    Saturday 90s to current hip hop. Easy to get in - no dress code or cover, line moves fast (even during a match.com event whether u knew about it or not). Plenty of seats. Acoustics are balls though.

    An amazing spot, wide open gallery loft space with live performing painter and djs. Awesome idea! Strongly recommend you to stop by at least once if you are a visitor like me.

    The music they play here is a teriffic mix of indie and mainstream altrock. Come here on a weeknight for a chill night of drinking. Though sometimes they do host special events that pack the place.

    Calling a 1912 warehouse home, the original brick walls and industrial garage doors put you on notice that this is the spot to relax and enjoy the best pizza in the city. Read more

    This is some of the best pizza in San Diego. Stick with the basics. White 5 cheese or a pepperoni with red sauce. You can't go wrong!

    I can see why it's called basic. Red sauce is warmed tomato paste. Pizza was bland. Can't see why everyone raved over mashed potato pizza. Meatball pizza was ok. Overpriced.

    Killer margarita pizza! Reserve the inner lounge area for your private party, as this pizza joint turns into a club on weekend nights.

    Come for Basic's art Tuesdays: indie | alternative electronic | hip-hop music with local art as the back drop. Refreshing & locally supported...

    Challenge the bartenders to a margarita stand-off. Cheryl versus Mike. Tell one that the other's is better, and have him/her try to "out-do" the other one. And have a great night.

    For some reason these " build your own pizza " places end up being super expensive and utterly unsatisfactory to me. Crowded , noisy and uncomfortable

    The name says it all-Basic. try a mason jar cocktail, or a slice of mash potato, coal fired pizza. This spot is geared to the locals. Read more

    The pizza is okay, the bar during normal hours is okay. The after 10:30pm scene on a Saturday night is pumpin' though; great DJ. The women here tend to be very friendly (your mileage may vary).

    Get @barbasicpizza's white pie. It's got mashed potatoes and bacon. If that doesn't sound good to you then I'm sorry you're just dumb.

    The cloth on Basic's pool table is stained, dirty, & needs replacement; but it's a 10' long Brunswick and playing is free :-)

    No drink specials midweek. :( No way Im spending the same price for a drink as a Saturday night when there are 10 people in the place. Epic Fail

    Mashed potato pizza...you're thinking, "huh?" TRY IT. Amazing pizza and a pretty cool vibe.
  • Guillermo F.
    Buenas pizzas. Un poco caro por la zona. Ambiente agradable. Servicio frío e impersonal. Comida de calidad adecuada. Solo si se está turisteando por la zona.
