Lola Montez, who some referred to as a “Wild Hawk,” was an exotic dancer and mistress to an aging king before she landed in San Francisco during the Gold Rush in the mid-1800’s. She was said to be both glamorous and boldly unconventional. We channeled Lola throughout our design for the new Wild Hawk bar for the PlumpJack Group in the Mission. We thought “What Would Lola Want?” today? A dark, sexy modern day pub – fitting to meet some of her gentleman (or lady) callers, a spot for the best cocktails in town, a place to come and hold court for the evening. I think she would be proud!
