The Gold Dust Lounge pours the Best & Cheapest $5 Irish Coffee in San Francisco at Fisherman’s Wharf. Located on Jefferson Street, across the way from Boudin and Alioto’s, it’s three times the size of the original location. That said, they did keep the motif as a whole, as well as details like the ceiling cherubs, Irish coffees and the signature marquee signage. Many have named this Irish Coffee the best in the world, beating out the entire country of Ireland itself. Although our signature is the Original San Francisco Bloody Mary, the Irish Coffee comes in a close second on our list of specialty drinks. Strong and hot, Our rendition of the Irish Coffee may rival that of the Buena Vista. Our $5 Irish Coffee price cannot be beat and has been voted the Best Deal in San Francisco. For Irish Coffee, the Gold Dust Lounge uses Lavazza coffee (so you know it’s good), a healthy pour of Irish whiskey, some brown sugar, and a topping of heavy cream. Bundle up outside and warm up over your coffee, or take a seat in the dimly lit bar area. But head in on a regular day and enjoy the sprawling bar, mellow attendees, and reasonably priced drinks. Thick, sweet cream combines with strong coffee and a kick of whiskey to satisfy an Irish Coffee craving. A slick, old west reminder of a time long since past. Founded in 1933, Gold Dust Lounge is definitely one of San Francisco's landmarks. The mural on the ceilings and the framed currency in the bar gives the lounge its unique flavor. Gold Dust Lounge caters to people who love to listen to live music and enjoy irish coffees which is featured almost nightly. Our New location is located at 165 Jefferson St. Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco - Call us today at (415) 397-1695 ...alas the Gold Dust Lounge will live on at its new address (165 Jefferson Street) at Fisherman's Wharf.

It was a fun spot for late-night drinks in the tourist area. Sadly it stops serving food early, or I would have added another star. GooglePlace - September 2017

I came here because we were at the Wharf like all other tourists and we were seeking a stiff drink and some good seafood. This place was actually rated fairly high compared to the surrounding joints, so we stopped in. It was empty, which can be kind of a sign if you want to read into it, but we forged ahead regardless. The bartender was awesome. Making slick jokes at my expense, it's all good. I have thick skin. Irish accent, cool fellow. This entire place seems like a flashback to the 70s, and I wasn't even born yet in the 70s. I ordered the clam chowder in a sourdough bowl. I love it. Ate the entire bowl too. The shrimp cocktail though, not my favorite. All I tasted was cocktail sauce and nothing else. Sort of ruined the seafood and I'd never recommend it. But we had a good time talking to our new Irish friend, eating some good chowder and sourdough, and some horrible shrimp cocktail. Went back outside and watched a dude swallow swords.
