    City Lights is a can't-miss for its historic past. The bookstore and non-profit publisher focuses on progressive works and printed locally authored collections like Allen Ginsberg's famous Howl. 자세히 보기

    If you like to browse your books late at night, this is the place to go. Open till midnight. Staff is super helpful, they don't turn to a computer straight away to find something.

    Very special, old bookstore. Be sure to spend your time downstairs: it's roomier, not rushed, and have very interesting material. In the post-bookstore era, this one reminds you how great they can be.

    If your looking for something new, hip or different. If you're lost and looking for a bible that's significant towards the development of your personal mythology..look no further.

    A legend still doing high volume. Fun to see that they can assert a strong literary perspective in their recommendations and staff picks offline, in today's best seller, Amazon universe.

    Parada obligatoria en el tour literario de San Francisco. Después de estar viendo los libros, vale la pena tomarse una cerveza enfrente, en el bar Vesuvio, lugar al q solían ir Kerouac y los beatniks

    Not as funky as I would have imagined it to be, but great selection (and obviously a worthwhile landmark for any lover of books or beatniks) nonetheless

    Relax with a book in the original Beatnik hangout, the first all-paperback bookstore in America when poet-owner Lawrence Ferlinghetti opened the doors in 1953. - Green Guide Editor

    An integral part of SF's beatnik history. The original publishers of Howl, they have a great beatnik section as well as other great books. - Kellie, Community Manager

    Any bookstore where you can shop till midnight, and catch Daniel Handler in a fez playing the accordion, cannot be a bad bookstore.

    No public bathroom. The science fiction section is small and at the very back of the basement. They have great graphic novels. :)

    In 1956 founder Lawrence Ferlinghetti published Alan Ginsberg's beatnik classic poem "Howl", and faced obscenity charges for it. In a landmark ruling, the poem was protected by the First Amendment.
