Venue Setting

The dual-concept launch of Polite Provisions and sister restaurant, Soda & Swine, brings a renewed spirit of community to a bustling street corner of one of San Diego\'s most eclectic, burgeoning neighborhoods, Normal Heights. Helmed by Consortium Holdings—the ambitious social engineering duo sparking a new wave of cultural interest in San Diego’s evolving urban hospitality movement—the new concepts opened doors in February 2013 to an incredible amount of pre-launch buzz, including Imbibe magazine’s “The Imbibe 75” of 2013, Eater National\'s “40 Most Anticipated Openings of 2013”, and Details magazine\'s “Where to Drink in 2013”.

Design:
The deliberately intricate and intellectually stimulating décor includes experimental design elements that Consortium Holdings has become distinctly known for, including a colossal centerpiece smokestack, opening air ceilings, and antique pharmaceutical accouterment. Our venue is an ode to the golden era of soda fountain.
