Inspired by San Diego’s appreciation for craft beer and craving for fresh, creative cuisine, Union Kitchen & Tap is uniquely suited to provide guests with the best of both worlds. Located in the heart of San Diego’s Historic Gaslamp Quarter, Union Kitchen epitomizes the Southern California lifestyle with great music, a stylish yet relaxed atmosphere and of course, a full suite of local craft beet selections. Our relentless pursuit to showcase San Diego’s finest craft beets and premium whiskey brands is evident upon entering the front door.

The Union vibe is an endearing combination of industrial age charm and effortless sophistication, boasting impressive surroundings of rustic reclaimed wood elements and rough-hewn metal accents. Union Kitchen is located steps away from the San Diego Convention Center and many downtown hotels & resorts. For folks who stroll by the expansive warehouse style doors, the main dining room and whiskey bar welcome all who pass to step into Union’s inviting interior and savor the tantalizing scents.

Executive Chef Colten Lemmer has created an award winning farm to table culinary experience using fresh organic herbs and vegetables, natural, hormone free beef and fresh, locally caught seafood selections. The menu is teaming with tasty surprises, combining New American cuisine with southern comfort inspiration. Highlights include Shrimp & Grits, Blackened Pork Tomahawk, Free Range Mary’s Chicken Brandt Farms Rib Eye and Big Eye Tuna. For those who crave something more casual, the Union Brant Beef Burger is an unparalleled, life altering experience. No matter what you’re yearning for, a visit to Union Kitchen is not complete without savoring one of our signature Flatbreads, including our signature Southern Crawfish Flatbread, Italian Sausage Flatbread, Wild Mushroom Flatbread and our BBQ Chicken Flatbread.

Union Kitchen is open for lunch and dinner daily at 11am

Weekend brunch every Saturday & Sunday includes Bottomless Mimosas! We feature live entertainment on Tuesday through Saturday evenings, and acoustic performances every Saturday & Sunday during brunch. Friday & Saturday late night grooves with live bands & local DJ’s.
