Jun 11, 2012 — Some of the best restaurants in the world call San Francisco home, so high-end dining is a huge part of the nightlife, supported by a well-to-do population of Internet millionaires and venture capitalists ready to splurge on the latest culinary feats.
After a to-die-for meal, it’s off to SoMa, where modern lofts compete with chic clubs for converted warehouse space, or to Union Square, where an endless assortment of hot lounges and hotel bars like the Redwood Room give you plenty of reason to show off your Christian Lacroix.
The dance scene is limited, but the city makes up for it in shopping, and the only thing better than hitting the high-end stores Downtown is stopping in for a fabulous brunch at the Palace Hotel – or maybe whisking off to the famed Napa vineyards for the day.
Getting around town is easy given its size – and walking up those famous hills gives you the kind of buns that usually require surgery – so not long after you’ve felt the burn passing picturesque mansions in Pacific Heights, you’ll find yourself in The Marina. Once there, chichi salons, cute boutiques, and dapper men all fight for your attention amid the yachts bobbing in the bay.
