A little Tenderloin bar activity for you: the Bang San Thai location at 505 Jones Street has closed (FYI, their other location at 791 O’Farrell Street remains open), and I learned that their neighbor, ~BOURBON & BRANCH~, may be expanding into the space. Please note this is all very TBD—they have just started talks with their landlord about the expansion.
Brian Sheehy and Doug Dalton, operating as Destination Bars LLC, are also in escrow right now for the divey ~CLUB 441~. The space is just half a block down the street from Bourbon & Branch, at 441 Jones. Again, this is a very TBD project. Since the liquor license transfer is a very slooooow process, especially these days, there are no immediate plans for the space—but I will (of course) keep you posted on future developments.
