The Saloon
1232 Grant Street
San Francisco

(415) 989 7666

San Francisco's North Beach area doesn't exactly have a beach as Fisherman's Wharf and Telegraph Hill are between it and the Bay, but it is not lacking in atmosphere.  The Saloon was the bar of the old Hotel fresno, established in 1861, and it is the oldest tavern in North Beach, one of the three oldest in San Francisco and was the first to bring in live music.

The corner you see was rumoured to be the worst in the Barbery Coast!

Well-known landmarks such as the City Lights bookstore, next to the Vesuvio, tiny Jack Keruack Street and the Stinking Rose are all a short walk from The Saloon, located at 1232 Grant Street.
