the house of shields re-opens • san francisco, ca

There's plenty of old bars in San Francisco, but few over a hundred years old, which is just one reason why the House of Shield's re-opening is so newsworthy. Condé Nast Traveler granted the bar's re-opening for its Concierge.com Unpacked newsletter feature yesterday, loving that the bar has no clock (or a TV); the SF Chronicle's Inside Scoop column ogles over the authentic "period piece" detailing (check out the brass statue lighting fixtures below); and foodie blog favorite Tablehopper digs up some juicy historical facts about the former men's drinking club. And I love that there will be absolutely no mention of "mixology" here!

The House of Shields is located at 39 New Montgomery Street, across from the Palace Hotel, in San Francisco.
