Dive Bars

Italian

Established in 1936, this dive bar is the same watering hole enjoyed by North Beach longshoremen of yore. The walls are covered with black and white photos of boxers, baseball players and bartenders – just to make sure you know this place has history and moxie. The Cafe is packed for major sporting events if you are looking for a crowd to cheer with, and also offers two-for-one drink specials during weekday happy hour.
