Planning Commission to review Doc’s Clock’s relocation plans

The future of longtime Mission Street bar Doc’s Clock is in the Planning Commission’s hands on Dec 1, when a Conditional Use Authorization will be reviewed for the bar’s relocation.

Doc’s Clock has sat at 2575 Mission St. for the past 65 years, but its current lease will expire next year. After securing Legacy Business status, the bar is now working on moving to a new location down the street, at 2417 Mission St.

“Our new landlord loves Doc’s, wants us there, wants the sign and has given us a long lease,” owner Carey Suckow told Broke Ass Stuart earlier this year. “We are hoping to be able to move by the time our current lease is up in July 2017 but that is all in the hands of the Planning Department and their permitting processes.”

The Planning Commission will review the plans to move the bar to 2417 Mission St. on Dec 1, which include the transference of the existing liquor license, the relocation and installation of a vintage sign, and the change of use from a vacant retail spot to a bar.
