High Tide Cocktails in the Tenderloin Has Closed

I was in the Tenderloin last night getting a bite to eat when I saw something awful: High Tide Cocktails was closed. It was a Saturday night, so I couldn’t understand why they’d be shuttered on what was most likely their busiest night of the week. I then check Yelp

Edinburgh Castle Is in Trouble Because Techies Don’t Drink Enough

It looks like the famed Edinburgh Castle Pub could become the next culture casualty in San Francisco’s unrelenting development game. The dive bar, which has been around since 1959, recently showed up on real estate listings for a cool $3,995,000 (Does the $5k discount make it feel any less like

Divisadero’s Mojo Bicycle Cafe is Closing

When Mojo Bicycle Cafe first opened, Divisadero was a rapidly changing street. The Western Addition had been seeing an influx of young white people for a number of years by that point and to reflect this, realtors started calling the neighborhood NoPa. When I lived in the neighborhood back in

It’s Official Lucky 13 to Become 27 Condos

In 2015 we reported that there were plans to replace legendary San Francisco dive bar Lucky 13 with condos. At the time it was more of an open ended concept; sometime in the future condos would be put there. Unfortunately that date is now here. Yesterday SocketSite reported that a
