After a successful run at Big, which closed in June, barmen Brian Felley and Mo Hodges have taken up a Monday night residency at Muka, an upcoming tapas restaurant located between Hayes Valley and Civic Center. They're serving rum-focused cocktails alongside tacos from Tango & Stache.

After his first week at Rich Table in Hayes Valley, Jason "Buffalo" LoGrasso already looks at home behind the window-flanked bar. In addition to seven new market cocktails, LoGrasso has just unveiled four winter-ready dessert drinks.
"This place is about cooking food we'd want to eat, about making an environment we'd want to hang out in," says Evan Rich. A large portion of the menu features bar-friendly bites and snacks, like sardine chips. They're also making their own cultured butter for the fresh-baked bread.
