Lonely Planet review for AP Hotaling Warehouse
'If, as they say, God spanked the town/For being over-frisky/Why did He burn His churches down/And spare Hotaling's whiskey?' The snappiest comeback in SF history was this saloon-goers' retort after Hotaling's 1866 whiskey warehouse survived the 1906 earthquake and fire. Many considered this divine retribution for Barbary Coast debauchery. A bronze plaque with this ditty still graces the resilient Italianate building.
