between the swanky Miami-style lounges & the warm cozy vibe of Pacific Beach. We feel we have achieved this & hope you enjoy what we like to call “the new Pacific Beach”.
