And it all takes place at the historic Mayes at 1233 Polk, the second-oldest seafood restaurant in San Francisco. Founded in 1867 by George Mayes, the "George Mayes Oyster Saloon & Chophouse", the restaurant relocated from California Street after the 1906 Earthquake and Fire. When the building burned down, they operated out of a tent until moving to Polk Street at Post, eventually relocating to the current location. The spot used to have a very different past - think separate door to the bar before ladies were allowed, a speakeasy downstairs, or rooms upstairs for, uh, working girls. Mayes' son updated it to an Italian seafood joint, and since then a few other restaurant incarnations were housed in the space. Back in 2009, the new owners resurrected Mayes with a modern vibe and a more "global" menu.Today it's the busiest bar/night club on Polk Street. The starting point for any pub crawl or SF neighborhood event.
