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
