Cocktail Menu – URBN Coal Fired Pizza & Bar

Submitted by Tim on March 8, 2011 – 1:03 pmNo Comment

In the ubber-trendy North Park area of San Diego on University Avenue between 31st and Iowa you will find Urbn Coal Fired Pizza & Bar. URBN Coal Fired Pizza & Bar was created as a spinoff of BASIC Urban Kitchen + Bar by industry veteran Jon Mangini.  The underlying idea was to master a handful of classics: pizza, beer and cocktails and all in a great space. The beer list is extensive with many local and craft beers on tap. The pizza is already winning awards as some of the best in the South West United States. To achieve this at the bar, Mangini brought in Nick Budrow to be Urbn’s Bar Manager who, in turn, recruited a handful of caring mixologists from around San Diego.

Now the folks at Urbn are taking it all back to the turn of the 20th century. From 6 pm to 8 pm every Monday through Thursday night, URBN will offer their take on the Classic Cocktail Hour. Utilizing time honored techniques with the most traditional turn-of-the century recipes, URBN’s Classic Cocktail Hour presents some of the most iconic spirit driven cocktails shown in their truest form. The menu features twelve well-crafted “classics” such as the Sazerac, the Negroni and the Aviation. Selections are offered at $6 each from 6-8pm on Monday through Thursday, and are regularly priced at $8 a piece during the remaining “22 hours a day,” or so says the menu.

“Over the past century, cocktails have evolved through purees, infusions and other techniques, but only a few have truly stood the test of time,” Budrow says. “The idea is to get back to the basics with the fundamentals of where modern cocktail culture first originated. Some of the most clean and straightforward cocktail recipes are the most difficult to properly prepare. When you take simple ingredients paired with excellent execution, and you do it with care, the result is great bartending as it was intended to be.”

The space has a somewhat weathered industrial feel with loads of stained metal, dark leathers and distressed woods. The drinks are classic and the pizza is, we’ve been told, spectacular.

URBN is located at 3085 University Avenue on 31st and University. Doors are open noon to midnight on Sunday, 4pm to midnight on Monday through Wednesday, 4pm to 2am on Thursday, and noon to 2am on Friday and Saturday. For more information, please visit www.urbnnorthpark.com.
