10 Great Things to Do in San Francisco


4. Experience a genuine speakeasy

During the Prohibition of the early 20s, illegal speakeasies were where people went for a surreptitious drink. Some of these establishments needed to resort to spy movie tactics to get customers in without getting caught. Coffee Dan’s, for instance, had a slide that customers used to access the underground bar area. The slide at Coffee Dan’s is still in use. Visiting one of these establishments can put you in touch with the colorful history of the city.
