A 360 degree view of the city. Make sure to go on a clear day. Arrive before 6:30 so you don't have to pay a cover charge. Live music which was very enjoyable. Extensive bar. Only had drinks and chips but really enjoyed our stop.

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
