This is a story about a girl named Lola.


Who was a showgirl.



Who inspired a bar.



The one they’re calling Wildhawk. It’s opening any night now in the Mission, and here are some pictures of
it
.



This is the latest establishment from the team who brought you Forgery. This time, though, they’re digging
into history in addition to mixing up uniformly excellent cocktails for your drinking-those pleasure.



You see, it’s named for the infamous Lola Montez, a dancer and notorious bad girl back in the 1800s. In
fact, she had a reputation for being a “wild hawk.” Ah, it’s all coming together now.



And it’s definitely the kind of place Ms. Montez would’ve enjoyed. Black wallpaper patterned with
flowers. Corner couches and Eames-like chairs hugging the wall in the corner. You’ll probably be there
most evenings when you’re not perched on one of the zebra-patterned bar stools, sipping cognac-and-rye
cocktails or tasting one of 10 vermouths.



You’ll realize that many hours have passed. You’ll order some pintxos and crudo to share, courtesy of a
former chef from Goose & Gander up in St. Helena. You’ll note how this is both an excellent spot for both
a pre-dinner drink and a post-dinner nightcap.



And pretty much most of the other times.
