Julie’s Supper Club – R.I.P.

http://sf.metblogs.com/archives/images/2006/02/julies-thumb.jpgAncient news for sure, but thought I’d post an ‘official’ obit. (And also as an FYI to those former SF residents out there who may recall this place.) Julie’s closed several months ago, apparently to be replaced by a new venue called “The Toxic Lounge” (I’m just guessing, according to the liquor license poster). As a relic of the heady dot-bubble days, Julie’s enjoyed a fairly popular run. Slightly baffling actually. I only ever went here a handful of times. The food was decidely mediocre and the music tinny and always just a touch too loud. Who knows when the new venue is set to open. Despite the posting months ago, it doesn’t seem there has been even token new construction done inside.

    Good riddance! Another dumb SF restaurant hits the scap heap. Unfortunately, your summation — “The food was decidely mediocre and the music tinny and always just a touch too loud” — could describe many other dumb SF restaurants still in existence. But I would add “service” in with “food” for decided mediocrity. I think there’s something about the casual style SF has cultivated over the years that has somehow legitimized poor service.

    Hey, what is Julie Ring doing now?

    I remember the place on Polk Street, but that can’t be there anymore…
