Hook & Ladder Manufacturing Co. coming to former Hangar 17

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.

On October 14, The Sacramento Bee will temporarily remove commenting from While we design the upgrade, we encourage you to tell us what you like and don't like about commenting on and other websites. We've heard from hundreds of you already and we're listening. Please continue to add your thoughts and questions here. We also encourage you to write Letters to the Editor on this and other topics.
