Black Cat + Blue BarSan Francisco, CA

This alluring venue, located at the epicenter of North Beach, became an instant landmark when it opened in 1998.  The goal was to create something classic for Broadway, a place that represented the history of dining in San Francisco.  A turn-of-the-century brick building was renovated to create the ground-floor restaurant and basement-level jazz club, which are infused with references, old and new.

Black Cat has the look and feel of a French brasserie, with red leather booths, a shellfish bar, towering wall mirrors and a large bar.  The bustling crowd and views of the action on Broadway, invigorate the 110-seat dining room.

The Blue Bar is entirely a different place—a deluxe, downstairs lounge with a mid-century modernist design.  A composition of rich colors, luxurious materials and classic furnishings provide comfort and intimacy.  The 1,000 square foot space is like a nighttime living room.
