The space formerly occupied by Bia’s in the Upper Haight (1640 Haight), which closed in September, is close to getting a new tenant. Uppercasing reports that the space has been gutted and is now “pretty swank,” with a new iron and wood bar, fresh paint, and a new redwood deck out back. Rumors abound about who the new tenant may be, and whether this might be a craft beer bar, or a wine bar (or both?). We ourselves can’t locate a liquor license in process, but anything is possible. The landlord, for what it’s worth, says that the restaurant is aiming for a February opening. File under: Developing. [Uppercasing]
