Eric Rubin (Hog & Rocks, Tres Agaves) and Karl Hasz (Cyrus, Farina, Tres Agaves) have teamed up with America’s Cup and will officially open the America’s Cup Sports Bar as Co-Chairmen. Opening today July 4th, the world’s largest pop-up bar at the world’s greatest sailing event will feature both outdoor and indoor service and encompass over 12,000 square feet on Pier 27 (which will later become the Cruise Ship Terminal). The space sits beside 13 private SuperYacht slips at the America’s Cup Basin. America’s Cup Sports Bar will have private lounge areas and also large private event spaces. The space will hold approximately 500 people and will be San Francisco’s new, “go-to” after work spot.

The bar and restaurant will tentatively be open 7 days a week from 11 am – 10 pm Sunday- Thursday and 11 am – 11pm Friday and Saturday, and brunch will be served on the weekends.

Famed local cocktail designer Scott Beattie has been named Beverage Director and will create and oversee the innovative cocktail program. Menu items and dishes will feature local, artisan purveyors. America’s Cup races will take place from July 4th – September 21st and will be continuously broadcast.
