Gino & Carlo Cocktail Lounge
San Francisco, CA 94133
- Daily 6am-2am
SF Weekly's Description
Usually playing Tony Bennett's "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" on the jukebox is a cliché best left to tourist traps - but hearing the man born Anthony Benedetto sing his ode to S.F. feels right at Gino and Carlo, an old-school Italian joint in North Beach where diehard locals often outnumber visitors. Gino and Carlo is more of a neighborhood hangout than a trendy destination, the kind of place you go to drink fizzy American lager on tap, shoot pool on the two tables in back, and scope out the tributes by Frank Sinatra, Herb Caen, and other icons on the walls. This is the City as it used to be.
