This is a beautiful spot to enjoy a drink, a very nice ambiance. The drinks are a bit pricey, but worth a nice evening!

Awesome décor and ambience. Friendly, attentive and competent bar staff. Prices are not bad considering this is San Fransisco AND a hotel bar. I was there during Dreamforce week, which I guess may explain the rather stiff crowd of guests.

Walls completely covered with Redwood paneling - all from the same tree. Art Deco decor and dimly lit original chandelier hint to its glitzy past. Bar tender was friendly and willing to share his knowledge about the bars history. Although my visit was brief, a fellow patron of the bar alluded to its popularity in the evening, so get there...

So the service is friendly. Mostly attentive. But I had, perhaps the worst two martinis I've ever had. We were staying at the hotel so this was our watering hole. I tried a martini on our first night of the stay and it was horrendous. Stale olive juice or something. Whatever it was the martini was tasteless and borderline warm.... More

My husband and I popped to the Redwood Room for a pre-dinner cocktail on a recommendation from a friend. The cocktails were delicious and well made. Definitely quality over quantity in this place! So the cocktail menu wasn't extensive. Modern and well presented interior, it was perfect for a pre-dinner drink, at $15 per cocktail, best for quiet more intimate... More

Great experience at the Redwood room. Nice relaxed atmosphere, mostly established crowd in 30-40's. Drinks were delicious, try the ones with rooftop honey, only downside is cost. dropped 100. for a few drinks. Enjoyed the experience here.

Weekend nights are $325 minimum for a table. We just wanted a couple cocktails after dinner. They did politely offer the lounge area near the checkin area (inside Clift Hotel) and we were served superbly by the waitress. Cocktails & service were good and worth the stop; minimum fee for a couple - not so much. We will say, hostess... More

Went to the Clift Hotel for drinks one evening after dinner with a friend. The room is a great space, but unfortunately it was packed with the nouveau richer Silicon Valley jerks who spent most of the time posing. The room was crowded and all of the areas for seating is reserved for people who pay outrageous prices for bottle... More
