This dive bar is a bit different than all of the rest; this old bar is a piano bar. The vibe is perfectly divey, though prices tend to be a bit more expensive than other San Diego dives. It also serves as a full restaurant, but later in the night, this place is perfect to come and enjoy some live, classic tunes.



  • Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. From the Cabernet-colored Naugahyde to the rollicking sing-a-longs, this place defined lounge culture. Raise a glass to Shirley!
  • Great food and drinks are the staples of this steak restaurant. The combination of good food and live music makes the restaurants ambience.
  • Classic, classy eats.
  • The best karaoke has live musicians. Swing the standards!
  • A memorable little place with a rich history in the very walls. but of course everyone misses the old days when Ms. Shirley was with us, coaxing & tickling a lively tune out of the old ivories...
  • The bar menu is hard to resist, but go for the burger and avoid the "calamari steak." Your curiosity is not worth the pain.
  • The steaks need A1 but the drinks are strong!
  • Dirty martinis and jazz music go hand in hand. Love this place
  • Go for the drinks, not the food.
  • Old world charm ("room" was originally English, deconstructed and reconstructed in America), great steaks, and a generally nice place. A little dark, but still nice.
  • Piano bar extraordinaire. Great people watching.
  • Best piano bar in all of San Diego ..gonna miss this spot...
  • Kevin makes a mean martini and will sort you out with some blue cheese olives if you ask him nicely.
  • El lugar ea muy confortable y ella comida est increble.
  • Good late night dining.
  • Great live music at nigh , cocktails, supper-club.
  • Live music, friendly neighbors, kind hosts. This makes a great atmosphere. And it's open late. So don't hesitate to jump in.
  • remember to tip the musicians - they pay for everything that you see making music
  • Love this place. Delightfully dark and cozy and a great place to hang out with friends. Also cheesy fries and cheap strong drinks.
  • Nostalgic goodness
