Over in Polk Gulch, the fomer Sudachi is now the ~RUSTED MULE~, a project from Kristian Cosentino (Dirty Water), Richard Vila (Poquito), Christina Mae Henderson, and Chris Mansury. It’s a huge space, with room for 140 people, and has three lounges plus a mezzanine for private groups. Hoodline reports it has a “soft steampunk” look, with original brick walls and pieces from local artists. The amber onyx bar is where you’ll find “fun and throwback drinks,” mules on tap (made with lime and ginger beer), and plenty of wine and beer. Chef Glen Schwartz (Dirty Water) is behind the pub-style menu, with fun snacks to start (carrot corn dogs, why not?) and will be ramping up in the next couple of weeks. 5pm-2am daily. 1217 Sutter St. at Polk.
