Fans of Trick Dog, the wildly popular bar in the Mission District that debuts an entirely new menu every six months, get excited. The team’s second and highly anticipated new project, Bon Voyage, opened its doors earlier this week. From Josh Harris and Morgan Schick, the star duo behind BVHospitality and The Bon Vivants, the bar is inspired by travel and all the adventure that it ensues.

“When brainstorming ideas, we kept coming up with the narrative of a guy who lives in a hotel and travels throughout Southeast Asia and Africa in the 1950s, moving his way across the world, collecting art and mementos from his journey,” says Harris. “He then ends up in 1970s Palm Springs, where he buys a house to fill with his worldly treasures and throws killer disco cocktail parties and serves Chinese food.”

Naturally, Bon Voyage has a disco bar and Chinese food along with a selection of tantalizing cocktails: slings, Collins, and housemade specialties. Harris and Schick don’t mess around: all drinks consist of homemade ingredients and upscale spirits. Beverage names are creative and fun. The Blue Caterpillar consists of Bulleit bourbon, Tempus Fugit Kina l’Avion d’Or, lychee wood-aged “Midori,” and lemon, while the Bananarac is a mixture of Old Overholt Bonded rye, Brandy Sainte Louise, banana, bananisette, and bitters.

A short but sweet selection of beer and wine features all natural wines and light tropical-style beers including a unique brew commissioned by Ale Industries, a Kolsch-style Bon Voyage Sling Beer. Chef Wilder Marroquin is behind the snack menu of Chinese fare including dumplings, pork buns, spring rolls, and wok items like explosive kung pao chicken and salt and pepper gulf prawns.

Any of Harris’ 9,100 Instagram followers know that he is a treasure hunter who frequents antique fairs and the Alameda Flea Market. He’s been shopping for Bon Voyage for months and filled the interior with an eclectic mix of artwork and curiosities.
