The Port of San Francisco is a semi-independent organization run by a five-member commission, appointed by the Mayor and approved by the Board of Supervisors. The Port is responsible for managing the larger waterfront area that extends from the anchorage of the Golden Gate Bridge, along the Marina district, all the way around the north and east shores of the city of San Francisco including Fisherman's Wharf and the Embarcadero, and southward to the city line just beyond Candlestick Point. In 1968, the State of California via the California State Lands Commission for the State operated San Francisco Port Authority (est. 1957) transferred its responsibilities for the Harbor of San Francisco waterfront to the City and County of San Francisco / San Francisco Harbor Commission through the Burton Act AB2649. All eligible State port authority employees had the option to become employees of the City and County of San Francisco to maintain consistent operation of the Port of San Francisco.The Port of San Francisco lies on the western edge of the San Francisco Bay near the Golden Gate. It has been called one of the three great natural harbors in the world, but it took two long centuries for navigators from Spain and England to find the anchorage originally called Yerba Buena. A port, as was said in its early days, in which all the fleets of the world could find anchorage.

Caffè Trieste is an internationally known chain of four Italian-themed coffeehouses plus one retail store in the San Francisco and Monterey Bay Areas California. Caffè Trieste was opened in 1956 by Giovanni Giotta (aka "Papa Gianni"), who in 1951 had emigrated to the United States from the small fishing town of Rovigno D'Istria, Italy (now part of Croatia). Missing the espresso houses of Trieste, Italy, Giotta opened his own cafe. Caffè Trieste is said to be the first espresso house on the West Coast.CappuccinoThe original Caffè Trieste in San Francisco's North Beach quickly became popular among the neighborhood's primarily Italian residents. "It was all Italian people," Giotta said of the neighborhood, "But I got the American people to like cappuccino." Papa Gianni Giotta is known as "The Espresso Pioneer", both in Italy and America, earning the label by having brought Espresso and Cappuccino to the West Coast, thus starting the Espresso Movement seen today. The company's Licensing Program promises to open, on a one-by-one, "non cookie-cutter" basis, more Trieste locations in the SF Bay Area, Northern California, Southern California, the Southwest and East Coast areas.
We, the partners of 447 Broadway believe that the time is now for a new direction on Broadway; for fresh concepts that will bring new crowds and more diversity to the street. The goal? Stimulate the economy, bring out new entrepreneurs and mark the start of Broadway's return to its legacy status as a major cultural and musical destination for tourists and locals alike. We seek to lead this change with the introduction of a completely redesigned and newly branded upscale happy hour lounge and Top 40 dance club at 447 Broadway.
Proudly announcing, “HUE,” a new lounge and dance club which promises to bring energy and excitement to the block, adding to the wave of fresh faces enveloping the entire neighborhood. It has started at Tosca's, The Comstock, Devils Acre, Doc’s Lab (and the future ChinaLive/Box Theatre) on Columbus to the west, and The Battery and the soon‐to‐be Teatro Zinzani to the east. HUE aspires to provide a new destination for the thousands of young urban professionals ages 21 ‐ 35, now working and playing in the Financial and in SOMA, flooding San Francisco with spending and activity not seen since the days of the Gold Rush. HUE will target this demographic with a newly remodeled venue divided into an upscale “street friendly” happy hour lounge and an intimate dance club showcasing live music, DJ led sets, and dancing.
HUE, is a talent‐driven destination venue which will attract it’s targeted demographic through an intense focus on musical programming. The format is Top 40, Pop, House and Electronic Dance Music with offerings ranging from local singer‐songwriters and budding DJ’s in the lounge, to regionally and nationally known DJ's, live track performances by trending artists, and the occasional band in the dance club. House DJ’s will be under contract to create the target environment and digressions from format will not be tolerated.
HUE will distinguish itself from its competitors through its superior musical offerings. The talent buying team will be led by partner Bennett Montoya; an industry veteran with more than 12 years in the field. Bennett will dedicate himself, full‐time, to curating a program specifically targeted to the desired demographic – a new, more gentile crowd.
HUE’s principal marketing partner will be 99.7 FM, which speaks directly to this demographic through a blend of Top 40 hits culled from the Billboard charts. An in‐house promotional team will support this effort by promoting HUES’s brand and message through all appropriate social media channels as well as standard print media, radio and ticketing agencies. In addition, the partners and consultants at HUE hope to engage the other clubs on the street as part of a larger effort to diversify the entertainment offerings of Broadway.
HUE's musical format is best typified by the artists below. Some of these artists will be booked for special appearances, most will be covered by our local singer‐songwriters, and their music will be played over the sound system.

The Old Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco Building, now known as the Bently Reserve, was the main headquarters building of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco for nearly sixty years. The building is located at 400 Sansome Street, in the Financial District of San Francisco. Designed by George W. Kelham, the building has an Ionic colonnade that is pure Beaux-Arts, while the upper building is in the new Moderne fashion of 1924. The banking lobby at the Sansome Street entrance contains a mural by Jules Guerin, the artist who created the palette for the 1915 Panama–Pacific International Exposition. The Old Federal Reserve was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.
In 1983, the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco relocated to larger facilities at 101 Market Street, and the 400 Sansome Street location was sold to private developers who rented out the space. Prominent law firm Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe was headquartered in the building until 2002, when the firm moved out of the space.
