What does happy hour mean to you?

Not quite the shrimp taco people in Baja California call gobernador but it tastes delicious!

For us at Cueva Bar happy hour represents two hours of catching up with someone while enjoying our tapas, carefully selected wines, and craft beer. It is also a way for restaurants to invite people to come at the hours that are usually the slowest in the restaurant industry. What's the catch? None really, unless you consider paying a little less for your food and drinks a catch.

At Cueva Bar, we offer the whole tapas menu at two dollars off, and the wine list by the glass and all craft beer and local cider on tap at three dollars off from the listed menu price.

On Taco Tuesday we offer our tacos on the menu at happy hour price from opening to closing. On Wednesday, our rosé wine is $3 off all night, and Thursday, well, we are still working on figuring out what to offer on Thursdays. I've got an idea that I've been considering and it might have to do something with our wine club perks, thinking 50% off wine bottles for those who are members of our wine club.

So what is your favourite happy hour in San Diego? What do they offer?

I'd love to hear your feedback in order to continuously find better ways to serve you.

Cueva Bar is Chef Oz’s approach to the concept of Tapas with an essence of Mexican cuisine, known for continuous reinvention and embracing evolution, where food is prepared in a cosy, relaxed and inclusive atmosphere without the white table cloth element, just a purely human relationship fostered by those who dine in the all are welcomed University Heights neighbourhood gem.

Letting the inspiration flow and keeping balance in mind, Chef Oz marries Mexico’s ingredients and flavours with elements from around the U.S and the world using local-organic produce and vendors to produce both delicious and healthy dishes that have little to zero impact on our environment.

Cueva Bar in San Diego California offers a fusion tapas inspired menu with plenty of omnivores, gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options.

Our happy hour is from Tuesday to Saturday from 4 pm to 6 pm. Happy hour offerings are $2 off all food on the menu and $3 off all drinks by the glass.
