Italian • Nightlife • Beatnik
Walkable and likable, this neighborhood has a diverse array of people that are as fun to observe as the gorgeous views. By day, pay homage to the Beatnik era with a visit to Jack Kerouac Alley and the Beat Museum, or tap into the area's Italian roots by sampling the authentic fare —afternoon Chianti anyone? Nighttime is a whole different story, when neon lights come on to illuminate the neighborhood's offbeat side—sultry cabarets and strip clubs.
