I checked in with Kevin Cline of the Front Porch on his latest project with Josey White, ~THE ROCK BAR~, and sure enough, they are going to meet their intended opening date of Saturday February 11th that he told me about a month ago (well, if health inspections go well—in fact, they might even open sooner). The project was already mentioned on tablehopper, but to recap, as Cline puts it, “It’s going to be a fun neighborhood bar for people who like great classic cocktails, cool wines, cold beers, and geology!” Not only does the exterior have a lot of rocks adhered to it (a holdover from its days as the International Club), but both Cline’s and White’s families come from mining backgrounds, so they’re having some fun with that theme with the interior as well.
Cocktails include classics like the Sazerac, Vieux Carré, and Corpse Reviver #2, plus drinks like the Dirty Metamorphic (Tito’s, olive, Fresno chile), Real Thunderberg (Maker’s, Bunderberg, Underberg, lime), and the clever Inheritance International (“pick your spirit from our inheritance; we will make you something nice”). Follow The Rock Bar on Facebook for up-to-the-day updates on the opening. Open Mon-Wed 5pm-1am, Thu-Sat 5pm-2a, and Sun 11am-1am. 80 29th St. at Tiffany, 415-550-6664.
