As reported in tablehopper in December, Fifth Floor in the Palomar Hotel has closed for a remodel and rebranding. The announcement has been made, and the new name is, er, ~DIRTY HABIT~, perhaps with the intent of getting the Health Department’s attention right away? Or to make people think you’re meeting up at a strip club? Anyway, the new space is supposed to be “a mysterious and sultry space” with an edgy, urban vibe. Well then. The focus has shifted decisively to the bar area, where cocktails from bar manager Brian Means will be poured, with a full menu by chef David Bazirgan. There will also be a heated patio (featuring a fireplace, fancy!), where the full menu will be available. The opening is currently set for May. 12 4th St. at Market, 415-348-1555.
