Funky, fresh Lower Haight boutique P-Kok will close shop at the end of May. Haighteration has the scoop: "Owner Pat Pkok tells Haighteration that she has decided to consolidate the store with the P-Kok Eden location across the street at 776 Haight. A third shop, P-Kok Planet (which opened just last year at 1445 Haight), will remain open." Further, everything in the closing store is on sale for 50% off. Hop to it.
But have no fear, Kok fans. As Grandma Keeling used to say, when God closes one Kok, he unfurls another. Former SoMa leather bar Chaps II changed names
and owners on April 1st to Kok. What is Kok? Well, according to the bar's smoky voicemail greeting, Kok is a "men's cruise bar" made for "twinks, punks, bears, leather daddies of all ages, all races." They also now boast a new look, pool table, pinball machine. Splendid.
You can find Kok at 1225 Folsom, between 8th & 9th Streets.
