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.

Zeitgeist is a San Francisco one-of-a-kind historic brew pub and beer garden located on Valencia Street between Duboce Avenue and McCoppin Street in the Mission District. The bar’s origins date back to 1972, when it opened as Rainbow Cattle Company and became a hangout for gay hippies.

Renamed “Zeitgeist” in 1986, the business has served as a local gathering spot over the decades, featuring Bay Area craft beers and giving back to the neighborhood by hosting fundraising events, providing shelter for neighbors displaced by fires, and providing holiday offerings from the kitchen for patrons who live far from home. Passionate about beer, Zeitgeist is a regular participant in San Francisco Beer Week and takes suggestions on its beer offerings from its customers.

The bar was added to the Legacy Business Registry on October 3, 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.
