Went to see the fabled view at the top of the Mark. We were lucky as the skyline was totally clear. The price of the view was cocktails all round. The cocktails themselves were fine but they were fairly knocking them out on the day....More

The main benefit of a bar at the top of a tall building on the top of a big hill should be the view. Unless you're in San Francisco, a city renowned for its fog. The drinks are expensive and the fog drew in pretty...More

The decor was dated 10 years ago. But don't let that put you off. Great "Tapas" expensive but good. Excellent cocktails. And a fine place to sip a drink, cuddle your loved one and take in a view of the bay. Nice.

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
