5 must-see spots in Chinatown in San Francisco

1) Li Po Lounge

Between the 1930s and 1960s, especially during World War II, Chinatown was bustling with nightclubs and cocktail lounges. Li Po is one of the last remaining and is still open to this day. Some claim it looks the same as it did when it opened in 1937. Pop in for a Chinese Mai Tai.
