    After employees of Zeitgeist saw analysis of a 28-unit development project across Valencia Street at 198 Valencia that indicated the development would cast a shadow on parts of its popular patio beer garden at peak hours, the bar initiated a review of the 198 Valencia project with the Planning Commission in December . While various reports in the meantime have pointed to Zeitgeist winning or losing that fight, eventually the bar struck a compromise with the developer to cut the ceiling height for the development's ground floor retail space from 15 feet to 10 feet.

    Thursday | SFGate

    Partisans of the Mission District's famous Zeitgeist Beer Garden won a victory Thursday when the Planning Commission voted to shave five feet off a proposed condominium building that critics said would have blocked some of the precious sunshine that makes the bar's backyard one of San Francisco's most popular al fresco drinking spots. The five-story, 28-unit condo development at 198 Valencia St., currently the site of an automobile oil changing shop, will likely cut the ceiling height in the ground floor retail space from 15 feet to 10 feet to conform to the commission's decision.
