San Francisco
4. Kaiyō Rooftop

KAIYŌ Rooftop, on the top of the Hyatt Place Hotel in SOMA, was an important new entry in San Francisco’s rooftop canon when it opened this winter. In addition to being a showcase for chef Alex Reccio’s distinctive blend of Peruvian Nikkei cuisine, which marries Peruvian flavors with Japanese technique, it's got some seriously stunning views—you can scope downtown San Francisco, the Bay Bridge, and Treasure Island while sipping your Suntory highball. The 3,300-square-foot space is lush with plants that offset the gorgeous, jade green tiled bar and is half a block away from Oracle Park, making it a necessary pre- or post-Giants game destination.

6. Zeitgeist

This iconic beer garden has long been a destination for sunny days and bundled up nights. The menu features standard pub grub with burgers, sandwiches, and wings, and you’ll catch free live music on Wednesdays and Sundays. Pair whatever you order with one of 20+ beers on tap, a cocktail, or Zeitgeist’s famous Bloody. Hours vary, but the bar is once again open until 1 am on Fridays and Saturdays.
How to book: Walk-ins available on a first come, first served basis.
