San Francisco North Beach Pub Crawl

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Begin your San Francisco pub crawl in the heart of North Beach at Vesuvio Cafe, a historic saloon situated across from City Lights Bookstore. Learn about Beat poets like Jack Kerouac who used to frequent both locations, and soak up the eclectic atmosphere that inspired the Beat Generation. Enjoy an Anchor Steam Ale, which has been locally produced since 1896, or a glass of wine from the California wine country. One complimentary drink is included.
    Next, stroll past North Beach bars and sidewalk cafes as your guide highlights the Italian neighborhood’s history. You'll stop at venues such as a watering hole decorated with forgotten maritime paraphernalia and at the city's self-proclaimed oldest pub.
    Later, sip an espresso in a traditional Italian cafe where you can listen to classics on the jukebox, or serenade your fellow travelers at a local karaoke bar.
    As you wind your way through North Beach, you’ll conclude at Washington Square, site of Saints Peter and Paul Church. While the night is still young, you can continue exploring North Beach on your own or settle in at a sidewalk eatery for an Italian dinner.

    Engaging and informative. Kai was extremely knowledgeable about the area. He made the tour very fun.I would recommend this for anyone who wants to get a locals' perspective. Great food, drinks, and a cool history lesson all rolled in one.
