Repose Coffee Spruces Up Lower Divis, Parklet to Follow

Divisadero might be the new Valencia, but it doesn’t yet have the density of coffee shops and parklets that the Mission’s increasingly post-hip drag does. Yes, there’s Vinyl, Mojo, and of course, the Mill, but considering the huge numbers of cafes that have gone into the Castro in the last 18 months, the neighborhood can clearly sustain a few more (especially as so many morning commuters cross Divis).

So the new location of the Sebastopol-based Repose Coffee, just above the southern rump of the commercial strip, is more than welcome. A slim space, taller than it is wide, Repose is full of gilt mirrors, plants, and grillwork, and the Spotify playlist is more likely than not to be “Hipster Cocktail Party.” They’re pulling shots from Ritual Coffee, and the plan is to get a parklet going in the net few months. The nearest two outdoor public spaces are up the street, outside 639 and 736 Divis (outside Mojo and the Mill, as it turns out), and they tend to be crowded. But if you’d rather just kick it indoors, the front corner smells of irises, which is the nicest possible smell after a hot cup of pour-over drip.

  • 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.'"
