THE LITTLE SHAMROCK: San Francisco’s Oldest Continuously Operating Bar

Angus MacFarlane

For decades an anonymous saloon has celebrated itself as the oldest, continuously operating bar in San Francisco. Years of meticulous, painstaking research, however, have determined that the Little Shamrock, a cozy, unpretentious Sunset bar is the true champion. Its story is also the story of an amazing woman and her families. Help celebrate the Wee Shammy’s 125th anniversary of continuous service to our community.
