Dirty Water Moving to Twitter Building

As reported on tablehopper back in September, Kristian Cosentino, a former GM at Press Club, was getting ready to open his bar, ~DIRTY WATER~, at Market and Van Ness. (I imagine there will be some impending mix-ups: “Oh, whoops, I thought we were meeting at Dirty Habit!”) Well, anyway, Eater has word that he’s actually taken a 6,252-square-foot space (yeah, it’s a big ‘un) inside the Twitter building on Market instead. The 250-275 seat space will be designed by Arcsine. The concept generally remains unchanged: there will be a 50-foot bar, more than 100 wines by the glass, and high-end spirits, with cocktails by Ziryab bar manager Zachary Brian Taylor.

The kitchen will be run by chef Jared Gallagher, who previously worked at Chez TJ in Mountain View. His menu will have a wild-game focus, with meats cooked over a fire pit and served in large-format portions for sharing, giving the project a bit of a conquering Viking vibe. (Vikings, here is your whole chicken! Now feast!) If that’s not enough of a fancy boy’s playground for you, there will also be an outdoor patio lounge and beer garden. 1355 Market St. at 10th St.
