The Barbary Coast - San Francisco. Born during the California Gold Rush of 1849, the Barbary Coast was a red-light district which contained dance halls, concert saloons, bars, jazz clubs, variety shows, and brothels during the late 19th and early 20th-centuries. Its nine block area would be centered about a three block stretch of Pacific Street. Its former location is now overlapped by Chinatown, North Beach, and Jackson Square.
