“I want all of you to think back 40 years and try and remember the way you were” – Myron Mu

Celebrating 40 years of ownership at San Francisco’s oldest bar ‘The Saloon’ – proprietor Myron Mu accepting a ‘Certificate Of Honor’ from the City and County of San Francisco, bestowed upon him by Supervisor Aaron Peskin – thanking him and his sister Vera for their dedication and excellent stewardship while keeping The Saloon open and thriving.

Located near the corner of Columbus and Broadway at 1232 Grant Avenue, The Saloon hosts two live bands a day, 7 days a week.


*This is the note from Chris Cobb that Myron references in the video: “Thanks Myron, I’m planning to come by this Thursday for your 40th anniversary celebration.

CONGRATULATIONS, my friend!! You have done a truly outstanding job, of always giving your customers a great time. They get to see and hear the best unique local music around in a comfortable, non-pretentious setting with actual reasonably priced drinks. Not only that but you are friend and supporter of all of us local musicians. You have no idea how much that means to me as well as any other musicians that I know well enough to talk about it with. I’m not positive but I’m pretty sure that I started playing at The Saloon around 1985, so I‘ve been around just about the whole 40 years. It’s been my pleasure. Thanks for the date on the 21st and thank you for all the great years too. See you Thursday night. Chris
