The Vesuvio Cafe



The Vesuvio Cafe is one of those unique San Francisco places. It is really not a Café but more of a saloon. It is located in North Beach right across the street from the famous City Lights Bookstore. The Vesuvio was first established in 1948 and remains an historical monument to jazz, poetry, art and the good life of the Beat Generation. Vesuvio attracts a diverse clientele: artists, chess players, cab drivers, seamen and business people, European visitors to this day:

The Vesuvio is one of those truly San Francisco places. It was a regular hangout of Jack Kerouac and other famous Beat poets and has become ground zero for pilgrims on the Beat trail ever since and I enjoy every visit I have there.
