Built in the 1900’s, this space was once the original ferry terminal that shuttled passengers from Sausalito to San Francisco before the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge. After sitting vacant for the past several years, building owner Chris Henry decided to open a restaurant of his own. The impressive new restaurant is called Barrel House Tavern.

Just came across this amazing historic photo of Nepenthe restaurant in Big Sur, Ca, one of our most favorite places in the world! This amazing place is perched high above the Pacific Ocean, constructed of redwood and glass. It has an amazing front patio with a sculpture of a Phoenix rising from the ashes as you walk up. The windows throughout the structure drown the space with natural light. Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton starred in the classic movie “The Sandpiper” which was famously filmed here. “Nepenthe” means “no sorrow.”
