Legacy Bars & Restaurants, the very cool history guide that launched last year to help commemorate and celebrate San Francisco’s oldest and most iconic establishments, has announced their final round of inductees. They include The Ramp (1950), Café Du Nord (1908), Hi Dive (1916), and Roosevelt Tamale Parlor (1919). All establishments involved in the project have been open for 40 years or more, contribute to the cultural history of their neighborhood, and feature distinctive architecture or design, so you know they’re all worth checking out.

They’ve also launched a nifty pocket guide, which is ideal for sharing with out-of-town guests (or, hello, Father’s Day walking tour!).

As many of you know, the history of San Francisco’s bars and restaurants is near and dear to the hopper’s heart, so we love this project. And hey, we’ve even got a line of vintage San Francisco bar and restaurant T-shirts that include actual logos and art from some of San Francisco’s iconic old establishments, including the Blue Fox. They’re all locally screenprinted on soft, flattering shirts, too, making them a great gift for a friend, loved one, or, hey, yourself! There’s also a cozy Blue Fox hoodie that will get you through our SF “summer.”
