|The sign for the Gold Dust Lounge
But I have been reading that their lease is up and the owners of building-the Handlery family wants the bar gone so they can put a store there. I feel that let the Gold Dust Lounge stay. Every time I walk by it is full of people and it has the charm of old time San Francisco. It isn't a chichi place that today's young, hip and modern people go. It isn't a cool clothes store that will be here today and gone tomorrow as so many stores have done. It is an old-time place that has been in the same location for 47 years and been around Powell St. for almost 80 years.

Every time I have gone into the Gold Dust Lounge, people who are there are always nice and are happy that you are there. Unlike some of the newer, hipper places that are just clueless about anybody who is not like them. The Gold Dust Lounge treats everybody the same-the regular or the if you just want to enjoy an old style and be on your way-as a respected person
