Tours of the Tales

Dining with Anna and Friends

Many establishments – particularly bars and clubs – featured in Armistead Maupin’s books have since closed.  The buildings were either vacant or have been converted into other types of businesses altogether (for example, one has been turned into a service for individuals who are homeless) at the time this list was created.  For these reasons, those establishments have not been included in this list.

As with the rest of the content of the Tours of the Tales website, this list will be periodically updated.  If you have updates, please forward them to me.  I appreciate your help.

NOTE:  Please do not consider this list an exhaustive list of eating/drinking establishments in San Francisco.  For example, although there are several restaurants listed in “North Beach” below, there are many more excellent places in North Beach in addition to those listed.  Also, do not consider this list an endorsement of any place included in the list.

This list of restaurants, bars, delis, and food stores are related in one way or another to The Tales of the City (books and/or films) as well as to The Night Listener.  They are grouped by neighborhoods or areas in San Francisco.  Some have already been included in existing walking tours.  More will be included in future tours.
