This fine new specimen you see here is Jamber Wine Pub (858 Folsom), a new project from Jess Voss and her brother Matt that softly opened last night and has set a grand opening of September 28. The cozy neighborhood feel that the Voss family is going for reflects in a wood and metal-dominant interior, with vibrant splashes of color coming from two graffiti-inspired paintings proclaiming the tag of a "Proud Jamaican." Two levels and an enclosed outdoor patio can comfortably fit about 50 patrons.
Recall that there's a decent-sized menu featuring snacks such as fried mozzarella and soft pretzels, sandwiches, and larger plates like fish and chips and meatloaf, all to be washed down with glasses of wine or jugs of local brews on tap — all local.
