Success! Thanks for posting your review of The Bitter End. You’ve done the world some good today.


Everytime I come here I get picked up by Cougars. I love this place! The best in town for sure. The staff and bouncers kinda suck, but who cares. I got me my sugar mama!

I wish I could give 0 stars. WOW!!! We are a couple in our late 20's and this bar - especially the bouncers - are TERRIBLE!!!! We went to this bar after a nice dinner and were denied. The bouncer was so pompous and made up a story about denying us entry. He was incorrect about our route to the bar where he said we were ""stumbling"". He incorrectly said the street we crossed to get to the bar and was rude when we ... view more

Old-school charm amidst the boisterous Fifth Ave. crowds

My uncle and I strolled Fifth Ave. on a late Friday afternoon, looking for a decent bar with at least ONE attractive woman inside... it was still fairly early, so the odds were against us. Finally, after passing up about a half-dozen spots, we saw The Bitter End, with its well-dressed doorman, hot hostess and cocktail waitress, brass railings and dark wood trim. How bad could it be? We went inside and were served up ... view more

Good, fun cocktail bar.

This is now my first stop whenever I visit the Gaslamp Quarter. The Bitter End is simply a cocktail bar that doesn't burden itself by trying to be a restaurant. Just good cocktails and some simple bar food. Great decore, EXCELLENT liquor menu with good pricing. Service was great. Enjoy.

Great bar right in the heart of the gas lamp!

This is a great bar for whatver scene you are looking for. I have gone here on many occassions during happy hour and there is a pretty good crowd. On the weekends the bar is also usually crowded and the downstairs area has plenty of room to dance. The crowd is very diverse and tends to be a little younger. Great place to have drink if you are visiting San Diego or if you live in the area.
