Grand Opening of Portside Pier

Grand Opening of Portside Pier

Just in time for the end of summer, Portside Pier officially opened on Tuesday, July 28, 2020! The Brigantine’s 42,000 square foot, multi-restaurant venue features plenty of outdoor dining along the North Embarcadero Waterfront. We are thrilled to have this new venue walking distance from our hotel, The Bristol San Diego – A Boutique Hotel.

This waterfront venue has been five years in the making from local hospitality group, The Brigantine, Inc. CEO Mike Morton Jr. has commented that the Portside Pier remains true to the original vision, which is modeled after a fishing boat, with curved steel and zinc shingles on a barrel-shaped roof. It also features a glass structure at either end that are meant to resemble fishing baskets.

Our guests can now look forward to dining outdoors at these brand-new restaurants, Brigantine on the Bay, Miguel’s Cocina, and Ketch Grill and Taps. There is also a new walk up cafe, Portside Coffee & Gelato, and a beautiful second level viewing deck and perimeter walkway on the waterfront that the public has free access to. I cannot wait to try some of Miguel’s famous tortilla chips and white sauce and then get gelato while enjoying San Diego’s amazing water views.
