Heritage Happy Hour at Doc’s Clock, March 14, 2024

Join us at Doc’s Clock on Thursday, March 14th, for our monthly Heritage Happy Hour!
2417 Mission Street, 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.

When dentist Ralph Mancuso bought “The Clock Bar” in 1961 he gave it a name change and an iconic neon sign. Doc’s Clock has served many different communities over its many decades in the Mission District, its distinctive sign a consistent beacon of hospitality.

Doc’s Clock survived a car crashing in to it and then a one-block move down Mission Street in 2018. The sign and interior vibe came along to help keep alive a legacy of shuffleboard, doggy happy hours, and community supporting charity events. The bar was added to the Legacy Business Registry on August 22, 2016.

San Francisco’s Legacy Business Program is the first-of-its-kind in the United States. 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.
