SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — Residents near San Francisco’s growing Polk Street bar scene said they’ve had enough of what they are calling late night noise.

Some neighbors met with several bar owners as well as members of the City’s Entertainment Commission Monday at the main library branch on Larkin Street to address the issue.

Residents at the meeting said as more bars open up on Polk, the decibel level seems to have jumped.

People from the 1200 block of Polk complained about the number of people in the streets during bars’ closing time hours and even as late as 2:30 a.m.

Conor Nugent, part owner of Mayes Oyster House, said that he welcomes the chance to start a dialogue between residents.

“We’re here to discuss any sort of results but certainly we’re not here to ostracize our customer base,” Nugent said.

At least one bar owner said he plans to hire extra security for Friday and Saturday nights.

Police said they do get a number of calls about Polk Street’s bars, but so far it’s been nothing out of the ordinary.
