Good News: Doc’s Clock is Moving, Not Closing

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news


If you remembered we reported last year that Doc’s Clock was closing. Then we reported that it was saved.

Now here are all the final details that I just got from Carrie who owns the joint:

The rumors are not true! We are not closing. Due to circumstances beyond our control we will be closing the doors at our current location, 2575 Mission Street (Mission and 22nd), and moving one block away to 2417 Mission Street (Mission and 20th). Luckily, we have found a new landlord who wants our friendly neighborhood bar in his building.

Doc’s has been serving the Mission Community in it’s current local for over 60 years. Most people in San Francisco have had at least a beer, a shot, or a game of shuffle board at Doc’s Clock. We will be giving Last Call in the current location sometime around the end of May. The first pint of beer, aka First Call, at the new location 2417 Mission Street will be a few weeks later.

We will not be re-concepting! We will be keeping the same staff with the same great beers and same great back bar. Yes, Shuffle Board will be coming. Yes, pinball will be coming. Yes the old jukebox, bar top, bar stools, and everything else we can move, will be coming.

Please come join us in the coming months to send off the old girl in style and once the doors open to the new Doc’s, we will all be there to welcome you.

A great excuse to see the new Doc’s Clock is to get a copy of the SF Beer Passport and use the coupon when you check out the new space. These things are almost gone so get yours now.

Hooray for Doc’s Clock!
