GrubStreet got the scoop on Kink’s Armory Club, slated to open in late September:
The new bar will have a serious cocktail focus, with a weekly changing cocktail menu, farmers’ market ingredients, and even a Champagne cart on weekends.

Four Barrel is opening a new location with the same name in Portola, according to SF Gate’s Inside Scoop:
It’ll be in the Portola neighborhood — between Bernal Heights and Bayview — on San Bruno Avenue at Burrows Street, right behind Subway.
Portola was the first to reach out, and its Four Barrel will open by the end of the year. Tooker is estimating November.
The 800 square foot location will be set up like a kiosk, similar to the original Blue Bottle outpost in Hayes Valley.
