3. Urban Mo’s Bar and Grill:

The “Best Gay Bar” is located in the heart of Hill Crest, San Diego’s LGBTQ+ community. Urban MO’s is a hetero-friendly gay restaurant that makes the best burgers in San Diego, hands down. We’re colorful, fun. The best time you’ll have on any given afternoon, and an even better time in the evening.

We believe that cocktail glasses should be adorned with plastic farm animals. MO’s is more than a bar with the best Happy Hour in Hillcrest – we’re part of what makes Hillcrest, Hillcrest.
