Here’s some good news: excellent dive bar RITE SPOT CAFE closed down last year after some health code troubles, but it looks like the owners (some are the same stakeholders, some are new) have picked it up and are bringing it back, with food, live music, and drinks.
I talked to Annie Southworth, the new general manager, and she said they will be opening at 5pm tonight (Tuesday September 18th), with a happy hour from 5pm-7pm. As of 6pm, you’ll be able get dinner along with your drinks, from a menu of comfortable pub classics. Then, at 9pm, there will be a band playing live music. She said they will be doing a lot of the same things as the old Rite Spot, but she said aims to “run a tighter ship” than previously, so hopefully this time they’ll be able to stay open without any health code troubles! The kitchen will be open Mon-Fri 6pm-11pm and Saturday 7pm-11pm, and the bar itself will be open seven days a week, though they are still working out the exact hours. 2099 Folsom at 17th St., 415-552-6066.
