When Empty Lots & German Beer Meet

People have been asking me why this vacant lot on the corner of the Isotope’s block suddenly has a public notice to serve alcoholic beverages up. In the past this lot (across the street from beautiful Hayes Green park) has served as temporary home to Christmas tree sales and temporary art installations… but what does this innocent looking empty lot need a notice to sell liquor for? A very good question!

It will soon be the home for a beer garden run by our friends at SF’s best german restaurant, Suppenküche! Designed by local developer Envelope A+D this and another nearby lot across from our lovely local park will be transformed into Proxy, a great destination for relaxing outdoor eats and drinks.

I foresee many great nights of Germanic brews in our futures, friends!

Between this and the soon to be opened Fatted Calf next door to us, the Isotope’s block just got a heck of a lot more interesting. I’m told in at least one of these cases, nearby proximity to the Isotope and our clientel was considered a real advantage to the business owners. It’s nice to be loved, isn’t it?
