Join us at The Irish Bank for our monthly Heritage Happy Hour!
10 Mark Lane, San Francisco.
Heritage Happy Hour is a convivial “no-host” gathering of heritage professionals, young preservationists, aficionados, friends, and Legacy Business cohorts interested in safeguarding San Francisco’s unique architectural and cultural identity. We get together on the Second Thursday of each month from 5-7 pm at a registered Legacy Business bar in San Francisco.
The Irish Bank Bar and Restaurant is an Irish pub nestled in its own alleyway in Union Square at the edge of the Financial District. The pub, originally opened in 1996 by Irish immigrants Christopher Martin and Rory Connolly, is an institution in the city of San Francisco. It is recognized by locals and – being located at the convergence of Union Square, the Financial District, and Chinatown – is a destination for tourists visiting the city and looking for a specific San Francisco experience. The Irish Bank offers a great range of Irish food that would be very common on bar menus all over Ireland. Their most popular items are shepherd’s pie, Irish beef stew, bangers and mash, and fish and chips.
San Francisco’s Legacy Business Program is the first-of-its-kind in the U.S. The program supports and promotes iconic, small businesses over 30 years in operation that are long-standing pillars of our communities and neighborhoods. San Francisco Heritage (est. 1971), has protected the city in the face of rapid change by advocating for historic resources, hosting educational programming, and interpreting and preserving cultural heritage. The Legacy Business Program (est. 2015), provides marketing, business assistance, and specialized grants for local small businesses included on the Legacy Business Registry.
