Tabletop Commons started out as an idea I had while playing a certain futuristic miniature war game at a friend’s house while drinking beer. I thought, “I could do this all the time!” It occurred to me that even though San Diego is a Mecca of pop culture and home to the largest comic book convention in the world, I couldn’t think of a single place that catered to that population year round. After a lot of thought and a lot of research I decided I could open a bar with a tabletop gaming and comic book theme. An opportunity to purchase a business came up and now San Diego’s first and only bar with a board game and comic book theme is opening up right in the heart of Hillcrest.
Tabletop Commons is a space you can come to and stay all day playing games with great people. The kitchen focuses on creative comfort food, decadent desserts, happy hour plates, bar snacks, and weekend brunch. Quench your thirst with local beers on tap or with one of our creative cocktails from the bar.
We here at Tabletop Commons hope to win your hearts and be the place you come to when you want to play awesome games, meet great people and talk about your favorite shows, comics, and books. We will be having viewing parties, specific game nights, game reviews and demos, cosplay events, and everything you could ever want, plus booze. We take our merriment seriously and we want you to have a great time, every time.
