The Making of The Sherwood
While preserving key historic structural pieces like a show-stopping grand fireplace and the rustic ceiling trusses from 1939, a bar unlike any other in West Portal emerges from a single idea -a mission to help keep the culture of this special part of the city alive.
The Sherwood was created with intent to be a ‘nod to the neighborhood’ with a play on neighboring area - Sherwood Forest (SF’s smallest neighborhood) as well as a tribute to the historic Sherwood Forest located in Nottinghamshire, England - famously known as the hideaway home of folk hero Robin Hood.
The Sherwood features a gorgeous antimicrobial copper edge bar, stunning locally milled woodwork, classically cool furnishes, a touchless bathroom faucet to support long-term health and safety. With crystal chandeliers, gold accents, and cozy seating options, this experience is sure to excite those seeking a place to host cherished conversation or who desire a comfortable space to kick back and watch the game.
Owners, Foli Media, are actively reviving store fronts and increasing job opportunities in the San Francisco bay area and accomplishing this through their other businesses like Vitae Wellness CBD Boutique located at 317 Cortland Ave which is now open and Mary Modern Cannabis Boutique at 2843 Geary Blvd opening Summer 2021.
