The first thing to notice about Thieves is that the whiskey selection is no joke, from the Irish to the bourbon to the single malt scotch. There are even wooden cubbies to house the whiskey varieties, lit dramatically by halogen. The ambiance in the rest of the full-service bar is just as flattering, with a dim, warm wash over the booths that run parallel to the bar and a greenish glow from the digital jukebox cast over the two pool tables. This bar gets crowded on the weekends, but keeps a lively-yet-mellow pace during the weekdays. At each booth is an elegantly carved table of lacquered planks of dark wood knots. Above the booths hang artwork by local artists, and above the bar are two flat-screen TVs showing sports. And taking the place of a corner round table and in lieu of a vintage photo booth is a digital booth for those seeking instant gratification.

  • 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.'"
