Visit: Unknown

First time here! I'm no scholar, but I can pretty much guarantee that Mothership is the world's only outer-space themed all-Vegan Tiki bar. I didn't note the Vegan part before going to check it out for dinner and a cocktail — but I had their scallion pancake, which I quite enjoyed. I also tried their own variation on a Painkiller, called the Mindkiller — made with two kinds of rum (one of them overproof) and "Tang cordial," which seems to be their own special syrup made with the drink that astronauts drink. I liked it a lot! Nice atmosphere, great sci-fi decor and a very friendly bartender named Javi (hope I'm spelling your name right there, buddy!) made it a pleasant visit.

Mothership Bar & Restaurant – San Diego, California, United States

Opened August 2nd, 2022.

Mothership is a sci-fi tropical themed bar in San Diego, CA that is a partnership between the owner of Kindred and CH Projects (False Idol, Polite Provisions, Raised By Wolves and more).

Designed by Ignacio “Notch” Gonzalez, Mothership imagines a restaurant and cocktail lounge build from the ruins of a crash landed ship on a tropical alien planet.

From the Mothership website:

"The Ancient Astronaut Shuttle Crew, aboard the A.A.S.C. MOTHERSHIP, boldly explores the darkest, furthest edges of the tropical-flavor galaxy. Cosmic rays blast from a solar flare and blow the MOTHERSHIP’s electronics into disarray. The psycho-space marauders are left with no option but to execute emergency landing protocols on the nearest planet. Off-board, the tight-knit Crew explores the lush surroundings. They discover no sentient life, but unexplainable events occur and a lurking presence is felt. The mysterious, uncharted ecosystem has few resources to repair the ship -- but ample plant life and curious, intoxicating spirits. In time, the Crew accepts that they are marooned in a sinister, fertile paradise. They establish a colony and fashion the ship into a base camp, including quarters of leisure. Together, the fearless crew members commit to adventurous coexistence with the natural life of the planet, not in desperate peril, but on a ...PERMANENT VACATION."
