The Gold Dust Lounge opened in 1933 and has been a San Francisco institution ever since. But now the historic Union Square watering hole may be forced to close its doors after receiving a lease cancellation notice from its landlord... Save the Gold Dust Lounge!
chat-up the tourists, or pretend you're one!
This fantastic dive bar from another era caters to the tourists, but we come here for the atmosphere, the cheap prices (cash only) and the bartenders. Opens at 7am!
Check out the lovely ladies painted on the ceiling.
Happy Hour $4 Margaritas :)
People over 60 still hangout here. Cocktails are cheap and strong.
Super safe for solo chicks staff monitors constantly-GREAT live trio LOVE THIS PLACE also 5 buck stiff vodka drinks makes me happy
The band is great if you like the classics. A tip will get your favorites played.
Only bar in SF I've been kicked out of.
Before 8:30PM Irish Coffees are only 3.50 each.
Nice environment.. Happy hour ends at 7:30pm or so- don't miss it or you'll pay a lot extra. Also, get the drinks with the awkward dirty names (ie dirty nipple).
That isn't a giant mint in the toilet.
Great house band!
Alas, they are closing for good on March 10. Get in while you can!
$3.50 Irish Coffee, Champagne, and Margarita! Local cool hang
So bright in here!!
Handlery Hotels ; the landlords , want to shut this historical landmark down for more retail...
Margaritas were pretty damn cheap. Sometimes live music.
Irish coffee rocked my face
Live music, European tourists and Irish coffees
Don't call the bartender honey! Consider yourself warned.
Live music great for sing-along. Saloon-like atmosphere so wear your jeans and boots. Delish fruit-flavored cocktail called the Wowo.
$3.50 Mimosas and Margaritas
Irish coffee. 3.50
The house band is awesome. As in "what California was in the sixties awesome". If that suits you fine... Enjoy!
Come here before 8.30 pm and get a delicious margarita for 3.50$ and listen to the house band after 8.30pm.
Mike and Casey are the sweetest bar tenders! You will find them both there on Fridays! They love to make em strong!
Live music! Enough said.
"Extra large" margaritas are awful small.
The band starts at 8:30. Different band each night. $3.50 Margaritas and Irish Coffee!
Save the Gold Dust!!! Real bars in San Francisco for real people!
Daniel is the best doorman ever created. Tactful, handsome, and looks out for the females in the bar. Army training's best exemplified.
Eurovision once again..reasonable drinks, a good kick off to a night of undiscovered mischief. ;)
Liquid cocaine, try that shit.
Closing march 10. What a shame
SAVE THE GOLD DUST!!! Ask the bertenders to sign the petition to keep the bar running! I love this place.
Order a glass of bubbly enjoy the live music! Best bar in the city ;)
Ask The waitress for a Dutch rudder on the rocks. Seriously. Delish.
the gay bartender has an attitude. had to wait 15min at the bar to get service, than comes over with a "what do u want" look on his face. I shouldnt have left a tip.
Tip Johnny Z and the Camaro's to play "Sweet Caroline" for you as you sip on a drink.
