On its way next summer to the waterfront space most recently home to Kelly’s Mission Rock will be Mission Rock Brewery and Oyster Bar, from neighborhood restaurateur Peter Osborne (Pete’s Tavern, Momo’s, Pedro’s Cantina). As the Scoop is reporting, the onetime dive bar known simply as Mission Rock will become something a little more gentrified as the Mission Bay environs fill up with new workers and residents, obviously with a raw bar and a food menu to be determined later. The current plan is for a summer opening, which is subject to change. In the meanwhile, Osborne is going to be giving the soon-to-open Lucky Strike Lanes a run for their money over on King Street.
In the basement underneath Pete’s and Pedro’s at 128 King Street, he’s building a “gaming center,” including six bowling lanes, a mechanical bull (!), and pool tables. The space is currently home to a private room, and the move definitely seems calculated to hold on to customers who might be lured away by the opening of Lucky Strike Lanes, which last we heard was slated for spring in the former Borders space at Third and King.
Osborne’s new basement bowling alley is also slated for spring, just in time for baseball season.
