There’s a new taker for the Noe’s Bar space in Noe Valley: Ivor Bradley, who is also a partner at The Creamery in SoMa.

The plan is to keep the bar friendly to sports fans and local residents, with a menu that includes burgers, pizza, and salads, plus a happy hour menu. 1199 Church St. at 24th St.
I have been trying to get information for a couple of months on ~ARCHIVE BAR & KITCHEN~, but after awhile you just gotta give up on people who don’t respond to emails, texts, and calls.
