New Structurally Sound Parklet Coming To Upper Haight

A new parklet is currently under construction outside Martin Macks on Haight Street, and from the looks of the brick walls going up around the perimeter it plans be a permanent fixture in the Upper Haight.

Martin Macks tends to attract soccer fans looking to watch 6am Premier League games, but since its renovation the bar has a much more open feel to it with the large front windows facing the street.

However, alfresco in the Upper Haight is a tough sell. If you’re going to enjoy a beer in a parklet located on Haight Street you’ll need to be willing to ward off trustafarians, tourists, and general weirdos.

That’s not to say outside seating in the Upper Haight isn’t catching on. Local establishments such as Magnolia Pub offers outside seating along Haight St., and the much loved Haight Street Market has started to set up a few tables and chairs on the sidewalk as well.

We usually tend to frequent Martin Macks once a year solely for their epic Super Bowl party, but I might entertain the idea of Guinness on the street more often with the addition of this new parklet.

    Structurally sound?! You could kick down the walls with one hard shove of the foot.
    The wire barriers are pulling away from the brick, as they’re not securely attached.
    It’s a poorly planned and poorly constructed eyesore.
    The day it’s smashed to bits by a delivery truck cannot come too soon.
