Renovations on The Hammer

I'll put up a couple from shots from my wife's iPhone covering renovations at the The Hammer: No. 14 - Lane 9, Wanhua Road, Younghe, New Taipei City / 新台北市 永和區文化路  9巷 14號. 

We're still missing a lot of stuff, but have decided to open on Saturday, November 17 nonetheless. The slowness of the process is driving me crazy; for example, we haven't been able to find certain ingredients even though we know they are out there in Taiwan. We don't have a sign either. Our bar stools make people look like midgets (need some new ones, I suppose) and our Blue Jay pictures have yet to arrive. Still, I am happy with the overall progress; some of it has gone really well.

The address seems incorrect, seems like there's no Wanhua (萬華?) or 文華路 in New Taipei (which is usually written 新北市, not 新台北市).

Am I correct assuming it is "No. 14, Lane 9, Wenhua Road, Yonghe district, New Taipei City / 新北市永和區文化路9巷14號"? Then it would seem to be near 不只有派 (Frankie's)...

Thanks for correcting me, I hope I can check your place out some time in the nearby future!

Cheers. I think you are right. I will correct it.

Is HAMMER 漢馬 or 含媽 in Chinese, Taiwanese pronounciation, or direct translation in Japanese as 金鎚?

It is very close to Frankie's. Dropping the bbq ribs off today.

"The Hammer" as in "If I had a hammer" - Hays and Seeger (or Peter Paul and Mary)?

The Hammer is my daughter's nickname.

I like the design. I was wondering, if you'll have a kind of a logo in a shape of a hammer :)

There's a sledge hammer on our cards, but not the front sign.
