Stop up here at the top of the Sir Francis drake for a great view of the city at night. Cheesy dance floor but good bar, and fun.

outdated decor, waitresses with horrible outfits, with runs in their stockings. The only positive is that it has a great view.

Great views, nice service and fab entertainment. A great place to relax at the end of the day. Cocktails and wine a little pricey but look where you are.
