About The Hotel Utah: It was built in 1908, when the Barbary Coast was still going strong … 1908, the year Bette Davis was born. The year of the first Model T. Four years before Woody Guthrie was born. Nine years before the last time the White Sox won the World Series. Twenty-eight years before the Bay Bridge. This bar was standing before, during, and after Prohibition. The Deininger family opened the saloon, and commissioned furniture makers in Belgium to design and create its ornate bar-back. They also served the city’s best beer, Fredericksburg, brought to The Utah by horse and carriage and lowered into the cellar in wooden kegs. In the 1950s, Al Opatz presided over the saloon. His clientele were Beat Poets, gangsters, Marilyn Monroe, Joe DiMaggio, Bing Crosby, the cocktail generation. He eventually bought the bar in 1966 and renamed it Al’s Transbay Tavern. Al’s Transbay gets a mention in Coppola’s film, “The Conversation.” In 1977, Paul Gaer, who co-wrote the story for the 1979 film “The Electric Horseman,” bought the bar from Al. He renamed it The Utah and built a stage to support local music, experimental art, writers, comedy, and theater. Whoopi Goldberg, Robin Williams, and the Pickle Family Circus broke it in. It got a reputation — as one of the most generous stages in the city.
