    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

    Un lugar lleno de nostalgia y buena literatura. Caminar por Culumbus St., tomarte un trago en el Vesuvio y luego ir a la biblioteca.

    Pequeña, atiborrada de libros, con gran variedad... ¡perfecta! además de tener su propia editorial publicando escritores locales

    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. Leer más

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    Bookstores don't get any better than this! Founded in San Francisco in 1953 during the Beat Era, it contains three floors of books, all housed in an historic building.

    This is one of the most expertly curated bookstores I've ever been to. Long after the Beat Generation faded, Ferlinghetti's voice is strong.

    One of my favorites!! They're open late, making city lights a great place to hang out after a few drinks :)

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

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

    Go to the third floor and find a copy of Ginsberg's "Howl" - the book that embroiled City Lights in an obscenity trial. Sit in the Poet's Chair and read it from start to finish.
