Back in December, I let you know that ~LASZLO~ was getting an update after 15 years, moving away from its industrial and dark look. You ready to see this gorgeous new bar? It reopens on Thursday May 12th.

Foreign Cinema’s Gayle Pirie and John Clark used the same company that worked on Laszlo’s original build-out, Praxis Architects. The space has a much lighter and airy look, with new seating throughout, lighting, a new DJ platform, upgraded sound system, and seasonally driven cocktail menu by Foreign Cinema and Laszlo bar manager Nicky Beyries. Don’t forget the hidden-away tables on the mezzanine too!

You can still order food and brunch in the bar, plus there’s a new bar bites menu that includes FC’s superlative Madras fried chicken as a sandwich, whut? Open Mon-Wed 5pm-12am, Thu 5:30pm-2am, Fri 3pm-2am, Sat 11am-2am, Sun 11am-12am. 2526 Mission St. at 21st St., 415-401-0810.
