GOOD TIME DESIGN
Good Time Design is an all-encompassing restaurant and entertainment venue design and consulting firm located in San Diego, California. Created in 2006 by businessman and hospitality entrepreneur, Ty Hauter, the company has rapidly grown to own and operate numerous unique venues. Good Time Design’s portfolio includes diverse restaurants, bars and nightclubs including current projects Moonshine Flats, The Blind Burro, and Bub’s at the Ballpark and past projects Wave House, Bootlegger and Typhoon Saloon. 2016 marked the opening of Good Time Design’s first venue in Nashville, Tennessee, Cerveza Jack’s, as well as the acquisition of The George Jones, a four-story, 40,000 square foot entertainment venue in the heart of Nashville.
With his roots in a small Midwestern town, Ty attended Eastern Illinois University, graduating with a degree in political science. He worked in various watering holes throughout college, and got his start in larger scale hospitality operations while working the Chicago nightclub scene before moving to San Diego in 1990. With more than 600+ employees and $70 million in projects and operations in 2016, Hauter has made a name for himself in San Diego, most notably in the community of East Village. Ty and his company, Good Time Design, started with The Double Deuce, The Tipsy Crow and the original Whiskey Girl. Since then, the company has grown, now operating several influential restaurants and bars throughout San Diego and Nashville.
Good Time Design has focused on launching diverse restaurants and bars near Petco Park, including Bub’s at the Ballpark, The Blind Burro, Cat Eye Club, Lucky’s Lunch Counter, Moonshine Flats and The Deck at Moonshine Flats. In addition to the strong East Village presence, Good Time Design revamped a 9-hole executive golf course in Point Loma’s Liberty Station which they renamed The Loma Club, the company’s first foray into the golfing industry. In 2016, Good Time Design expanded into Pacific Beach with its newest additions, Cerveza Jack’s and Moonshine Beach (sister venue to Downtown’s Moonshine Flats).
Looking forward to 2017, the company is excited for many new endeavors in Nashville, Tennessee and bringing the hospitality and innovation that Good Time Design was built on to restaurant and bar goers throughout the country.
