Perched five floors above the streets of San Francisco's bustling SOMA district, Dirty Habit is an intimate hideaway for those seeking an inventive and sociable drinking and dining atmosphere. Helmed by Chef David Bazirgan and Bar Manager Brian Means, this bar-centric concept plays host to sharea...
To find this hidden oasis, you’ll need to walk into Hotel Zelos and take the elevator to the fifth floor. There, you’ll walk through the dark and dramatic inside dining area to the fully-heated patio, where you will choose between a table (best for a complete meal) or a cozy couch in the lounge area (ideal for drinks and snacks). Like some other rooftop spots on this list, Dirty Habit is technically on a roof but is surrounded by taller buildings, so it’s not about the views but rather about being outside beneath the (hopefully) blue sky enjoying the fresh air. The cocktail list is a mix of exotic and classic drinks with a couple of boilermaker options for when that seems like a good idea, which, lately, is often. The food menu is predominately “snackable” dishes to share, like oysters, thick-cut fries, and caviar, but there are also heartier dishes if you’re looking for a full meal. Whichever way you go, just don’t skip the chicken wings. Trust us.
Enjoy a completely private dining experience at Hotel Zelos’ “Holiday Habit” dinner. You’ll enjoy the meal in a guestroom decked with holiday decor so that it can be as intimate (or as raucous, we suppose) as you’d like. The experience is suitable for up to six guests, and the four-course prix fixe menu ($99 per person with optional $50 wine pairing) includes options like a sturgeon caviar bao bun, crisp Dungeness crab roll, sweet potato gnocchi, dry-aged ribeye, and a salted caramel chocolate tart. Can’t make it on Christmas Day? The dinner is available every day through New Year’s Eve.
