Kink's New Bar, The Armory Club, Opens Tomorrow

New, 5 comments

Kink.com/SF Armory owner and bondage entusiast Peter Acworth will be unveiling The Armory Club cocktail lounge tomorrow, just across the street from the Armory in the former Ace Cafe. The glamourous room encapsulates Acworth's clear and forward-thinking vision with tin ceilings, Victorian era damask wallpaper, luxe leather seating, cast iron fireplaces, vintage light fixtures and under-lit amber onyx bars. It has the same intricate, moneyed feel of The Wilson or Bourbon & Branch with an undercurrent of kink in the form of erotic art peppered about—not to mention the bar is already the afterwork hang for Kink.com staff.

Bar manager Kristopher Ramirez plans to expand upon his farmer's market-fresh bar offerings as his staff gets broken in, with bottled cocktails and weekend champagne carts on the way soon. Tours of the historic SF Armory will now launch from the private barroom shown in the gallery above. And in case you were wondering plans to roll out a community center and farmers market at the SF Armory are still moving forward, and Acworth is leasing out the third floor of the building as well. Take a look around the space above. The cocktail list that soft-launched over the weekend, and the full opening list of beer and wine follow. Starting tomorrow, hours are 5 p.m. to 2 a.m., nightly.
