Located in the West Bottoms, the ship is the place to hear good music and dance. They play a good mix of soul, afro-beat and underground music that will keep you moving. Sometimes they have performances in the alley just behind the building. Just a good time.

Bakery
“Now called Ibis Bakery, but the same great breads you got at Fervere. A European style bread bakery, with some wonderful pastries and other goods on hand. Only open Thursday-Saturday, with limited hours and availability, so check their website and call in your order the night before if there’s something you know you want. Favorites: orchard bread, ciabatta, olive loaf, levain, and the amazing kouign aman pastry! In the summer, look for their cheese slipper nights for a super-popular, worth-the-wait-in-line-but-get-there-early-so-they-dont-run-out snack. Check out their website for details. A really unique neighborhood shop!”
