Favored for its lavish interior design, the Redwood Room pays homage to California’s natural beauty – the massive redwood trees that tower over the region. Inside Clift Hotel, the decor includes original redwood paneling, said to have been carved from a single tree. The sophisticated setting also features a large, etched-glass bar and furniture designed by Philippe Starck. Stay for dinner, dessert or lighter fare, but make sure to try one of the cocktails. There’s a Redwood Room Martini that’s perfect for sipping in the bar’s famously oversized chair. On the weekends, head here for live music from native San Francisco DJs and other artists.
