Tipsy Crow and Double Deuce, San Diego
San Diego really comes to life when the sun goes down. There are so many options for entertainment. You can take a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride through historic Seaport Village, have a dinner cruise on the bay, or visit one of the many nightclubs that line the downtown streets.
We stopped into two local haunts, the Tipsy Crow and the Double Deuce. At the Tipsy Crow, we sat down with Assistant General Manager Sherman Shoate, who talked about the hip club and showed us some of the fun, unique things The Tipsy Crow has to offer.
The Tipsy Crow has three levels, and the third floor is known as “The Nest.” Don’t forget your smoking jacket and pipe, because this level is all about relaxing over drinks and good conversation or a game of pool. It’s got a great atmosphere, with high-backed red velour chairs, a fireplace, and a poolroom decorated like a library.
As we descended to the second floor, commonly known as “The Main,” it was time to raise the energy level for some serious fun. There was tabletop shuffleboard, music, and tight-fitting booths for friends to pile into. However, the best and by far the coolest part of the Tipsy Crow was The Drink Exchange.
The Drink Exchange works just like the stock market and is displayed on video screens throughout the bar on all floors. The price of each drink goes up as its popularity increases. When orders for each drink slow, the price goes down. You can get great drinks on the cheap if you know how to play the market!
The bottom level of the Tipsy Crow is “The Underground,” which features live comedy performances and a late-night dance club. The Tipsy Crow knows how to keep the party happening.
After a round at The Tipsy Crow we headed down the street and met up with Beth Putrow, the manager at the Double Deuce.
This place is all about having a raucous good time. The Double Deuce has music on four levels, and two rooms with multiple video DJs pumping out the best in party music, rock n’ roll, new country hits and old-school dance favorites. There was even a mechanical bull! None of us were brave enough to take it on, but it made for some great entertainment.
We arrived early to talk with Beth, but once the crowd started rolling in there was a constant stream of people coming through the door. Before we knew it, the place was packed. Everyone there was between 21 and 55, dancing, laughing, drinking and bull riding. The weekly happy hour at the Double Deuce is very popular with the fun-loving local crowd. They host an assortment of happy-hour deals which change each month, and they never have a hard time filling the place. Every night of the week there is something different going on from Facebook Fan parties to Let Loose Fridays. It’s easily double the fun at the Double Deuce.
