Inside the secret themed bar at San Francisco’s Portola fest

0 18


In its first year, Portola Music Festival, booked by Coachella organizer Goldenvoice, took over Pier 80 on Saturday and Sunday with four stages of electronic music. 

For San Francisco festivalgoers conditioned to the grassy forest of Golden Gate Park, Portola felt very different. Whereas Outside Lands fills the festival with murals and art installations, there were almost no decorations on the concrete grounds aside from some blue AstroTurf near the main stage. Views of the bay and the towering industrial landscape gave the event a sense of grandeur, but aside from the epic setting, the festival felt spartan and utilitarian.

With one notable exception.

Gimme Gimme Gimme, an ABBA-themed bar at Portola Music Festival, played music from the Swedish pop group on loop and offered two signature cocktails, the Peacekeeper and the Desert Disco Queen.

Tucked in the far northeast corner of the festival grounds behind an unassuming white wall, most festivalgoers likely walked right past the semisecret bar. Hidden in plain sight, Gimme Gimme Gimme is an ABBA-themed oasis run by Lower Nob Hill cocktail bar Peacekeeper. Music from the Swedish pop group played on loop (an endurance test for the staff), while a light-up disco floor bathed the room in neon greens, yellows and purples. Security guards stood watch at the entrance, perhaps to monitor capacity if the space turned into a raging dance party later in the evening. 

As far as drinks go, the menu was short and sweet, with two signature cocktails: the Peacekeeper (tequila, serrano chile, pineapple, ginger, lime) and the Desert Disco Queen (rye, ancho liqueur, raspberry liqueur, grapefruit shrub, fresh lemon, bitters).

The bar will run through the close of the festival Sunday. See more photos SFGATE took at Portola.
