After a nightclub shooting shuttered 330 Ritch for good back in March, a silver lining emerged: the co-owner of neighboring Little Skillet, Deanna Sison Foster, decided to take over the space with bartender partner Mia Weening (Mission Bowling Club, Mini Bar). Now, Tablehopper has secured some more details on the forthcoming project, which will be called Victory Hall & Parlor. According to Foster, who's also a partner in Farmerbrown, the plan is to keep it as a bar first, with craft cocktails and some large-format drinks for groups. All the ingredients, from juices to shrubs, will be prepared by a dedicated bar cook, and the menu will rotate seasonally, with an emphasis on approachable drinks.
Those hoping to get an evening fried-chicken fix will also have cause to celebrate: as it did in its early days with 330 Ritch, Little Skillet will operate a takeout window inside the bar, which will serve food until midnight. In addition to the famed chicken and waffles, they'll offer rotisserie chicken with sides and other hearty fare. Brunch will be served on the weekends, and a back parlor will be available for private parties and events. All in all, a solid, casual option that will likely delight SOMA tech crowds looking for an after-work drinking spot. They're hoping to open in the late fall.
