Heinold's First and Last Chance saloon at Jack London Square, which Jack London frequently visited. Heinold apparently let the young London study there and later lent him money for tuition to Cal Berkeley. The original building from 1883 is still a functioning bar and a popular place to have a beer and watch the boats sailing the estuary. A few feet away is the cabin London lived in when he went north to the Alaskan gold fields. (An image of it is in the above mural). London wrote about Heinold's in John Barleycorn.
