After the shutter of Heights Tavern last month, the space is being transitioned by new proprietors who hope to have their eatery back up and running by the Adams Avenue Street Fair at the end of the month, if not sooner.
The experienced team of partners, who are also behind the East Village's Bootlegger, The Local in PB and downtown and Ocean Beach's Wonderland, are redoing the Normal Heights bar and re-dubbing it The Rabbit Hole, which they hope will resonate with the local community and become the neighborhood's new favorite watering hole.
Partly named for the rabbits that reportedly roamed the area when it was still undeveloped, The Rabbit Hole's new interior includes a custom-painted mural by artist Sean Dietrich and a freshly-built stage that'll host live entertainment nightly, from acoustic performances to comedy sets.
Co-owner Brendan Huffman says the menu will be comfort food-focused and include mac and cheese and "the best sloppy joe you've ever had", available for lunch, dinner and brunch.
Drinks will revolve around 24 taps of local beer, plus wine; though they'll leave craft cocktails to the experts at Sycamore Den next door, there will be quick-service cocktails available, some based on the cold brew coffee that'll be on tap courtesy of Adams Avenue neighbors Broke Girls' Coffee Bar.
