Vesuvio Cafe, San Francisco: 10 reviews and 14 photos

  Too much to drink?
by RblWthACoz

Vesuvio was first opened in 1948 and has had an interesting history since then. It was a hangout for Jack Kerouac and other Beat writers and has stayed the course for over 50 years as a drinking destination for people from all walks of life. It's the best example of a chill bar and a place that never gets wild just for the hell of it. People are here to relax, talk, and think.
