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.

Since 1975, the Plough and the Stars has been the heart of Irish traditional music. The bar has supported local musicians with seisuns and set dancing, as well as bluegrass and Americana. The Plough provides camaraderie and good cheer for patrons and has achieved longevity as a cultural and musical venue for local and touring musicians. Irish Music magazine described it in 2011 as “no apple juice and cookies listening room. It’s a raucous, hobnailed boot, pint for punt dancing and meeting place for its patrons.”

Be prepared: the Plough has received the Guinness “Gold Standard Award” for recognition of the achievement of the highest possible standards of quality dispense, pouring, and presentation of a pint.

The bar was added to the Legacy Business Registry on February 26, 2018.

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.
