Welcome to the Savoy Tivoli Bar
Our bar features a classic, cozy atmosphere that transports you back in time to the golden age of San Francisco. From our vintage wooden bar to our antique light fixtures, every detail of the Savoy Tivoli Bar has been preserved to maintain the charm and character of the original establishment.
History of Savoy Tivoli
The Savoy Tivoli opens as a coffee house, restaurant and boarding house for Italian seafarers. The building was finished just after the great quake of 1906 and was called the "Savoy Hotel." It is a popular spot for Italian immigrants who were working in the city's fishing and shipping industries. For over 50 years the Savoy enjoys a reputation as an affordable fine dining establishment in North Beach.
The Savoy Tivoli is purchased by Fred Kuh, who renames it and turns it into a nightclub. Kuh is a local businessman who is passionate about music and theater. He brought in new bands and performers, and the Savoy Tivoli quickly became a popular spot for the city's counterculture scene including the Beatniks. In that era, the Savoy hosted influential figures such as Truman Capote, Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, and Ken Kesey and soon after, the “hippies” that followed their generation and brought The Summer of Love.
