The Trident is a restaurant in Sausalito, California, originally opened in 1966 as a bar-restaurant-music venue by the Kingston Trio, and noted for its psychedelic murals dating to the 1960s, and its ties to the music counterculture of that era.[1] The Trident closed in 1976; in 1980, the restaurant was renamed Horizons, and became a popular tourist destination, until 2012, when it resumed its Trident title. The current owners also operate the Buena Vista Cafe in San Francisco.[2] The restaurant is located in the former 1898 home of the San Francisco Yacht Club.[3][4]

During the summers of 1974, 1975 and 1976, Robin Williams worked as a busser at The Trident.[5]
