tablehopper media researcher Rebecca Kinney noticed some big changes in her neighborhood at the former Bacchus Kirk: it’s now PEACEKEEPER. The formerly dark bar is now filled with light from an overhead skylight (which opens!), and a tropical Mexican style—it’s full of plants. Here’s a peek at the cocktail menu. Eater reveals it’s from the team behind Harper & Rye (Nate Valentine, Jamal Blake-Williams, and business partner Rob Kashian), and designed by Britt Hull of Tide Design Co.—there’s also a pool table. Open Mon-Fri 3pm-2am and Sat 12pm-2am. 925 Bush St. at Taylor.
One Tenderloin door opens, and another closes: the divey HIGH TIDE COCKTAILS, known for its overflowing martini glass sign and $1 bills stapled everywhere, has closed, according to Broke-Ass Stuart. The city’s baseline cost for a cocktail just went up a couple bucks. 600 Geary St. at Jones.
Switching gears: SF now has another swanky rooftop bar, EVERDENE, which has opened on the 12 floor of the new Virgin Hotels San Francisco, an urban oasis (designed in partnership with Gensler San Francisco) with nearly 360-degree views of the city skyline. You’ll find craft cocktails (including large-format options for groups), bites from chef Adrian Garcia, a lively custom soundtrack (and live DJs), and a 25-foot wraparound bar. Open Tue-Sat 5pm-1:30am. 250 4th St. at Folsom.
Over in the Inner Richmond, there’s a new wine bar and shop called BRECK’S, serving wine on the weekend and Verve coffee service in the mornings (owner Will Eagle is ramping up hours and the offering in coming weeks). It has a stylish look, courtesy of ROY (previously Hannah Collins design), with indoor and outdoor seating. 2 Clement St. at Arguello. [Via Eater.]
