The moment you set foot inside Petit Marlowe, you’ll forget that you’re in San Francisco.
The Parisian-inspired wine bar and oysterette has all the charm of a brasserie you might find tucked away on an alley off Rue Cler. Designed by Ken Fulk, it’s a beauty with authentic pieces from Paris’ Les Puces de Saint-Ouen flea market sourced on a trip with owner Anna Weinberg.
“We scored the red-and-black antique bibliotheque that became the back bar, a Louis XVI commode we used for the server station, glass-and-brass lights over the bar, and a pair of stuffed ducks we affectionately named Percy and Prudence,” says Fulk.
Arched mirrors hang above pretty-in-pink Italian leather banquettes, which are punctuated by Parisian-style street lamps.
