Jelly’s dance café is exploring legal options to help fight a looming eviction.
The Port of San Francisco on Wednesday plans to end the tenancy of the longtime restaurant and bar, which is based on Pier 50 south of AT&T Park.
The City’s decision to evict the venue followed the slaying of Richmond man Lee Farley, who was gunned down outside the club on July 11.
Port officials said the decision was based on public safety concerns and complaints from neighbors about noise.
Jelly’s manager Clarice Lacau on Sunday said the venue has operated on a month-to-month lease for 16 years.
“I’ve hired some lawyers,” Lacau said. “I’m fighting the eviction.”
If the club is evicted, 10 workers will lose their jobs, according to Lacau.
