Another Dive Bar at Risk, Hotspot

It looks like yet another San Francisco dive bar is in danger of closing. This time, Mid-Market’s ~HOTSPOT~ is on the chopping block. Uptown Almanac reports they’ve gotten into a dispute with their landlord after closing for renovations in January, and it’s not clear if they’ll be able to reopen. Their Facebook page cites ongoing legal action, and mentions that the bar is not currently functional. While it’s not clear that the bar has closed permanently, things are not looking good. Sigh. 1414 Market St. at Fell.
