While we all mourned the loss of Amber, the delightfully lung-cancerous bar on 14th Street and Church, its replacement opens up on Saturday night. Just two weeks after closing, The Residence, we're told, will boast "luscious jewel-toned drapes and fabrics that compliment rich wood paneling" as well as "artisan cocktails" and "casual intimacy."
Will people flock to the new spot? If the long lines coming out of nearby Blackbird are any indication: yes. The place is ground zero for happy drunks and cocktail fiends.
And with only two weeks for a complete makeover (those bathrooms!), we're eager to see what and how they managed to pull it all off. Check it out this Saturday.
The Residence is located at 718 14th Street, San Francisco.
