Discover San Francisco’s best bars, pubs, and cafes on this laid-back walking tour of North Beach. Kick off this San Francisco pub tour at the a hip little joint famous for its literary gatherings, which inspired several Beat generation writers. Get a taste of Anchor Steam ale, which has been made in the city since 1896, or try one of California’s world-class wines from the nearby Sonoma and Napa Valley. Still a local favorite, this bohemian café has a fantastic array of photos of writers, actors and artist adorning the walls.
Hit the pavement and head off into North Beach, one of San Francisco's most vibrant neighbourhoods. A beach no more, the area was settled upon landfill, including hundreds of abandoned ships left after the 1849 gold rush. Once home to fortune seekers, local fisherman, international sailors, and writers, North Beach still maintains a distinctly bohemian and Italian flair, which means it's nothing short of fascintating to take a walk through, especially with a local!
On this San Francisco night tour, you'll explore a number of local bars and cafes, from a bar decked out with sea faring trinkets left behind by sailors, to the city’s oldest watering hole with its colorful mix of locals and its thriving big Blues music scene. Sip on an espresso while experiencing the atmosphere of a traditional Italian café, complete with red leather booths and a classic jukebox spinning 45s. Later, there’s even a chance to serenade the house at a local karaoke bar!
End your San Francisco tour at Washington Square, a local hub that’s well connected to public transport, or an ideal spot if you want to continue exploring North Beach’s wealth of cafés, bars, and restaurants independently. Your guide will be happy to provide some excellent local suggestions to continue exploring, or give you some directions back to your accommodation.
