Brought some friends from the UK here for a drink around 11pm on a Friday night. They loved the panoramic views of the city. The music was on but was not so loud that you couldn't still converse. Nice chill place to hang out and...More

I took my out-of-town parents to the Sunday Brunch Drag Show (Sunday's a Drag) and it was perfect! My parents love entertainment, and they were a little wary when I told them I was taking them to a drag show, but it turned out to...More

We were keen to experience the Starlight Room which we had heard a great deal about. A group of 8 of us went for pre dinner cocktails. The view was amazing, the service poor, the drinks very expensive, especially when we were charged quite a...More

I was surprised that average age of this club seemed to be in the 30's; I expected an older crowd. In typical SF fashion, drinks are expensive. Great views of the city, and the DJ kept people on the dancefloor.

It's worth visiting the Starlight Room for the beautiful views of the city, especially from the dance floor. However it's dated and someone stole our table from us while we were up (seating is strictly managed by staff, but obviously it wasn't strict enough, since...More

This is a tried and true San Francisco establishment. The roof top location overs a splendid view. You must go for a happy hour cocktail and see the city from on high.

Definitely go for a drink if you're in the neighborhood -- it's worth it for the view. We missed the drag brunch, but I wish we would have seen it.More

This place jumps on the weekends, but during the week it is a nice place to have a drink and enjoy the city lights of San Francisco. The wine is not very good, but the beer and mixed drinks are fine,

Went there for the 11am Sunday brunch. The brunch was delish and not over the top, the drinks were tasty and the service excellent. Once the show started, Donna, the MC, worked the room and made everyone feel welcome and SPECIAL. She clearly loves her...More
