North Beach Memories
San Francisco, California
from ~1960 to 1985
This page lists the Middle Eastern, Greek, Turkish,
Spanish or Persian clubs that formed an important
part of the community in the North Beach district
of San Francisco during the 1960s to mid '80s. Many
of the artists and owners moved around to different
venues. Names we have listed here link to stories
that will give you more information on each club.
Each club name is linked to that club's own page with
more information and hopefully photographs. You will
find and image map further down the page that will
allow you to roam the 3 blocks of Broadway near Columbus
where most of the clubs were located.
are always looking for additional information and
memories of those who were there. Have we overlooked
a club that you can recall? Please contact
the editor if you would like to contribute to
this ever growing oral (and written) history project.
