If nightlife had a baby with beach life, it would look like Bar West, and the parents would be proud. Pacific Beach's sleek nightclub near the water now dishes tacos, ceviche and other noshes of the ocean persuasion from Oscar's Mexican Seafood, the neighborhood taco shop with a cult following, from 5 to 10 p.m. each day ('cept Mondays and Wednesdays). And because no right-minded taco taker would dare one-fist it, they're serving Mexican-inspired craft cocktails c/o the Snake Oil Cocktail Co. boys to complement each dish's flavor profile.
