If you are looking for a great place for an evening drink and gorgeous views this is the place. The lounge is only open after 4:30 so be sure to get there for the sunset. The is a nice wine selection but it is pricy!

Overpriced drinks but a very nice view over the city. Good sunset views if the fog isn't rolling in over the city.

Enjoyed watching the sunset from The View Lounge during my recent stay at the Marriott Marquis. As you might expect, it was packed, but lots of fun too. They have a great selection of cocktails!

First, the view is spectacular - if you can get a table near a window. Secondly, this is one of only a very few roof-top lounges remaining in San Francisco (Top of the Mark) is, I believe, the only other one. The large windows provide...More

Hit this roof level bar if you want to see SF from high. Expensive, noisy, crowded, server's can't keep up with the crowd - but the view is spectacular. Do it once at sunset and you will be thrilled.

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
