Buena Vista Irish Coffee in San Francisco Buena Vista Irish Coffee in San Francisco

1. Drink an Irish Coffeee at the Buena Vista 

Famous bartender Larry Nolan serves up thousands of Irish coffees a day at The Buena Vista, using a recipe that was perfected in 1952. It’s not just the quantity that’s impressive, but the technique too. On a busy night a couple dozen stemmed glasses will be lined up in a row and strategically filled in a low-tech assembly line fashion. Also, if you sit at the bar with Larry, he might possibly blow your mind with fun magic tricks while you drink your Irish coffee. Bonus.

The 16th avenue steps are a neighborhood project to create beautiful mosaic artwork on a set of 163 stairs.

Make your way to the top, stopping to marvel at the fascinating artwork along the way and to catch your breath because the stairs are pretty steep! 

This splashy “Things to do in San Francisco” attraction is situated in a quiet residential area, with limited tourists and plenty of parking. There were only six other people when we went for a visit, two were a newly married couple taking their wedding photographs.
