Is the mall--er, city of-- Emeryville on its way to becoming a new cocktail hub? With Prizefighter set to open later this month in the old Kitty's location, comes news that Alex Smith has left his position as bar manager of Gitane to open up a Honor, a new bar and grill.

Set to open in the old Sushi Village space at Powell and Hollis streets, a mere seven blocks away from Prizefighter, Honor is designed to be a casual neighborhood spot serving pub fare and quality cocktails. As a 2011 Bar Star and one of SF's most creative bartenders, we're excited to see what kind of menu he comes up.

No set opening date yet, but the tentative opening is sometime next month.

Honor, 1411 Powell (at Hollis), Emeryville

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
