A new bar will be opening in early 2014 called DIRTY WATER BAR. Eater announced Kristian Cosentino (previously a GM at Press Club) is behind the bar, which is going to be quite the project. The 8,600-foot-space will include a 150-foot bar (yeah, you read that right) and three lounge areas, plus communal tables and tables for six. The bar program will include hard-to-find, very top-shelf spirits, a choice selection of beer (there will be 51 short-draw taps), wine (with 100 by the glass—he’ll be using Coravin for two- and five-ounce pours of high-end wines), a limited menu of cocktails, and there will be food as well. The buildout is still not under way, so stand by for updates in the New Year. 1446 Market St. between Van Ness and 11th St.
Over by Trick Dog, there’s a new bar that should be coming in the future, but there are some change-of-use permit hurdles to cross first (the space is currently used for tool storage). It will be called THE TRADESMAN, and Scoop mentioned Zarin Gollogly and Spencer Lafrenz (Harrison Woodworking + Design) are behind the project—they have done woodwork for Hog & Rocks and Hi Lo BBQ. The 1,400-square-foot space will be casual, with TVs, and there will be bar snacks (courtesy of Scott Youkilis). Stand by for more on this one. 753 Alabama St. at 19th St.
