The latest ~BLUE BOTTLE COFFEE~ to open is in the Financial District on California Street. The café was designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, and the press release shares: “inspired by American artist James Turrell, the cafe is wrapped in wood planks on all sides with the exception of the back wall, which is covered in a hazy mirror creating an infinity mirror effect.” Hours are Mon-Fri 6:30am-5:30pm and Sat-Sun 8:30am-3pm. 600 California St. at Kearny.

And great news for the kinky crowd: after reporting last week on the demise of SoMa’s ~WICKED GROUNDS~, the kink/fetish/BDSM café, boutique, and community space, they ended up getting some financial help for their Patreon campaign from their community and are going to remain open a bit longer. No need for your safe word yet! 289 8th St. at Clementina. [Via Hoodline.]
