The first record of cocktails being served at 3936 30th Street was the opening night of Club Belvedere, in 1948. Just a few years later, The 1956 San Diego edition of Polk’s Business Directory in shows the location as The Office. Fast-forward to 1983, George Scolari bought & personalized his new bar, calling it Scolari’s Office. Scolari’s Office became a popular neighborhood bar and later a famous/infamous punk rock venue known all across the United States.
For the record, it was in June of 2008 that the major renovation was completed & Scolari’s Office became The Office once again.
The physical & cultural landscape of the 9-5 ‘daily grind’ or ‘rat race’ has changed in just the last decade. With smart phones, laptop computers & WiFi- we’ve adopted ways to be productive anywhere, anytime. The typical office as portrayed in movies & television is not-so-typical anymore…thinking outside the cubicle is to be expected (The Office has free WiFi & places to power up).
We can all agree that we’ve imagined this scene: kicking our feet up in the boss’s office, sitting in a leather throne behind a walnut desk, cocktail in hand (cue AMC’s hit show Mad Men). The concept behind The Office Bar combines the comfort and personality of a classic cocktail lounge with the a twist: you’re the boss!
