Dirty Water, a Terribly Named New Bar, Is Coming to the Twitter Building

Well, we're really scraping the bottom of the barrel for bar names if it's come to this. A new bar called Dirty Water is coming to the Twitter building from former Press Club GM Kristian Cosentino, according to Eater SF. The bar's name and concept -- 50+ beer taps, 100+ wines by the glass, rare spirits -- hasn't changed since it was announced last September, but the prime real estate offered in this deal makes it a higher profile opening. And thus, the busy bees at the Twitter hive will have to drink in a place whose name has shades of Zoolander's homelessness-inspired fashion line, Derelicte.

Questionable name choice aside, this is the latest in a string of places announced for the mid-Market building. AQ is opening a French bistro, Bon Marché, and Tablehopper brought word today that Azalina's Malaysian is also opening a brick-and-mortar there. With Daniel Patterson's Alta CA kitty-corner and Top Chef alum Suvir Saran coming into the NEMA apartments across the street, this stretch of Market is turning into S.F.'s new restaurant row.

Just, uh, don't drink the water?

  • 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.'"
