Our Unique RUSSIA HOUSE Restaurant/Bar is Now Closed? Oh Well – Here’s What You Missed Out On

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013

Well, the curtains are gone so this icon is now a see through building, news to me.

Otherwise, the place looks the same:

Read on, for the memories – from a half-decade ago:

“No, not that Russia House, written by John le Carré and starring Sean Connery and Michelle Pfeiffer. And not that one either.

It’s this one, the restaurant at 2011 Bayshore Blvd. in freeway-close Visi Valley. Would you be brave enough to check it out after reading what the Yelpers have to say and seeing that even our municipal government won’t venture foot in there?

Comes now bold Michael Procopio who brought a brace of his “girls” down there to check things out for Bay Area Bites.

Read all about it.

Neon, fur, and vodka – who could ask for anything more?

It seems like Russia House is great place to go, if only to watch a party from another culture. (In Russia, Party watch you!)

Check it out, if you want.”

Can you see the superfluity of nuns in white approaching the Fair? Also note the F430 Ferrari supercar (sans license plates), one of many exoticars that made the journey to the Upper Haight today. Also note the sign: “No Open Containers of Alcohol.” Too bad.

Of course, all you need to get around the alcohol ban is a gallon jug of overproofed white rum and a giveaway “water” bottle. As seen on Ashbury.

“SHOW US YOUR BOOBS… please.” “FABULOUS PRIZES.” “DON’T WORRY (WE’RE GAY)” These inebriates residing above the Ben & Jerry’s at the corner of Ashbury were true to their word, tossing down trinkets to all flashers male and female.

You kmow why this San Francisco Native baby is better than you? Cause he had the foresight to be born in San Francisco, that’s why. He won the lottery/ when he was born.
