There may be a bit of stair climbing involved, but the views from the hilltop park are some of the best in the city. To the South: a bowl of neighborhoods leads up to Sutro Tower on the horizon. To the North: a view of the Marina opens up to the Bay beyond.

The booths are the best way to enjoy Elite’s California Cajun cuisine. They’re only remaining element of the original space built in 1922, and they offer a unique amount of privacy and charm. Don’t miss the deviled eggs and gunpowder martinis.

6. The Dry Bar

Want salon-grade hair without the cut? The Dry Bar specializes in blowouts only, and caters to locals and visitors alike. Its menu includes weekend-ready styles like the Mai Tai (loose curls billed as “messy, beachy hair”) and the Straight Up (sleek with a touch of body). Tip: Friday and Weekend appointments are often snapped up a week out.
