Columbus Cafe

Map & Directions 562 Green
San Francisco, CA 94133


SF Weekly's Description

The Columbus Cafe is North Beach in a nutshell: quaint and cozy when quiet, rowdy and frat-tastic when busy. There's a lot of history in this 75-year-old bar - whether admiring the antique pressed-tin ceiling or gazing at the vintage photographs on the walls, it's possible to feel the past lurking all around you - but you might not notice when post-collegiate kids crowd inside on weekends, crank Top 40 dance tunes on the digital jukebox, and shout loudly at sports on the flat-screen TVs. The daily happy hour offers a good way to sample the 26 beers on tap: buy any draft between 4-8 p.m. and you'll get a redeemable token for a free draft next round.

    Go to Columbus Cafe for Happy Hour and get a drink token, good to redeem at any hour...as long as hour is happy.

    Fun fact: this place is not on Columbus nor a Cafe

    Don't be afraid to ask for your chip if they don't give it to you. Different color tokens depending on what price level your beer lands in.
