circa 1905

Built in the pre-Prohibition era in 1905, the Fugazi building was only a year old when the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake struck. Luck, fortune, and a serious foundation allowed this building to remain standing. The Fugazi building was one of the few that did not burn.

The Yokohama Bank took over in the early 1900’s. The subterranean space below the bank floor concealed many secret nooks and hidden rooms, as well as the vault itself.

Over the years, these secluded rooms were all but forgotten. We have reopened the space as Circa 1905, featuring delectable drinks and creative cocktails paired with housemade treats to whet your appetite.

Come experience a bit of old San Francisco style in the heart of the FiDi.


Take a trip back in time to a different era in San Francisco.

The cocktails at c.1905 are meant to reflect the golden age of pre-Prohibition, where the spirit itself played a leading role, and “flair” was still simply the meticulous technique bar men and women used when making a perfectly executed classic. Here in this den, you will find a compendium of classic (and some not-so-classic) slings, aromatics, and highballs where the spirit shines, and your mood will mellow.
