Been down Mission Street in Soma lately? Like any other street in that area it is transforming before our eyes with sleek new buildings. Across from one of the newest is an older building that has been transformed into a work of art on the outside. Inside a different type of art is being created daily.
Earlier this year Oddjob asked Visionary and famed Burning Man artist Shrine On of Los Angeles to paint the facade with a mural that reflects the beauty of the libations being crafted inside.
From the creators of Big (Jordan Langer), Public Works (Jeff Whitmore), and Jones (Peter Glikshtern) comes Oddjob. A craft cocktail bar in the blossoming SOMA district where you’re offered an extensive drink menu as well as live music, local DJs, and stand up comedy on a monthly basis. They are located at 1337 Mission Street in the dark blue building.
When you walk down Washburn Street to their main entrance, you will see a whiskey barrel in front of their large wooden doors. Walking in, you are presented with two opportunities. Veer right and you have Oddjob; Happy hour Monday through Friday, seasonal cocktail and drink menu, lounge area and Photo Booth with as many photo opportunities as drink possiblities.
Decide to go to the left and you’ll partake in SRO; no menu, adventurous ingredients, limited seating and only one bartender. SRO is a drinking experience. Here you order by telling the bartender what you like and don’t like, how your day is going, how you feel and even what your spirit animal is. After a brief and fun discussion, you should be presented with a handcrafted cocktail that has been created specifically and only for you.
The Midway is also a creation of the owners of Oddjob. The Midway will be a one of a kind space, dedicated to bringing art, entertainment, and education under one synergistic & collaborative roof.
