SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) – It’s the end of an era — at least for now.

Today, the ‘Stud SF’ — billed as San Francisco’s oldest gay bar — is permanently closing its location in the Soma neighborhood.​

The owner blames dwindling revenues because of the pandemic.

By month’s end — the Stud bar in San Francisco will no longer have a home in San Francisco.​

The venue’s collective of owners shared during a virtual news conference in the afternoon that their landlord has allowed them to break free from their current lease.​

The owners say the move will save them tens of thousands of dollars.​

“This is real. There is no plan currently to move it to another venue,” Co-owner Honey Mahogoney said. “We don’t have any contract in hand.”​

But the owner’s are hopeful that at some point down the road —  they will be capable of re-opening at another location.​
