San Francisco’s Oldest Gay Bar Closes Down

The Gangway, San Francisco’s oldest continuously operating gay bar, has shut its doors for the final time. It will become the Kung Fu Action Theater & Laundry, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. The haunt first opened in 1910—surviving even Prohibition—and began specifically catering to a gay clientele by 1960. Among its most notable frequenters: Harvey Milk. A former employee said the Gangway was “full of relics and homages to our struggle... a living museum.”
