The Westin St. Francis

335 Powell Street, Union Square, San Francisco, CA 94103
54 reviews

I can't believe nobody has mentioned the glass elevators at the Westin St. Francis! Perhaps they have their own postcard. This is an insider's tip: For a fun 60 second trip and amazing view of the city, walk into the Westin St. Francis. From the lobby, head towards the back by going around the left side. You'll see a bank ...

    Riding a Cable Car

    204 reviews

    So much fun but a bit scaring! You have to experience the cable car ride when you're in SF. You also have to hang onto the outside poles for the real deal.

    Uniqlo is a Japanese fashion brand, often compared to Gap. They sell basics in several colorways, mostly in cotton, though they do sell silk shirts, down jackets, and cashmere sweaters. It's my favorite store for basics, so I own many items from here in multiples - legging jeans, "room pants", which are basically pajamas that I wear out in public, ...

    2 reviews

    Sign up for a walking tour through the most fascinating and provocative years in San Francisco history, the era of the notorious Barbary Coast. Or just walk along where Gold Rush miners and railroad tycoons once walked. The 3.8-mile set of bronze plaques set into the sidewalk wend their way through Downtown to Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf and North Beach, ...

    Cute, new place near Union Square away from the main tourist spots. Serves Blue Bottle coffee, short to no lines, quick food pick-me-ups and artisinal-looking tiny sandwiches. I like.

    Gold Dust Lounge -- RELOCATED

    0.05 mi from The Westin St. Francis
    3 reviews

    Gold Dust Lounge is a must-visit bar in SF that caters to tourists but is beloved by locals. It was established in the early 1900s, but now runs the risk of being shut down to be transformed into a clothing store (numerous petitions are being signed as we speak). With $3.50 margaritas, Irish coffees and glasses of Champagne, you can't ...

    Dewey Monument

    2 reviews

    I once posted a photo of the Dewey Monument on Facebook, only to find a local friend asking me if it was a recent addition. Not really, as it was established in 1903. Regardless, it's a remarkable pillar and statue that should not be overlooked by anyone, tourist or local. The history of Admiral Dewey's achievements are inscribed on the ...

    My favorite of the large theatres in San Francisco. Lovely inside and out. If felt like I saw Phantom of the Opera from virtually every location and each seat was fantastic. Looking forward to my next visit.

    Ruby Skye is usually best on Saturday nights since a lot of world renonuned DJ's are lined up to play here. The lines run very long after 10pm so get there early. The DJ's from Europe usually end up here playing Euro Trance. SF's version of Ministry of Sound.

    This was the most unique tour of SF I have ever been on. It takes you on a psychedelic trip not only through the city, but through time itself! Showing all the places that the 60's and 70's effected the great city. Seeing the city like never before was done through elaborate music, movies, and of course our amazing tour ...

    Great atmosphere for a bar inside the Cliff Hotel. As you enter from Geary St, you will be greeted with a cozy living room setting, with a Big chair. Trust me, its a Big chair. A lot of people like to climb on top of it and take pictures. You may seem small sitting on that Big chair but the ...

    This is a nice bar and lounge with an old school type feel and vibe. There is slightly more sophistication and elegance than your average D-Bag Tech Nerd watering hole. The crowd is generally older than your 20-30s something dot commer. It is located inside the Mystic Hotel, which is a boutique hotel just a block and a half from ...

    For me, Yelp is a lot about meeting people, having good conversations, and making new friends. And so it was the case last night as Rene C. and I met for drinks before the Gogobot Launch Event. We talked about family, our work, other Yelpers, and subsequently agreed to meeting for dinner soon with our wives. As for Tunnel Top, ...

    This place gets five stars for atmosphere alone. Plush and lush, you'll think you've stepped back into the '50s, in this restaurant and lounge tucked high atop the Sir Frances Drake Hotel in downtown SF. It's not cheap, of course, but the views - featuring amazing bird's eye views of Powell Street, Union Square, the Bay Bridge and beyond - ...
