We went here at night and the view was unimpressive. Besides the view, this place really has nothing to offer. It looks very dated, the staff is uninterested and what is probably the patrons from the glory days are shuffling around unkempt with their walkers....More

Yes, they are a bit pricey, but the cocktails were great. They have a 12 Days of Christmas cocktail menu right now, good prices and a little glass ornament as a present. The views cannot be beat, especially on a clear evening. Worth a stop...More

The top of the mark offers stunning views of San Francisco, of course it is weather dependent on what you will actually see. The cocktails are great although a little pricey (I guess you are paying for the ambience as well) The staff are very...More

Great views, great service, but the price of the drinks are a bit steep, even for San Francisco. The elevator to the Top of the Mark doesn’t open until 4pm. Dress code is casual smart, and if you arrive early enough you can get a...More

We were visiting SF and had seen Top of the Mark featured on a TV programme in the UK. We arrived just as it opened for the evening (late afternoon) and were given a window seat. The drinks were a little more expensive than we’d...More

What a great place to see the whole city! Good drinks could be better with top shelf vodka, i.e. Stoli Elit :)

This was a highly recommended lounge for the view. Unfortunately, Karl came rolling in and we saw nothing. Of course, this isn't the fault of Top of the Mark. This is an average bar, the service was good but the decor was a bit tired.

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

Average is probably about 1$12-$16 for a drink. No cover charge. There is also food to purchase. Go to website top of the mark and look at menu. Enjoy!

We were staying at the hotel so we did not have a cover charge, but there did seem to be a cover charge for non hotel guest.
