Hook & Ladder to open in late September at 17th and S streets

Details are shaping up for the opening of Hook & Ladder Manufacturing Co., a neighborhood eatery and bar located at 17th and S streets in the former Hangar 17 space. Look for Hook & Ladder to open in the next two to three weeks - that is, by the end of September.

Owned by the same folks behind midtown's Golden Bear, a popular pub that's been featured on the Food Network's "Diners, Drive Ins and Dives," Hook & Ladder will feature an expanded menu and cocktail program run by Chris Tucker, one of Sacramento's top bartenders. The menu will be overseen by Brian Mizner, the Golden Bear's current executive chef and an alum of L Wine Lounge and the late-great Masque in El Dorado Hills. The menu's still being fine tuned, but expect a more entree options than featured at Golden Bear along with a range of small plates.

The 4,800 square foot space includes an additional front and back patio, along with some unique concepts which will be revealed soon. While Golden Bear also features DJs and dancing, Hook & Ladder will focus squarely on food and drink for now.

"We're trying to set some new standards in quality and service, and also embrace the neighborhood and community," said Kimio Bazett, co-owner of Hook & Ladder. "We're also trying to be as accessible as possible and taking it up a notch food-wise."
