The Lobby Bar 

The Lobby Bar has a rich and storied past.  Founded in 1859 by William H. Lobby,


a mediocre russian fur trader from Nadhodka who upon realizing there were


no bears in San Francisco, opened the Lobby Bar as a way to domesticate


Ducks as pets. Seen in the photo from 1859 on the left, The Lobby Bar has


contributed nothing to San Francisco or Pacific Heights, other than being


housed in a building that was consideredgroundbreakingly awful for it's design


in the 1850's. It's widely speculated that Frank Lloyd Wright upon seeing the


structureat 1790 broadway was quoted as saying "damn, that's Ugly".
