An Update on Beaux (Coming to the Castro)

As noted on tablehopper in March, the Castro is getting a new bar soon: ~BEAUX~. The project comes from Tim Eicher, Rob Giljum, and Rob Cotterman, the owners of The Edge and Midnight Sun. The name refers to boyfriends or dandies, and one of the bar’s taglines is that you can “make Beaux your boyfriend” in the neighborhood.

We’ve got a couple of updates on the project. First, the former Trigger interior has been wiped away by Geremia Design, and is now divided into multiple sections to accommodate cocktailing, dancing, and conversation (and maybe some naughtiness—although nothing will compare to the shenanigans when the place was the Detour!). Take a look at a floor plan here. They’ve brought Scotty Kennedy of Tacolicious on board to get the drink list up and running, so look for cocktails that have a little more thought put into them than the average club drink. Right now, the plan is to open in September, although that is pending construction completion. 2344 Market St. at Noe, 415-863-4027.
