Eagle Tavern Closure: Supervisors Send a Letter of 'Deep Concern' to SFPD

Always a good crowd at the Eagle

Supervisors

Scott Wiener, Jane Kim, and David Campos sent SF Weekly a

letter addressed to acting Police Chief Jeff Godown, instructing him to “closely scrutinize” any transfer of the liquor license

to ensure that the Eagle Tavern remains as we know it today.

The Eagle Tavern recently celebrated its 30th year. It is one of

San Francisco's oldest gay bars, and has long been a center of the city's

queer community — and it's set to close later this month.

“We are adamantly opposed to any sale that would result in the Eagle's destruction,” the supes say in the April 14 letter.
