SF dive bar closes after devastating flood damage
After a temporary closure caused by damage from flooding during the New Year’s Eve storm, San Francisco Mission dive bar The Wooden Nickel has announced it won’t reopen. Co-owner Nancy Chung shared the news in an update on the bar’s GoFundMe page, as first reported by Broke-Ass Stuart.
“It breaks my heart to disclose that the Nickel will not reopen,” read the announcement. “The flood damage to the building opened the door to a massive mold problem in and under the building. The remediation needed will take a considerable amount of time and money and it’s unclear who is responsible for it.”
