The relocation of Video Droid — a popular JC campus hangout — to its new (smaller) nearby digs begged the question: What’s going into the high-profile 1901 Mendocino Avenue space? The answer, which has been brewing in beer circles for a while, is Heritage Public House.
Moving from its Cleveland Avenue location, partner Dino D’Argenzio says the expanded public house and gastropub is a better fit location-wise and demographically.
Expected to open in February, they’ll have a small menu, 20 craft beers on tap along with a beer garden and entertainment lineup. D’Argenzio’s son, Roman, will be general manager.
“We are really excited about it,” D’Argenzio said. Heritage joins a growing craft beer movement in the Northbay that includes several new brewpubs, microbreweries and specialty beer retailers.

I think construction is starting on the former Burger King/ soon-to-be Chick-fil-a. Let the torrent of hatred begin.
If you look at a map of Santa Rosa you see a cluster of restaurant/coffee shops off the northeast corner of the Junior College, and then there is nothing serving the Junior College neighborhood until you get south of College Ave. The one exception is Joey’s Pizza/The Belvedere. I would love to see some decent restaurant/bar/coffee shop open up to grab the foot traffic business of this huge and relatively affluent neighborhood. Somebody could make a killing.
