As we mentioned last week, the venerable old Gold Dust Lounge was reborn on Friday with great pomp and circumstance, in a new location at 165 Jefferson Street in Fisherman’s Wharf. Today we bring you a look inside the relocated simulacrum of the old Union Square bar, which retains much of the look and feel of the nearly 100-year-old original, including its iconic marquis over the entrance.
Also, chandeliers and mirrors were brought over from the old space, and the space has a similar pressed tin ceiling.
For Friday’s grand opening, the bar’s band, Johnny and the Camaros, was on hand playing at the back of the bar, while a brass band played outside the front door. Fans and longtime patrons feted the bar all weekend long, and people crowded in to watch the Super Bowl, of course, as well.
Keep it mind for all your post-Ripley’s-Believe-It-Or-Not-museum-going drinking needs.
The Gold Dust Lounge - 165 Jefferson Street - Open seven days a week, 7 a.m. to 2 a.m.
