The Downtown Sacramento Renaissance continues with the grand opening of a long-awaited food and drink space in the former D.O. Mills Bank Building at the corner of 7th and J Streets.
They're calling it "The Bank" and it will ultimately feature seven kitchens, with a wide variety of food items including offerings from the Preservation Kitchen and Market.
“They’re famous for their Bloody Mary mixes and pickled goods,” said General Manager Juliet House. “They’ll do Bloody Mary meatballs. They’re also going to have smoked meat, sandwiches, and things like that.”
"Mama Kin" will serve up southern comfort food and there'll be "Platypus Pizza" - authentically Italian!
"Station Eight" will open a spin-off of Sacramento's popular "Station Sixteen" - with burgers, shakes and their famous lobster rolls. An in-house cafe will feature local sandwiches from Zia's and baked goods from Bella Bru, and there'll even be Mexican-style street tacos from a restaurant that's yet to be named.
The Bank will also feature plenty of adult beverages.
“We have a big, busy, bustling main bar that's open and meant for anyone to belly up to,” said House. “We have the mezzanine bar that’s a little more luxurious by design. If you’re looking for that feeling of a high end San Francisco or New York style bar, that’s where you’re going to find those offerings.
Down below, in the Vault, is what House calls “a glorified beer hall.”
“We have 68 taps down there, all of which are self-pour,” House continued.
A new spin on a historical building, House says The Bank is welcoming and approachable to just about everybody.
