Urge Gastropub, who currently have a location in Rancho Bernardo are gearing up to open a second location in South Oceanside at 2002 South Coast Highway, taking over the old Adventure Outdoor Building at the corner of Vista Way and Coast Highway.
The Gastropub’s current location serves 51 beers on tap as well as more by the bottle and serves a pretty standard across the board menu. While they tout an English pub feel the menu, with the exception of a few British standards, is broader in scope.
The new location is 7730 sq feet. I do not know if they are planning any brewing on site. At one time they had planed to open a location in Vista in an old Bally’s location called Craft Alley which would have been a Craft Brewery / Bowling concept. Doing some research It does not seem that ever came to be.
Being at the border of South Oceanside and Carlsbad will help their customer draw as will just off the freeway access. It will be interesting to see how local customers respond as craft beer is prevalent everywhere and most have their go to places for food and drink in the neighborhood.
I would look at Early Summer for an opening.
