Transformations: Tonic Team to Revamp Bar Johnny

New, 5 comments

Russian Hill: Back in fall 2007, Tablespoon converted into Bar Johnny, and now after varying degrees of success on Polk Street (i.e, no Chron review), another transformation is going to take place. The guys from Tonic are in the process of buying the space, and once escrow clears after the usual several months, Bar Johnny will become a new bar/restaurant. A few names are still being considered, and even though food will still be served (kitchen will be open until 1am, seven days a week), there will be an evolution towards a more bar-centric vibe. Select quote from Team Tonic: "lots of alcohol, lots of food." They're not expecting an extended closure; if all goes to plan, as soon as the deal closes, Bar Johnny will transform overnight into the new joint.
