Owl Tree Bar in San Francisco

I was saddened to hear that the beloved owner and bartender of this famous place passed away last week. I am wondering if the bar is still open. I've unfortunately never had the opportunity to go to The Owl Tree and was hoping to go next weekend to pay my respects when I was in San Francisco. Any information would be great -- thanks!

    What's your source for this? I hadn't heard about his passing, but would be quite saddened if this is accurate.

      Guess that goes to show how much I don't read the paper. Thanks.

        Across the street from the Bohemian Club which is all things owl and this guy had nothing to do with them. His owls were a coincidence to theirs. Amazing place and man. Always wore one surgeon's glove while cutting fruit for drinks. Another San Francisco legend gone.
