I ran into my good buddy Dylan MacNiven yesterday at the Do the Bay Pop-Up Record Shop. You may know him as one of the brothers who own Woodhouse Fish Co. and West of Pecos.

Anyways, it appears that MacNiven has taken over the spot from the Bon Vivants and Ne Timeas Restaurant Group and will be turning it back into a music venue, just as it was for like 100 years before the current incarnation. Yay!

As of now I have no news of who will be doing the booking or what the venue will be like, but work has already started and one of the new interior walls has come down.

This is great news for anyone who has mourned the loss of live music venues in the SF over the past few years. Cafe Du Nord will stay open during the construction.

Also, for those of you who bought the SF Beer Passport Du Nord will still be honoring the coupons. And if you haven’t gotten one, get your ASAP! We have less than 100 left before it’s sold out. Get yours here.
