City Lights

An independent bookstore, gathering place, and cultural landmark, City Lights made a name for itself decades back by publishing some of the last century’s most influential poetry — including Allen Ginsberg’s seminal Howl and Frank O’Hara’s Lunch Poems. Browse the bookshelves and take your spoils to a tiny table at the bar next door — Vesuvio Cafe — for the perfect North Beach hang.
