Another one bites the dust, and this one’s sad. One of the more charming remaining gay dives in the vicinity of Polk Street and the Tenderloin — one of only two remaining holdouts, in fact, from the bygone era when Polk was a hustler-filled gay district — has apparently been sold to straight owners, and seems likely to close very soon. Gangway, which has been a gay bar since at least 1961, and has been a bar for 106 years straight, since 1910, was on the market as of about six months ago according to Tablehopper, and via a liquor license license transfer application dated Jan. 6, it looks like a bar called Daddy Bones may be the next business to take over — or at least that’s the working title right now.
