A Great Place to Drink is set in a hotel-bar at the outer edges of San Francisco’s North Beach in the early 1960s. When Duncan and, later, Carolyn wander into the San Giovanni hotel-bar with its dim lights, cheap drinks, characters drifting in and out, and Ray Charles on the jukebox, they feel anonymous and comfortable .It’s the home they didn’t expect to find, the authenticity they didn’t know they were seeking.In real life the San Giovanni was inspired by the San Gottardo, a small Swiss Italian hotel and bar, 217 Columbus Avenue, home to poets, transients, in-betweeners and out-of-luckers, musicians, painters, retirees, immigrants, escapees from 1950s suburbia, all scratching a living: drinkers and drunks one and all.
