Town Hall Owners Plan a Wine-on-Tap Bar, Audio Geeks Reveal They're Coffee Geeks As Well

Posted By on Thu, Mar 3, 2011 at 7:24 AM


The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco restaurant scene.

7x7's Bits and Bites blog is giddy at the chance to scoop the rest of us in reporting that the project Town Hall's owners are opening at 740 Valencia will be a wine bar. Even more timely, it will be dispensing varietals and blends from 38 tanks. The food: simple tavern fare. Name? Opening date? Don't press us for such petty details.

Eater SF, scouring the permit applications, reports that Little Bangkok in the Inner Sunset will likely be replaced by a restaurant named Manna (845 Irving). The pitch: from the name and owner's name, one hopes Korean food of some sort.

From Live SoMa comes a report that when Elite Audio Systems moves its showroom from Dogpatch to Folsom between Fourth and Fifth, it will add a drop-in coffee bar. No word on what beans they'll be brewing; perhaps they'll be able to froth the milk just by setting it on a subwoofer.

  • 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.'"
