A Tinder-Optimized Origami-Instructing Cocktail Menu at Dalva in San Francisco
July 10, 2015
The longstanding bar Dalva in the Mission District spawned The Hideout, a top-quality cocktail bar in its own back room, and ABV, a casual fine cocktail bar across the street from some of the same owners.
The original front bar room at Dalva has remained a more relaxed venue with simpler cocktails, though they got rid of soda guns and flavored vodkas a while back to become better aligned with the Hideout.
On July 8, they launched the new front bar menu - still a simple one with just seven classics and one near-classic; a Negroni & Tonic. The menu comes on a homemade angled slab of wood and lists the cocktails, spirits, beer, wine, and several pages of origami instructions.
The front page of the menu mentions that packets of origami paper are available for purchase.
The back page references the Tinder date during which you both can assemble a frog or water lily while having your awkward first date conversation.
The bartenders know what's up.
