San Francisco has been home to some of the greatest saloons in the world. Most are but a memory, but a few classics remain. Arguably, the most beautiful survivor would be Vesuvio Cafe on Columbus between North Beach and Chinatown. Owner Janet Clyde was gracious enough to give us an inside look at this iconic establishment.
Vesuvio Cafe, 255 Columbus Ave. (near Broadway), San Francisco, CA 94133
