John’s Grill

Johns-Grill-San-Francisco

Greetings friends! Are you on the hunt for a historic restaurant in San Francisco that is packed with history, amazing ambience, and jazz music? Well boy do I have a treat for you! I recently discovered a local gem that is located right in the heart of Downtown, San Francisco. Luckily for me, and a few other bloggers, we were invited to do a tasting at John’s Grill , a restaurant highly known for its epic history and long list of local and national celebrities stopping by.

My favorite part?

The furniture! Being here definitely brought back a historic appeal that is pretty rare to come across nowadays. Go ahead and check out their HOMEPAGE and tell me you are not instantly transported back in time!

Ready to take a gander? Lets go!

INTERIOR DECOR

The windows here are straight out of a movie- romantic, mysterious, and oh so intriguing.

portraits and photographs are placed throughout the entire restaurant. No corner goes unnoticed!

As a matter of fact, there are occasions where creators DO come here to shoot shorts films! I mean, how can they not?!

Its a perfect scene for the cast of Grease. Imagine Danny and Sandy frolicking through the tables to the sound of the jazz music (which is performed during dinner time right there on the right side of this photo!).

The clam chowder was so smooth and creamy! It can easily fill up two people.

I would have loved to come later in the night to watch the jazz live performance upstairs. Did I mention they have not one, but THREE floors? Whether you are traveling solo or with your clan, they will have space for your party.

Gems like John’s Grill, and other amazing historic restaurants in San Francisco, truly make the city what it is. I hope you give this spot a gander the next time you are traveling to San Francisco or if you are looking to travel back in time for a moment!
