Editorial Review of
Formerly the beloved South Park watering hole, Sparky's, Hamilton's Tavern came under new ownership in 2006 but has managed to maintain the homey neighborhood dive bar atmosphere. Hamilton's prides itself on the selection of bottled beers and taps, and what a selection it is at 130 bottle varieties and 25 on-tap brews. Curious about what you are drinking? Consult the chalkboard behind the bar and learn exactly what's in the mix, including the important stats like alcohol content. The jukebox has one of the best rock and blues selections in San Diego and the crowd is mainly the laid-back, beer-loving, pool-playing type.
