Camper at Alcademics.com brings word of a new bar opening in Union Square, the ~BURRITT ROOM~. According to his piece, it’s opening on the second floor of the new Crescent Hotel, just by the Stockton Tunnel at 417 Stockton St. (Burritt is the alley where pranksters are always adding an “o” to the street sign). You can take a look at pics of the space’s progress here.
Here’s more from Alcademics on what you’ll be drinking: “The cocktail program is in the care of beverage director (and bartender) Kevin Diedrich who worked at Bourbon & Branch and Clock Bar but in the last 16 months has been working in bars in DC and New York including PDT and the Clover Club. Diedrich says his goal is to keep the bar program in line with the hotel’s pricing and clientele; an accessible program at reasonable prices and with cocktails between $8-$10. The menu will have 18 cocktails that will be a combination of classic, contemporary, and seasonal drinks. He’ll try to hit at least one with each base spirit—pisco, rum, gin, etc.—plus one made with each of beer, wine, and Champagne. Speaking of beer, just three will be on tap, probably all local, and one seasonal. The Burritt Room will also have a canned beer program.” It’s scheduled to open on Thursday May 27th. (No number yet, but the hotel is 415-400-0500.)
