Gold Dust Lounge, once located in Union Square for an impressive 80 years, will finally reopen today in its new neighborhood. And, of course, it will be quite the affair. It all starts at the original Union Square location at 3:15 pm. Bar owners will bid adieu to the old watering hole form a motorized cable car. The procession will then make its way to the new digs in Fisherman's Wharf.
SF Appeal has more:
The processional is expected to arrive at Fisherman's Wharf by 4 p.m. where San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, Supervisors David Chiu, Jane Kim, Scott Weiner, Carmen Chu, London Breed, Norman Yee and police and fire chiefs Greg Suhr and Joanne Hayes-White, and District Attorney George Gascon and state Sen. Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, will cut the ribbon at the new 2,700-square-foot space that has recreated the well-known, albeit somewhat smaller, Powell Street bar.
Decor from the old bar will be replicated at its new home. Johnny Z and the Camaros, the house band, will perform. If you can swing it, you should head over there to partake in the boozy merriment. Bar should officially open at 7 pm.
And, yes, Gold Dust Lounge will be ready for any and all who want to come watch the Super Bowl on Sunday!
