American | Downtown / Gaslamp, San Diego

WhipHand American Brasserie. WhipHand means having an advantageous or controlling position, which is exactly what you’ll get with this restaurant’s self-serve 24-tap beer bank.
American Brasserie is a take on the traditional French brasseries found across Europe. Unpretentious bars and restaurants that served simple food with hearty portions meant to be shared. A neighborhood spot where locals and visitors alike could gather and have delicious food served along side their many draft beers. The French word “brasserie” literally means brewery, but has adapted from their 19th century microbrewery origins to cover the many expanding upscale pub restaurants that boast its name. Our particular American Brasserie will be featuring 24 self-serve draft beer taps along with a full cocktail bar serving up some unique libations. At the root of our menu you’ll find classic American staples, but with each dish featuring its own distinctive twist that takes it from basic to exceptional. More
