From the Beatnik-inspired blue collars to the Italian immigrants of the Italian Quarter, North Beach and Telegraph Hill venues are vast and varied, attracting a mixed bag of patrons on a daily basis.

From morning, the streets are alight with the buzz of people, and who can blame them when there is so much on offer here? Diverse neighborhood in many ways, North Beach is home to hippies, hipsters and yuppies mostly, while Telegraph Hill hosts a similar bunch, not to mention the diverse list of races that call these neighborhoods home.

A venue in itself, North Beach is one the coolest, most sought out neighborhoods in the Bay Area to hang out in. Relating back to the celebrated days of City Lights book shop – with legends such as Ginsberg and Kerouac popularizing the art of “hanging” – crowds can be seen gathering in the many bars and restaurants that represent these districts, or even City Lights bookshop itself.

The Saloon is an awesome venue in North Beach to kick back in, too. Attracting a variety of carousers, this North Beach venue holds the title of San Francisco’s oldest bar. And, whether or not the perfect balance of ambience has been a game of trial and error for over a century, one thing is clear: this is the ideal hang out venue in North Beach.
