Notes
While most variety halls of San Francisco's Barbary Coast were sleazy, squalid affairs, the Bella Union was of a slightly higher class of establishment. This woodcut illustration offers a rare view of the opulence of its interior.

Place notes
Located on on north side of Washington between Kearny and Dupont (later Grant) Streets, the Bella Union was a combination gambling hall, bar, and variety theater (showing burlesque, can-can dancing, ballet, minstrelsy, and early vaudeville). This type of establishment was also known as a melodeon or concert saloon, and the Bella Union was the most well-known and popular of its kind on San Francisco's Barbary Coast. Many well-known performers of the time started (such as Lotta Crabtree) or ended (such as Elisa Biscaccianti) their careers at the Bella Union. The building housing the theater burned down several times during various fires that swept the city in the 19th century, and again during the 1906 earthquake and fire, but it was rebuilt each time. As of 2005, the structure still stands, but now houses offices.SFPALM
