This place is awesome. Located down an alley in the financial district, you’ll miss the inconspicuous entrance unless you’re looking for it. Once you step inside you are in a place with a classic feel a ton of character. Chilled glasses and bottles of champagne...More

If Jay Gatsby were in San Francisco, trying to romance Daisy Buchanan, then he probably could be found in this uniquely seductive spot, tucked halfway down a gloomy alley near the Financial District. Hard to describe, the soaring room exudes glamour (despite some tattily attired...More

There is no place like Bix. It is both an old classic and a novel experience. From the room length double story bar, to the live jazz ensemble, to the classic old comfortable American fare cooked to perfection, Bix never disappoints. It is our go-to...More

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.

No dress code, but I expect to dress classy casual. I also may dress in coat and tie. For women, smart attire is good, and not "low" casual.
