Great Local Boozer, We live in Nigeria and Travel a lot and this place is exactly what we like. Friendly locals bar, and a great owner and bar staff.
Pop in when its quiet during the day for a few to enhance the follow on sight seeing/shopping, it works for us

La Rocca's is great. It's a divey bar right between North Beach and Fisherman's Wharf, so obviously it's going to be a bit dodgy. But in a really awesome way.

How could you not love this place? I too have experienced the bartender losing my card after watching him put it in his pocket. But the good times we've had here over the years have been worth the wait of the new card to arrive in the mail!! If your looking for a good dive bar to get a little loud and crazy, this is it. If your well mannered and behaved, perhaps you might want to look for a different bar to pass the time.

My wife and I went to La Rocca's Corner Tavern to watch an NBA playoff game. We were there for about 2 hours and when I went to close out my tab the bartender didn't remember taking my credit card. He basically called me a liar and said that I never gave it to him. I had to call and cancel my card. When I asked the credit card company about the last purchase on the card, not surprising to me, it was at the bar. Basically, the bartender was so drunk he must have given my credit card to someone else by mistake. Can't say that I've ever had that happen before.

Pros: Historic bar in North Beach

Cons: Bartender drinks more than the patrons

If you're a tourist, be really very careful there... Some of the bartenders are not really ""balanced""... A friend of mine experienced a very bad evening there, with one of them.

In Short
A sign on the window of this corner bar encourages patrons to "Drink with Dignity," which is what North Beach native Joe DiMaggio used to do here when he was in town. Many local legends have revolved around theā€¦
