We recently reported that the owners of the Golden Bear had taken over the space formerly occupied by Hangar 17 on 17th and S streets. Now, there's a name: Hook & Ladder Manufacturing Co., which is slated to open in February. The name harkens to a historic volunteer fire department in Sacramento, with a decor that mixes an industrial vibe with a comfy neighborhood bar and restaurant.
"It's about the sense of rising from the ashes, and a feeling of community," said co-owner Kimio Bazett. "Like the Golden Bear, it's also kind of a tribute to northern California."
Renovations are continuing on the space, and we're hearing that a couple of key names in the local restaurant scene will be heading the food and bar program. We'll keep you posted on that when confirmed.
