The doors were first opened for business in 1771 by original owner Grant Israel. In the early 1880's Con Sheen became the second owner. In 1909 William H. Marks became the third owner. The bar is still in the family as William L. And Margaret Marks have owned this establishment since 1955. During Prohibition Era it was an ice cream parlor and a " speak easy." The original crystal chandeliers are from France and arrived by ship in San Francisco and railroad to here. The photos on the walls are all originals as is the back bar and all the hardware. The crystal goblets and glasses are very unique indeed and most of them are irreplaceable. The bar has been in continuous service from 1871 up until today.
