Draft South Mission gastropub and Cannonball sushi bar come to Belmont Park
After a roller-coaster ride of redesign and construction, two new fun locations are now set to premiere at Mission Beach’s amusement area. Draft South Mission, at 3105 Ocean Front Walk, San Diego CA, 92109, is a gastropub concentrating on the fine aspects of beers in all its numerous tastes. Sixty draft beer spigots arranged around the 12,000 square feet of space will provide plenty of refreshment while watching sports, brewing videos and other entertainment on the 31 foot high wall monitor.
Sitting atop Draft South Mission will be Cannonball, a rooftop, partially open-air sushi/saki/cocktail lounge. Both new venues replace long-time Mission Beach fixture Canes, and the new enterprises expect to attract a mixture of the traditional beach crowd along with tourists and upscale partyers from around the city.
The new pub offers two outdoor areas adjacent to the boardwalk where patrons can sit and sip selections from more than forty different bottled brews, and several dozen drafts from the taps. More than half of the beers are local San Diego products, another 25% are California-made. There may be the largest selection of newly-cool Belgian suds west of Brussels.
Providing something to wash down with your beer, Draft South Mission offers such California beach cuisine as ribeye steaks, pistachio-crusted salmon, corn dogs made from pork bellies, and on the weekends, lemon meringue flapjacks and French toast BLTs (!) While the party downstairs is raging, up on the roof Cannonball explodes into 6,000 square feet of sushi heaven. After ascending in a glass elevator, guests have their choice of dining and drinking under the stars, inside the transparent sushi bar in a cube, or at the more conventional bar and restaurant. As well as sake, of course, the drink menu is tilted to rum, gin and vodka cocktails, all mixed with herbs, fresh fruit, and syrups produced on-site. Cannonball is scheduled to open soon.
