There's some movement finally on the vacant space at 584 Valencia Street that once housed the original Slanted Door location, and in recent years was home to Wo Hing General Store and, briefly, Urchin Bistrot, which shuttered almost exactly two years ago. As Tablehopper reports via a liquor license application, the prime location is being snapped up by the Bon Vivants, a.k.a. BVHospitality, which is the consulting and design outfit run by Trick Dog’s Josh Harris and Morgan Schick that's currently working on the Proper Hotel project.
The DBA (doing business as) name is Bon Voyage!, but that could very well be a placeholder.
The move would bring craft cocktails further into the fold of the Inner Mission, where places like ABV, Mosto, and the Hideout at Dalva have been upping the ante in recent years, but where there haven't been many dedicated upscale cocktail dens like Trick Dog besides Wildhawk, which opened last year.
And whatever it is called, this will be a bar with food, as it's a Type 47 license and the place is outfitted with a pretty newly remodeled kitchen.
Stay tuned for more details as we get them.
