We came up for the view and a drink. I would say the view was worth the price of two drinks. Not sure if the people in the hotel across the way realize you can look right into their room, otherwise they would have closed...More

We stayed at the Sir Francis Drake, so naturally our last stop of the night was The Starlight Room. Amazing views, good drinks, sweet jams, and impeccable service from Robert, made this a night to remember. I will definitely come back for the Drag Brunch!...More

I was surprised that average age of this club seemed to be in the 30's; I expected an older crowd. In typical SF fashion, drinks are expensive. Great views of the city, and the DJ kept people on the dancefloor.
