The San Franciscans: Harry Denton
For nearly thirty years, Harry Denton has been the life of the party in San Francisco. The restaurant and nightclub entrepreneur came to the City from Idaho and was hooked on its charm in short order. Following the successful Harry's Bar on Fillmore in the '80s, Harry opened his Harry Denton's on Steuart Street in 1991. Mister SF was there for the opening when Nell Carter floored the crowd with a wonderfully filthy song about keeping a tight reign on her pocketbook. Then as now, Harry is the nucleus of good times, something he attributes to his professionalism and appreciation for the best food and wine, in addition to his delusions of grandeur. Harry also operates the Starlight Rooftop at the Sir Francis Drake hotel in addition to his newest joint, Rouge, at Polk and Broadway.
