Lounging

TRENDY HOT SPOT Firehouse American Eatery & Lounge is heating up the Pacific Beach nightlife scene. Bordering the neighborhood’s beachside fire station, Firehouse boasts an all-American ambience and a second-level open-air deck with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean.

VIBE: PB bar-hoppers looking for a downtown feel flock to this edgy joint. On Sunday nights, a deejay spinning deep house music on the rooftop deck adds to the downtown vibe, yet the laid-back beach mentality of patrons pervades. (Think flip-flops and tube tops.)

DÉCOR: Red umbrellas and dim red lighting on the deck give Firehouse festive flair, while cozy lounge-style seating invites patrons to take a load off. The swanky “fire” theme is found in the intimate downstairs area as well, where couches and high-top tables are scattered throughout the dimly lit space.

EATS & DRINKS: Specialty drinks include the Ladder 21 Lemonade——a sweet twist on Grandma’s traditional recipe——served in a jelly jar. For those who wish to relive their college days, grab a cold one: Pabst Blue Ribbon “tall boys” are served in brown paper bags. Hungry patrons can indulge their inner child with American favorites like macaroni and cheese, mini corn dogs and chicken fingers. Those with a heartier appetite can find everything from burgers with “freedom fries” to New York strip steak. Dinner is served nightly until 10.

MISCELLANEOUS: Night-dwellers can rock out to hot local deejays on Thursday, Friday and Sunday nights. The downstairs lounge tends to heat up at night——literally——when large crowds loiter, and the setup and limited space of the lower level make it difficult to beat a path to the bar. For a more mellow mood (and to avoid swarming late-night regulars), come for breakfast, served daily 8-3.
