Jason Kong

Owner & Founder

Prior to moving to America’s Finest City in 2013, Jason had a great deal of success in the service and hospitality industry in Atlanta, Georgia. He owned and operated a New York style deli, a multi-unit juice bar, and managed the 2nd tallest hotel in the U.S. He was also one of Jezebel Magazine’s Atlanta’s Most Beautiful People!  

Being a downtown local himself, Jason saw the need for a place to go for great food, craft beer, and a fun time while avoiding Gaslamp crowds and prices. Also, wanting to pursue his dream of becoming a Korean pop star, he wanted to provide a place with karaoke on weekends in downtown San Diego!

You might catch him playing sports, restaurant hopping, singing karaoke, or visiting the local dog park with his frenchie, Bruno.
