The most award-winning bar in San Francisco teases burger-centric Mission Rock offshoot

Quik Dog, the Covid-borne side project from serial award-winning San Francisco cocktail bar Trick Dog, teased a forthcoming second location in Mission Rock.

In an Instagram post Wednesday, Quik Dog put out a brief announcement showing a rendering of its potential new home, but with few details beyond a hot dog and soda emoji.

“Hey Kids, BIG NEWS! We’re super excited to announce our new flagship spot in San Francisco’s latest hood, Mission Rock,” it said.

A burgers-and-dogs takeout restaurant concept that grew out of Trick Dog’s home on 20th Street in the Mission District in September 2020, Quik Dog was a side project from when the bar remained shuttered due to Covid restrictions on indoor spaces. 

This current project would appear to be a standalone Quik Dog, and although the post didn’t specify whether alcohol would be served, a representative later confirmed to The Standard that there will be a full bar. According to Eater SF, which first reported the news, the location will be the Canyon, a venue with numerous forthcoming local food and beverage options.

That location is also directly between Oracle Park and Chase Center, the respective homes of the San Francisco Giants and Golden State Warriors.

The Standard has reached out to Trick Dog for more details but did not hear back by publication time.

Famous for dumping its elaborate cocktail menus every six months and introducing entire new ones, Trick Dog has won numerous Best Cocktail Menu awards throughout its decadelong run. The 19th and current menu is “Tantrick Dog,” showing canines in various yoga poses, each with a drink based on an herbal ingredient meant to evoke wellness. Previous menus were grouped around themes like astrology, poetry or the Pantone color system.

Update: This post has been updated with comment from the San Francisco Giants.
