NOW BOOKING: A TECHNO-UTOPIAN BAR IN SAN FRANCISCO
FOR THOSE WHO LIKE TO THINK WHILE THEY DRINK
Since merriment sometimes just isn't enough, the Interval, a Mensa-courting bar that opens this month in the Fort Mason Center, also offers a library stacked with a thousand literary masterworks and reference books, an ambient soundtrack created by Brian Eno and, later this year, two robots: One will make drinks, while the other will write predictions about the future on the space's massive chalkboard. Conceived by the San Francisco-based collective the Long Now Foundation - whose board of directors includes Eno and the Whole Earth Catalog creator Stewart Brand - the Interval will also host regular salons for cerebral scenesters.
The Interval opens June 15 at 2 Marina Boulevard, Building A, Fort Mason Center, San Francisco
