Prospect Bar & Grill is located on the second floor of building 1025. The location makes for beautiful scenery throughout the entire restaurant. It doesn’t matter if you’re watching a game at the bar or outside on the patio, you have a clear view of our beautiful Pacific Ocean and downtown La Jolla. We chose to sit outside on the patio around the fire-pit table. It made for the perfect location to meet new friends and catch up with old ones — even on a chilly February evening.
The happy hour on Monday seemed to be a bit of a bust for us. Only because they were out of Ahi Poke, which was the special for “Girls Night Out” and I was looking forward to that ALLLLLL day. I went with the “Guys Night In” special: Flat Iron Steak, mashed potatoes, and asparagus. Not poke, but absolutely delicious and I left a happy girl. The sauce that came with the steak was a perfect accoutrement; very flavorful. With all of the happy hour choices, everyone should leave here happy.
All in all the group had a great time here and will definitely be coming back. Service was on-point, food was prepared with skill, and location, location, location. La Jolla is lucky to have this spot. Let’s make sure to keep it around! So if you’re in the area be sure to stop by and tell them the bUZZ Ladies sent you.
Why should you go? To play pool with friends, watch a game, happy hour, or possibly a casual date.Recommended for:

I have been here twice on Mondays for Salsa night. There is social dancing throughout the night, if there are performances it is usually around 11pm-12am. The crowd is very mixed with the retired crowd of La Jolla combined with some hip salseros and some students from UC San Diego. They play mostly salsa with some bachata, merengue, etc. The venue is modern and clean, albeit small. At night the tables are moved and the couches are pushed against the wall to reveal the dance floor. There is also a tiny outdoor patio if you get hot, which it does get quite steamy. There is no bag check-in which is unfortunate.
One night was a Haiti Fundraiser event and it there was cover (5 dollars I believe) that went towards to cause. The salseros of San Diego were definitely there this night doing shines the whole night. There were about 5+ San Diego Latin teams that performed that night and all of them were impressive. It was one of the dancers birthdays so I was definitely in for a TREAT when they did a salsa birthday dance for him. For those of you that are not familar with a "salsa birthday dance," you should YouTube it.
The second time I went to PBL was not a special fundraiser but there were still some performers. My university's salsa team occasionally performs here so I come out to support.Recommended for:

This modern, trendster joint has delicious snacks, people watching 'to die for' and interesting drings. Located on a second floor platform, it offers up beautiful views of the sea. The prices and service were really reasonable, too. Try the homemade Hummus, The Shrimp and Avocado Crevice and Street Tacos. Nom!Recommended for:

Cool lounge that is on the second story of a building with a great view of la jolla and the ocean. There's nightly live music and fire pits outside. The food is good and the service is great.
