Cozy new wine bar Fig & Thistle from former Alembic hostess Angel Davis and partner Nguey Lay made a quiet debut earlier this month. It occupies a 500-square-foot space that was formerly a therapist's office on Ivy Street, the alley that runs between Gough and Octavia. And as Davis tells us, the late-afternoon has been pretty quiet, but the place has been getting steadily more packed starting at 6 p.m. most nights.
The vibe at Fig & Thistle is very mellow and neighborhood-y, with denim curtains, custom-made stools, and seating for about 25.
They're now open daily at 3 p.m., closing at 11 p.m. on weeknights and midnight on Friday and Saturday. Check out some photos below, including today's by-the-glass menu of California single-varietal wines and craft beers.
