San Francisco: Patio to Re-Open in the Castro After a Decade

Patio Blueprints - Castro, San FranciscoA decade-long effort to remodel and reopen the Patio Cafe took one step closer to fruition tonight (Thursday, August 1) when the Planning Commission voted to grant the Castro eatery the necessary permits it needs to welcome back diners.

It could open its doors as early as mid-September.

The commissioners on a 6-1 vote approved a conditional use permit so that the Patio, located at 531 Castro Street, could increase its seating due to taking over several small retail spaces to use for a bar and lounge area.

“It is nicely renovated, which we should be encouraging people to do when they take properties and upgrade them,” said commissioner Michael Antonini.
