Liquor Store Signage San Diego

Another classic liquor store on El Cajon Boulevard is Boulevard Liquor. Advertising the "coldest beer in town" the Boulevard can be a nice stop on a hot day.

The Falcon Liquorstore catches the eye of passersby both in the day and evening. The glow of the liquor store sign just permeates the evening air. Check out how the neon lights up the sidewalk with the reddish and orange neon glow.

Just north of downtown in the Banker's Hill neighborhood of San Diego is the world famous (well, at least "local famous") 1st and Ivy Market and Liquor. Stop by to grab some munchies as you stand under the Lindbergh Field flight path. Not sure if this is a "liquor" store or "market"? According to an eyewitness, the vertical sign isn't sure either, alternating flashes between the two.

 

 

ABC Liquor

Another liquor store find can be seen in the Ocean Beach neighborhood off Voltaire St. Perhaps a plain sort of sign, this ABC Liquor. But retro old. Rumor states that this sign has been around since the 1940's. Fact or fiction?

Now this is a liquor store sign! Pacific Liquor on El Cajon Blvd. sports a bottle pouring, you guessed it, liquor! Another roadside find in the great So Cal city of San Diego.

 

 

Mystery Liquor

Yes, it is the legendary "Mystery Liquor" store off University Ave., in San Diego. Why is it labeled "mystery?" Is it because of the "mysterious" concoctions in the 'fridges just waiting to be gulped? Or is it the "mysterious" meats on sale? Or is it because the source of this neon sign is a "mystery?" Let's leave this a mystery.

Supposedly one can not have too many liquor stores. This shot of Ray's Liquor off 30th Street is standard fare.


Here's what Ray's Liquor sign looks like at night. Though it's just backlit plastic, it looks good nonetheless.
