SoMa denizens, take note: not one, but two new bars have softly opened up on Folsom (at Langton). The sister businesses celebrated their soft opening May 30th; they replace El Capitan and Carafe, which shuttered last summer.
Trademark is the more casual of the two new spots at 1123 Folsom St., conceived as a sports bar and featuring TVs, basketball toss and other games. Next-door at Copyright, you'll find a more elevated craft cocktail bar.
Both spaces will offer alcohol-infused treats from Frozen Kuhsterd, the popular local purveyor of "West Coast-style" frozen custard. Look for creative flavors like Banana Rum Custard, Mexican Chocolate Mezcal, and Guinness Milk Jelly (topped with Jameson-soaked boba).
Menu details are slim, but food will also be on offer, including snacks like "Street Corn" (sweet yellow corn, Japanese mayo, parmesan cheese, tajin); oyster shooters with quail egg, yuzu kosho oil and ponzu; and sisig deviled eggs with fried pork cheek. The food comes from Ronnie Taylor and Tim Luyma, the pair behind Alchemy SF, a pop-up test kitchen featuring Filipino flavors.
Trademark and Copyright's soft opening phase will last until June 12th, when the businesses will celebrate an official grand opening. For now, they're open 4:30pm-midnight Tuesday-Thursday, 4:30pm-2am Friday and Saturday, and 4:30pm-midnight on Sunday (closed Mondays).
