Sweeties – North Beach
Sweeties is one of the best bars I have ever stumbled across accidentally. I was in North Beach visiting a friend, and while walking around killing time, I saw a mysterious awning labeled “Sweeties”. Sweeties? Sweeties?! What in the world could possibly be in this place? I had to check it out.
What I wasn’t expecting was to find a fantastic neighborhood bar. While Sweeties is no frills, the bartenders and general vibe are too nice for this to be called a dive. It’s just a small, comfy bar full of North Beach residents kicking back with cold beers and lacking the roving packs of “Whoooooo!” yelling youths that crowd into bars closer to the main drag. If you find yourself in this neck of the woods and want to get away from the tourists, this is the perfect spot.
