Specs’ Twelve Adler Museum – North Beach
Any mini historical tour of North Beach is not complete without a visit to Specs. Tired of the drunken hoards and over priced drinks of the main strip? The bartenders at Specs brook no gruff, and the subtle sign for the bar is easy to miss, keeping Specs a delightful hidden getaway.
Have cash at the ready and keep your drink order simple, and the bar keep will take good care of you. In addition to the salty bartenders and old timer regulars, Specs provides entertainment by way of a mind blowing collection of sea travel paraphernalia. Every inch of the bar is covered in sailor’s treasure, and you’re sure to find something new with each visit. What you won’t find is a bar full of ironic haircuts or a Saturday night pickup scene, and that’s A-OK with me. For a long time lover of classic dive bars, Specs is the old man bar mother ship.
