Started from the bottom now the whole team's shuckin' here.
Take your team to the delightfully delectable and carefully curated Ironside in San Diego's luxe Little Italy. Decked out in art deco tiles, nautical niceties and vintage luggage - the floor-to-ceiling hand-crafted cocktail and fresh oyster bar will make any briney bash simply beautiful.
Late Night Eats: While Ironside’s last seating is at 10 p.m., the raw bar will stay open alongside the cocktail bar until 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights, offerings bivalves, oyster flights, crudos, crab claws and more!
Amenities Street Parking Wifi Dining Chairs Dining Tables Onsite Restrooms Venue Features The Scene: Located in the forever hip Little Italy section of San Diego, if you’re looking for somewhere to see and be seen these days, Ironside Fish & Oyster is a safe bet. Generating a constant buzz even before opening, the stunning statement space is packed with provocative design elements and progressive architectural details. Ripping a page from Puget Sound, two-starred Michelin chef Jason McLeod is running a raw bar focused restaurant comprised of three "culinary hubs" - expect rocking oyster platters, ceviche, lobsters, mind bending cocktails and of course, a packed house full of scenesters. Design: Eye-catching design is everywhere at CH Projects' reimagined 1920s-era warehouse, where Jules Verne (20,000 Leagues Under The Sea) himself wouldn't look out of place enjoying a fortified cocktail at the lavish, custom-fabricated bar. The nautical-themed work of art is thoroughly backed up by clever wordplay on the “A Rising Tide Lifts All Boats” signage, which stands watch over the exterior. The front facade dawns magnificent flip doors and windows edged in brass, which can be lifted to create an open-concept dining space facing the bustling street scene outside. Tucked into every corner of the restaurant, diners are encouraged to discover conversation-starting design accents such as a marquee "SHIT HAPPENS" lighting installation near the bathrooms, golden mermaids statues and a massive wall adorned with hundreds of faux piranha skulls.
