This bar in the Clift Hotel was established in 1934, and its class has definitely remained. Shell out a bit of dough for some well-made cocktails from its list of unique combinations, and you won't regret a single penny.



  • look at the paintings on the wall. they are actually videos and they move very slowly. some only blink. i love it.
  • Ask your server about the artist and inspiration behind the portrait installation. Hmmm who is cheating on who...
  • When you want to prove to your lady that you're a man, and not just a guy, this is the place to grab a low-slung couch and enjoy the good life.
  • Two words: Lychee Martinii
  • Order the Redwood Rm Martini, perfect combination of Blue Cheese olives w/ vodka.
  • Go out into the hotel lobby and lie down under that big chair. Then look up I swear it's not just a bunch of boogers.
  • Feels like your at hogwarts house music partay.
  • Bring a flashlight!
  • ...enjoy this upscale elegant bar. Awesome interior with ever-changing digital artwork displayed on various screens! Classy atmosphere... let's not forget some of the finest cocktails in the city!
  • perfect!!!
  • The perfect post-Inman Real Estate Connect decompression chamber. Great spot for appetizers and drinks just around the corner from the Hilton.
  • Nice place
  • REDRUM (sorry, I had to)
  • This was my favorite bar during my vacation in SF. Good-looking drinks, good-looking people and superb staff, esp. Jackie and Mike. The atmosphere is classy but still nicely cozy, plus cool interiors!
  • Fireplace in the front lobby.
  • Best blue cheese olives. No beers on draft though.
  • Great place to grab a drink on a week night because there's always interesting people having drinks. From travelers staying at the Clift Hotel to locals downtown.
  • Lychee Martinii (y)
  • Hungry? Take a peek at our Velvet Room menu. You can order at the bar.
  • I'm guessing this place is better on a weeknight. Beautiful setting, but d-bag central. Good manhattans, though.
