A few new bars on our booze scene: Grub Street notes that the International Club in Bernal Heights is being taken over by Kevin Cline and Josephine White of the nearby Front Porch, and they will be naming it ~ROCK BAR~. Details forthcoming. 80 29th St. at Tiffany.
More liquor license discoveries from Grub Street: the now-closed Ace Cafe is becoming ~THE ARMORY CLUB~ in the early fall. Building owner Peter Acworth (the man behind Kink.com) owns the Armory—which is kitty corner to the bar—hence the name. Sounds like there will be a food component as well. I imagine there will be lots of sausage. Heh. 1799 Mission St. at 14th St.
And over in the Mission, ~DR. TEETH AND THE ELECTRIC MAYHEM~ is now open in the former Baobab space. While the outdoor patio won’t be opening until September, UrbanDaddy reports there are Fernet and Jameson on tap (eeeaaasy, tiger), an “express shot-and-beer bar in back,” dollar sliders, and, whoa Nelly: “the Ghost Pepper Burger—so hot you actually have to sign a waiver.” Don’t touch your eyes. 2323 Mission St. at 19th St., 415-285-2380.
