Don't go here. They are rude and could care less about your business. Their management has gone down the tubes. Plenty of other good spots in SD with people that actually value your business and want to make you happy.

Of all the typical downtown bars and clubs to shout house definitely stands out to me. It's a really good time without all of the pretentious attitude. It's almost impossible not to have fun here.

You are sure to have a great time if you like dueling piano bars. The amount of energy that is going on at any given moment during their performances is fantastic, and to be a part of it is overwhelming. You simply can't get enough of the

The place is a novelty. Good for a one time experience. Go on Wednesdays, they have 1.50 domestics. The staff are all pretty much jerks, especially the doorguys. They act pious and you just want to shake them and say...uh, YOU'RE A DOOR GUY AT A PIANO BAR! GET IT THROUGH YOUR HEAD! The piano monkey acts are racist/homophobic/misogynists but think it's funny. This place is exceptional for brain-dead people, "flamboyant" woman, and anyone they is pre-intoxicated so that you may drown out the cheap unfunny comments spewing from the performers' faces.

I am a regular on Wednesday nights. $1.50 beers and some seriously talented musicians make a great combo. Its always busy with a mostly middle aged crowd getting a little messy which adds greatly to my entertainment.

A fun place to bring friends of ALL ages. We've taken parents there and had a blast! The pianists and servers are awesome when they perform. It's all crude, bathroom humor, but it's a great place to embarrass someone on a birthday, listen to some music, and just have a few drinks.

I have lived in San Diego now for 5 years and I dont normally go downtown because its to expensive. But after going to the Shout House for my 21st birthday 3 years ago I wont go anywhere else. Just walking by this bar after the piano's start playing you can feel the energy and excitment radiating from the building. If you like music, being loud, and fun this is the place you need to go!!! The staff is always freindly and despite how busy it gets they are always there if you need a refill on your drink, the piano players are a trip and really make this place special, dont feel afraid to go up and talk to them. I highly recommend this place for people of all ages. I recommend this place to everyone who comes to San Diego!

Pros: a non stop good time

Cons: have to show up early to get a good table

So the guy who said he couldn't get in because he didn't have his passport, well duh! like anyone excepts a foreign DL to get in anywhere...hello this isn't europe BRING the correct ID and you'll get in. How can you write a review on a place if you never got inside. plus it sounds like he just wanted to bag on everyone that night. I have to say that everytime I go to the shout house the people are so nice and fun! I had a party there for my birthday and they gave me a gift bag and called me on stage and the manager came over to me and was like if there is anything you need let me know. This place is so fun way better than any bar downtown. it is totally interactive and fun and the bartenders poor strong drinks. If you want to do something super fun and different you should go here.

i have to the say that i am in San Diego by myself and i went out last night (sat night) and i couldn't get into the Sweetwater saloon (hard rock hotel). i stumbled into The Shout. I f__king loved it. The beer was priced right, the women were beautiful and easy to talk to, everyone was smashed, and the MUSIC was pretty damned good too. Hopefully, I'll get there tonight too.

This has to be one of my favorite places in San Diego to go have a couple of drinks and enjoy a great night with dueling pianos and lot's of laughs. They have drink specials pretty much every night, on Thursdays it's College Night ($2.50 lunchbox shots and $3 beer and free admission with your college ID).

Very fun, and very affordable place to go and have an amazing time. I would highly recommend if you haven't been downtown and are looking for somewhere to break you in. Also very fun for birthday parties, just had mine there and everyone had an awesome time

This is my favorite place in San Diego to go and have a good time. You can request anything and everything for the talented pianists to play and sing. The beer is a dollar before seven pm too! I have a great time every time I go here.

I had the unfortunate experience last night of having organised to meet friends at this place, having flown in from Europe to celebrate my 30th birthday. My girlfriend and I didn't even get in the door because I didn't have my passport with me, despite having a European drivers license, residence card and various other forms of ID. We asked to see the manager but the security guy at the door claimed to *be* the manager so we phoned them hoping the real manager might be more sensible, but no - no passport, no entry. We tried the brewery next door but they had some lame excuse for closing the kitchen early so we ended up across the road at Hennessy's Irish Pub which wasn't bad.

In any case we got a quick look inside and it looked very ordinary. Even if I had my passport I would have reservations showing it to them, and I really don't think I'd bother because San Diego has plenty of better establishments.

Summary: Don't waste your time.

Update: It's interesting that my negative views are shared by another reviewer, and one of the two positive reviewers (reece422) reads like it's written my a PR rep for these guys and is over two years old.

This bar, located in Gaslamp is a fun, laid back place to go with friends. You can make song requests and dedications to your friends. The performers know a large variety of songs and can play almost anything. Definitely a good time.

They pack the place on weekends so don't expect to get good service when they could easily fill your seat with another victim, uh, customer. In addition to the $10 cover for everyone if you have a party of 8 or more you will be charged 18% gratuity whether you like it or not - whether they deserve it or not - whether you have 8+ people on your tab or everyone is paying separately. At restaurants it's clear who is in your party - it's who is sitting at your table, 1 table. How do you determine a "party" at a bar? We were rudely informed that is server discretion. Don't meet anyone there and don't talk to people at other tables or they will consider them part of your "party". Both the manager and the server talked down to us, trying to talk us in circles hoping we were intoxicated enough so we would just give up. I'm really sad I had such a shi**y experience because the place used to be fun.

Awesome place to go unwind after work. AWESOME drink specials, good beer and a fun atmosphere. The "dualing pianos" idea is really fun, they let the audience request songs and everybody gets really involved. Slightly older crowd, but a good place to meet people!

The atmosphere was laid back and very comfortable. The bartenders were real courteous and served quickly, which not all bartenders do. The drinks were very tasty and the prices are about average. The piano players are funny and entertaining. This is definitely worth a visit.
