Taking over the former EXY space in downtown San Diego is Quality Social – a sophisticated dive bar concept from Chicago industry leaders. What if all your favorite elements of a classic neighborhood bar were elevated to new luxury standards? Take Pabst Blue Ribbon drink specials and oversize red vinyl booths and add in live art installations, American-European street food with 100% local ingredients and oh-so-much-more. Quality Social isn’t trying to be a dive bar – it’s a playful juxtaposition of all that we love about neighborhood dives, presented in a new Quality light with no detail spared. With Boones Farm on the menu, a speakeasy in the back, a menu created by a Top Chef recruit who travels with salami in his suit case, a vintage photo booth on display and a champagne parlor in the see-through ladies bathroom, Quality Social invites you to embrace the deliberate contradictions and create your own experience.
