In the glory days of San Francisco’s Gold Rush era, large ships dropped anchor at the rollicking Barbary Coast (known today as the Jackson Square design district), providing ungainly fortune hunters curbside access to the city’s best opium dens and brothels. Where docks once existed, turn-of-the-century brick-and-timber structures now stand. Inside the historical Musto Building, which has been transformed into a fashionable new members-only social club called The Battery by acclaimed SF designer Ken Fulk, one particularly dark and contemplative space bears the name of the legendary waterfront.
