SF’s Historic 160-Year Old Cliff House Coming Back in 2024
Thanks to the San Francisco Chronicle for breaking the news that the Cliff House, is expected to finally reopen in late 2024 after being closed for nearly four years.
The National Park Service, which owns the building, has awarded a 20-year lease to “Sutro Lands Ed Partners” who say the building will undergo a major remodel before re-opening.
According to SF Eater, the team taking over the Cliff House are the same people behind Vault Steakhouse and Trestle.
The operators have set up a very basic website at cliffhousefuture.com asking for the public’s input on what they’d like to see happen.
The restaurant, which was housed in the iconic building which sits on the edge of San Francisco’s western edge at Lands End, announced it was closing on December 31, 2020.
The 2020 closure was only partly due to the pandemic. The Cliff House pointed blame at the National Park Service for delaying a long term concession contact. The proprietors had been operating the restaurants for over 47 years, four years before it became part of the National Park System.
The Cliff House originally opened in 1863 but was destoyed in a fire in 1894. The second Clioff House building in 1896 survived the 1906 quiake, but was destroyed by another fire in 1907. The third (and current) cliff house was built in 1909.
