History

Voted best Gay Bar in San Francisco


Voted Best Gay Bar in San Francisco for 2016 Nitey Awards.  In 1977, a bar at the corner of 18th and Hartford formerly known as The Corner Store officially became The Moby Dick Bar. In those almost 40 years, the bar adapted to the many changes in the times and in the community, but one thing has remained consistent. Moby Dick remains the consummate neighborhood bar, with friendly faces, affordable drinks, and enjoyable entertainment.

In 2002,Joe purchased Moby Dick and in 2010 Scot became a partner  and together they carefully molded the bar into its current incarnation. One of the characteristics of the bar that they are most proud of is that they’ve managed to maintain a steady group of familiar faces who have been coming to the bar for years, and in addition have managed to appeal to brand new customers who feel immediately welcome.
