charming, historic North Beach haunt, Vesuvio`s
has displayed the works of local artists since its opening in the
managed the dank Spec's, across the street from Vesuvio and down the
alley at 12 Adler Ct. (415-421-4112).
Francis Ford Coppola penned portions of "The Godfather "at the club. Welsh poet Dylan Thomas loved to drink there. As did Jack Kerouac. Paul Kantner of the Jefferson Airplane still goes there to enjoy the bohemian atmosphere. And there is plenty of that. They have poetry reading there also and lots of cool memorabilia of the beatnik times. thankfully still cool as ever.
