When owner Mike Limanon left the real estate business and opened Bar Basic, he went in with the intention of making it a spot he and his friends would frequent. It had to be sleek but chill at the same time. Bar Basic features a street-inspired art collection along the wall and an old school Nintendo right at the bar, tempting you to show the regulars how you level up. During the week, the SOMA neighbors come to sit around the white bar and watch sports with Mike while he pops open a Bud Light or shakes up a martini with equal hospitality and cheer.

  • 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.'"
