We’re getting reports from Hoodline and Eater that Divisadero’s ~ZIRYAB~ is closing. A new bar is moving in from Justin Lew (who has been in the neighborhood for 11 years) and Ian Scalzo, who previously worked with Future Bars (the group responsible for Bourbon & Branch, Rickhouse, and many more). It’s going to be called ~HORSEFEATHER~ and will be a neighborhood bar with a comfortable, welcoming feel. They’re still working out the details (like late-night dining), and their liquor license is still pending. In the meantime, Salim and Sameer Nasser are keeping Ziryab open. 528 Divisadero St. at Fell, 415-522-0800.
