Around North Beach
Largely residential, this are has a wide array of apartment homes and condos. Essential to this area are the Century old authentic lofts, modernized within but still reflecting that "Ol' San Fran" charm exterior. There are expensive three and four-story single-family homes and some top floors offer views of Coit Tower and the Golden Gate Bridge.
This is the place to go for truly authentic Italian cuisine. The list of Italian restaurants is impressive; many have been featured in magazines and have received the highest awards. Locals love the homemade gnocchi from some of the popular Italian restaurants in North Beach. You will also find Asian and American restaurants nearby and one of the most famous restaurants are off Columbus Avenue.
North Beach is widely creative and supportive of the arts. Italian pottery stores and galleries can be perused in between grabbing a slice of pizza or cup of coffee. At night the streets are animated with patrons taking advantage of the bar scene. A compact layout makes traveling the streets a breeze, which is why North Beach is one of the most beloved neighborhoods of San Francisco.
North Beach is really not for youngsters once the sun goes down. The nightlife scene here is pretty serious and there are numerous jazz clubs, bars, and nightclubs, including the flashing neon lights of some red light entertainment. For a more sophisticated evening, check out the bar in the Basque Hotel, which is a revered lounge rendering a cool vibe with the soothing sounds of electronica. There are other bars in the area that offer subtle enjoyment and are a favorite among locals for good drinks and great looking people.
With all the exciting adventures to be had, the most popular attraction, oddly enough, is a bookstore. The City Lights Bookstore, once made famous by writers like Jack Kerouac, remains a popular joint for artists, writers, and the creatively-minded locals of San Francisco to swap ideas about the universe. Feeling like an afternoon picnic? Head to Washington Square Park and bask in the lush greenery of this adored park. Facing the architecturally majestic Saints Peter and Paul Church, one could easily forget they are in the city and spend an entire afternoon people-watching.
