I made sure to give this place a visit after I was in San Diego a few years ago but didn't get a chance to. I actually ended up at the place three times. After the first visit I knew I needed to come back.

The place is self seating, with some metal tables and padded stools throughout. The bar is oddly shaped, curving around a pillar on one side. In front of the bar is a TV and a chalkboard with all the beers on-tap above the taps. There's a little booklet they hand out with all the beers as well (including bottles) and another with food. There is also some outside seating.

The beers available are mostly from the area which is great, and it's what I look for when visiting a bar. I was able to get a glass of Pliny the Elder which they get in whenever it's available. They food menu isn't that big but the food is pretty good, somewhat on the fancy side.

As others have mentioned in their reviews, the place is laid back, which isn't a surprise considering it's in San Diego.

Neighborhood is an alehouse/gastropub on a corner in the redeveloped, but still somewhat edgy, East Village neighborhood in the center of downtown San Diego. It’s a bit on the trendy side, but the beer selection is amazing and the atmosphere is modern/casual and inviting.

Interestingly, the beer list is categorized by flavors. On our visit, there were four “Light/Fruity/Wheaty”, 6 “Hoppy”, 6 “Malty”, 12 “Belgian/Spicy/Sour”, and one cask beer. The selection is largely local craft beers plus a few craft beers from elsewhere in the US and some Belgians.

The metal bar is topped with dark wood and lined by padded stools. Also in the bar area is another stand-alone tall counter with the same stools.

The remainder of the seating has dark wood tables with black padded chairs and benches (the one we sat on had “BEER” stitched into it). Large glass windows are on two sides. These windows fold up to let in air. On the sidewalk outside on both sides are outdoor seating sections partially shaded by large awnings.

The floors are worn wood and concrete. The high black ceiling has exposed ducts, painted rosebuds, and strange artisanal light bulbs hanging down from black metal tubes. A striking black and white mosaic with the San Diego skyline is on the back wall. On one side wall is a large painting of Sigmund Freud holding a hamburger and behind the bar is a smaller painting of Jesus Christ holding a hamburger. Also behind the bar is a huge elk head over the chalkboard beer list.

The food is upscale - both pub food variations and some innovative choices. The small plate we tried was excellent (fried olives, cherry peppers, sauteed almonds and strawberries).

Neighborhood {No "The"} is a craft beer bar which was plucked out because it is one of the _allied pub members_ of the San Diego Brewers Guild. It is also quite close to downtown, making it one of the easier venues to get to without an automobile.

It has 28 taps {with Pabst Blue Ribbon being the macro interloper} and one beer on cask. Its cuisine is diverse and accomodating. I had lunch here on Friday: A steak sandwich, and its regular kennebec fries. The sandwich was good, and the fries managed to be equally as good. Pricing is average (everything is ala carte). The food is above average.

The atmosphere here was very friendly and cordial. I hope that wasn't due to a special effort {The AHA Conference was greeted on its menu chalkboard.}. There is outdoor dining available as well. I wound up at the bar, at the seat against the north wall, which is where the outdoor tables are. The windows and doors were propped open.
Beers here were in very good shape. I do recall having the Ballast Point Even Keel on cask, and the Craftsman 4 Cylinder Pale Ale.

I'm giving Neighborhood a four star rating because of its diverse beer selections. It is a venue which gets the occasional special keg from a brewery which you otherwise wouldn't get.

Transit options: It is downtown, bunky. If you do not arrive here via transit, you did not try. There are no buses which will drop you off on the corner of G St. & 8th Ave., but there are two bus routes on Market St. (1 block south), three bus routes on 10th Ave. [southbound - northbound runs of those routes are on 11th Ave.] (2 - 3 blocks east), a clutch of bus routes on Broadway (3 blocks north), & the San Diego Trolley Orange & Blue Lines at the Park & Market Station (4 blocks east and 1 block south).

Great and I mean GREAT bar!!! First off, the female bartenders....way HOT and they know their shit about the beer. The place has a great selection for everyone including hop heads and folks like me that like it malty. The food is eclectic but have to try the deviled eggs they have....unreal. Happy hour for them is 2-4-1 of local San Diego beers, good deal. Crowd picked up after about 7pm or so when I left. I dont do crowds.
