Coming to Hayes Valley: Fig + Thistle

After some liquor license activity kicked in for ~FIG + THISTLE~ in Hayes Valley, Eater followed up with some details on the project. Angel Davis (previously a hostess at The Alembic) and Nguey Lay are opening a smallish bar (500 square feet) that will be focused on beer (mostly bottled because there isn’t enough room for kegs) and wine. There will also be some locally made charcuterie and cheeses. Look for 30 seats, with a six-seat bar; the décor will be “rustic, sweet, and relaxing,” with lots of wild flowers and plants (and light). November is the current target—the change-of-use permit may take a little while since it was formerly a doctor’s office. 313 Ivy St. at Gough.
