The Dorian, a Victorian period-themed bar and restaurant in San Francisco’s Marina, has been sold and will close its doors sometime after the end of October, according to a social media post by its proprietors.

The restaurant ownership group, Palm House Hospitality, has reportedly sold the location at 2001 Chestnut St. to Kingston Wu of Wilder SF, according to EaterSF.

“We’re incredibly grateful to our loyal patrons, dedicated staff, and everyone who made The Dorian such an integral part of the Marina community,” the establishment posted on its Facebook page. “We are confident this beloved location will continue to thrive and evolve, providing new and exciting experiences for generations to come.”

According to the post, the Dorian will operate as usual and will host a variety of events, such as a Fleet Week party on Oct. 8 and a Halloween Beastly Ball on Oct. 27.

The restaurant also plans to host a 1980s party—date to be determined—as a celebration of eight years of operation as well as the final send-off before it closes for good.
