About
ust through the lobby of The Clift Royal Sonesta Hotel is the famed Redwood Room. This intimate yet expansive bar has been at the center of the San Francisco social scene since it opened on the day after Prohibition was repealed. Luxuriate in the warmth from walls paneled from the wood of a single redwood tree. In addition to exquisite and artisanal cocktails you will find top shelf liquors, wines, beers, and gourmet small plates, some of which incorporate honey from the hotel’s rooftop bee sanctuary.

Hotel Bar Space with Ambiance for Tourists and Locals
Apr 2019
I had a contact who invited me to visit the Redwood Room in SF. It's part of the Clift Hotel and it's a fascinating space. The interior is so grand and amazing. The lighting and furniture are awesome. It's a nice place, so dress decently, but you don't have to be too formal. You can have a drink. Friend got wine. They have a DJ playing and a space, but don't expect too much from the DJ. It's fun to take an adventure to the classy Redwood Room at the Clift Hotel. I had not been to this spot without contact's recommendation. It's for travelers. It's a bit sordid, but you can keep to yourself.

Great for drinks
Apr 2019
Iconic bar – dark inside with a great, spooky feeling –l ook at the pictures on the wall you think they are watching you. We went for the happy hour and had a couple of drinks on our first night in San Fran – we also had bar nibbles, which were delicious and huge portions we ordered two fries and two chips between 3 – well one each would have been enough.

Great for late drinks

An interesting atmosphere. The pictures are worth a second look! Great cocktails but this is high end and not cheap. Comfortable seating. No food or snacks that I know of, been there several times over the years. An iconic bar in San Francisco...add it to your list.

Very trendy elegant but fun bar in the center of town. The art deco setting is amazing in this old remodeled room with high ceilings. Great DJ made this a great night.

Beautiful Bar and Decor, Good Service
Aug 2018 • Solo
Stopped in for a drink to check out the bar that I had not been in 40-50 years. My first visit in the "old" days, I was denied entry because I did not have a coat and tie on. Still Old San Francisco ambiance, a very pleasant bar for a drink. Surprised the Martini (Gordon's Gin) a very reasonable price for San Francisco. Probably still a dress code, but not having on a coat and tie seems to be gone. The lighting fixtures and walls appear to be original. Furniture has been changed. Study up on the history of the room, the designers and decorators before visiting. Most likely parking, but expect it to be expensive. Good location, close to many of the hotels. Check hours of operation--I think it opened at 5:00 PM when I was there.

Fantastic Bar
Aug 2018 • Couples
Stopped in here after a bus tour for a quick drink before dinner. It was lovely to sit down in this beautiful room and be looked after by the wait staff. The cocktails and bar snacks were delicious. Very interesting art work on the walls which brought Harry Potter to mind. Highly recommend a visit if you are in the vicinity.

Cool bar

Stopped in for drink. In the Clifts hotel. Entire bar room paneled in redwood from one tree. High ceilings subdued lighting, upbeat music. Loved the atmosphere. Drinks were good but just had Manhattans. Homemade chips really good.
