The Beat Goes On!
Tucked into a quiet side-street on Telegraph Hill, one block up from North Beach’s Washington Square Park (half a block up from Grant Ave, and just below Coit Tower), this delightful pied-a-terre is right in the thick of things.
This is the heart of the beat scene. Artists. Poets. Musicians. Herb Caen coined the word “beatnik” right around the corner in a bohemian café known to the hep cats as “The Place.” This was the heartbeat of a creative and idealistic generation with independent minds. It was a time of change and innovation. And art, art, art …
This light-filled, cozy charmer is a warm “welcome home” after days at the cafés, galleries, museums, sight seeing––a restful sanctuary after nights at the clubs, the opera,
theater or symphony.
Centrally located, Bob Kaufman Alley is a block from Mama’s Restaurant. It’s just a short hike up the hill to Coit Tower from here or, a level three blocks south along Grant to Café Trieste (one more block across Columbus to City Lights book store). It’s also easy walking distance to Hyde Street Pier at the beach, Fishermen’s Wharf, Ghirardelli Square, the Cannery, Downtown San Francisco, Chinatown, the Embarcadero….
