Johnny V — The place to be
Upscale dining and nightclub action has a spot on the streets of Grand and Garnet in Pacific Beach thanks to Johnny V, the beach’s premier restaurant, bar, lounge and nightclub. Faithful to the beach-loving residents who frequent Johnny V, they offer a remarkable blend of downtown sophistication and laid back attitude – all at affordable beach area prices.
The dining room at this hip nightclub resembles an outdoor sidewalk café and features a tempting, mixed menu of California Coastal Cuisine. Selections include a wide variety of items such as: great sandwiches, Mexican favorites, steak dishes, seafood and various pasta entrees. Some recommendations are the Vodka and Mushroom Pasta with Chicken and the La Paz Shrimp, a flavorful dish of tequila marinated tiger shrimp sautéed in olive oil, white wine, garlic, cilantro, Serrano chili peppers, lime juice and tomatoes, all tossed with rotini pasta. For the steak lovers, there is the Mushroom and Bacon Filet Mignon, a tender steak wrapped in bacon, stuffed with mushrooms and topped with a rich peppercorn sauce.
Be sure to stick around after dinner as the nightclub fills up and the crowd spills out onto the spacious dance floor, one of the largest among the beach’s clubs. DJs will spin some of your favorite tunes while the bartenders masterfully mix up perfect cocktails. For something a little extra special, reserve one of the plush VIP booths where you will be given the royal treatment and a front-row view to all the action on the dance floor.
Johnny V also has numerous flat screen TVs for you to check out, and two pool tables where the games are always free. Happy Hour is offered Tuesday thru Saturday with Friday night’s Johnny V’s TGIF happy hour offering some especially great deals with $2 well drinks and complimentary appetizers. Wednesday night offers a great deal for the college-aged crowd on a tight budget serving up pasta dinners with salad for just $4.95.
For a fun grown-up night on the town, forget downtown and head to Pacific Beach’s coolest nightspot – Johnny V.
