New Owner at Place Pigalle; Churchill Opens


Churchill photo by Alex Martinez for Haighteration.

According to posts in UrbanDaddy and the Inside Scoop, ~PLACE PIGALLE~ in Hayes Valley has reopened with new owners (but don’t worry, the pool table and couches remain). The new owners are Michael O’Connor and Jason Perkins, who recently opened Brick & Mortar Music Hall in the former Coda space. New changes at Place Pigalle: it will be open at noon, and in addition to the large selection of boutique beers (with 15 taps), there are also wines on tap. There’s additionally the possibility that Charlie Hallowell of Pizzaiolo may be doing bites for Place Pigalle and/or Brick & Mortar down the road—or not at all. 520 Hayes St. at Octavia, 415-552-2671.

And over in the Castro, ~CHURCHILL~ opens this Wednesday in the former Bar on Church/Transfer space from the partners behind Bloodhound and Double Dutch.

Open Mon-Fri 4pm-2am, Sat-Sun 2pm-2am. 198 Church St. at 14th St.
