Sheba Piano Lounge : A User’s Guide
Ethiopian Cuisine | Live Music | Ethiopian-Inspired Cocktails | Imported Spices | Native Ethiopian Chef
In the lounge: meatballs topped in blue cheese
In the dining room: tibs wat—sauteed prime beef simmered in berbere sauce and Ethiopian butter
Cocktail: Red Sea—a bloody mary made with Ethiopian spices
Dessert: warm cheesecake brownie
The Vibe: The dividing wall inside Sheba Lounge looks like it came from a church, and for good reason—it’s a replica of the one in the Church of St. George, an Ethiopian Orthodox church carved out of rock in Lalibela. The rest of the space surrounds diners in warm, tropical tones.
Who’s Cooking: Owner and chef Netsanet Alemayehu started cooking in her native Harar, Ethiopia when she was just nine years old. Today, Ms. Alemayehu still relies on Ethiopian recipes and techniques. In fact, she has fresh spices, sauces, and other ingredients shipped in from relatives who still live in Harar.
When to Go: When the restaurant hosts live music, which begins at 8 p.m. Sunday–Thursday, and 9 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The setlists range from Afro-Cuban jazz to classical violin.
Don’t look for a fork. Most patrons eat with their hands, in the traditional Ethiopian style.
Press and Praise
In 2009, San Francisco Chronicle profiled Netsanet Alemayehu's career and background.
SF Weekly's Tamara Palmer said, "[w]e expected good food, but what we didn't expect was the design of the space, which we think is among the most interesting on all of Fillmore Street."
Injera: a flatbread made with fermented batter that's central to many Ethiopian dishes. Traditionally, diners break off small pieces and use it to scoop up mouthfuls of food.
Berbere: the signature spice mixture in Ethiopian food; it combines about a dozen spices including clove, cinnamon, paprika, cumin, and red chilies.

By the Numbers
1912—the year the saloon opened

A Bar Reborn: In 2013, new owners took over Dogpatch Saloon, and they remodeled from floor to ceiling. They also added decor elements that echo the city’s industrial roots, namely an old Muni track—made by Bethlehem Steel—that now serves as the bar’s rail. They left a couple of the old bar’s elements, including the brass bell used for last call and the familiar stained-glass window that welcomes patrons inside.
While You’re Waiting: Listen to owner and bartender Marc Goldfine. He’s a trained voice actor, and his resonate tones carry throughout the bar and directly into his patrons’ hearts.
Bring a furry friend. True to its name, the bar welcomes dogs.
Follow Dogpatch on Twitter to stay up-to-date on new beers, drinks, and spirits.
Eater included Dogpatch Saloon on their list of SF Bartenders' Favorite Spots to Drink.
