The View night San Francisco
The view lounge in San Francisco is a premier hang out spot after a long week. This is going to be a short sweet & to the point post.
The View Lounge is on the 39th floor of the Marriott Marquis Hotel. Never stayed here, but only heard positive feedback from friends. One of the coolest features of the lounge are open spaces couches, great for mingling with friends and new acquaintances.
Like the name suggests expect amazing views and the iconic half crescent art deco windows. It’s a perfect place for selfies and some professional photography especially during the sunset. Just watch out for Karl the fog that can within minutes cover the entire bay with a sheet of opaque mystery. It’s incredible to watch the city come to live as all the lights are turning on. It’s like SF comes goes through a quick wardrobe change and is all dressed up now to go out. The View night San Franciscois an itinerary item and simply a must visit while exploring the city.
The drinks are expensive and half decent. We had wine which was sub-impressive. Especially ever since we became Sonoma & Mendocino wine snobs. Food is – meahh; we had a some finger food and cheese, also not the best. The bar is totally up to the standard but fills up rather quickly, be there like at 6pm to get a spot, no pun intended.
Parking – just take Uber
The parking can cost an arm and a leg at the Marriot Marquis, so you can park at the near by parking structures, where a couple of hours will still cost you an arm and a leg. (We shelled out almost $50 for like 3-4 hours, yeah that’s anti-fun). Uber is the only solution that saves that forsaken town.
What else is there to do while checking out The View night San Francisco
There are a couple cool Jazz places nearby worth checking out. If you’ve never been to a Jazz bar you’ll be in for a treat. We randomly stumbled into Biscuits & Blues bar. Had a fantastic end of the night performance by some local musicians. Overall leaving a positive experience of SF.
That’s our California Perspective for tonight ! Ciao
