Fantastic collection of books including many hard to find titles. Home of the Beats. 'A literary Meeting Place' since 1953. They also publish books, run a foundation to encourage reading and literacy and hold regular events and readings. The sort of bookshop to spend time browsing, reading and generally enjoying the atmosphere. Open daily until midnight. As a bonus it's just a short walk away from Francis Ford Coppola's Cafe Zoetrope, well worth a visit. If you like the Beats and you can't make San Francisco try Albion Beatnik Bookshop in Oxford.
