Mandarin Oriental San Francisco Looks to Woo Happy-Hour Crowd

After attracting the city’s rising young affluent community, flush with coin from the area’s new media industries, the Mandarin Oriental San Francisco recently completed a redesign of its Brasserie S&P restaurant and bar (named after the hotel’s Sansome and Pine street location). On June 14, the Brasserie showed off one of the country’s largest gin collections, offering tasting flights and basil-and-lime-flavored ice pops. A new 8,000-sq.-ft. spa and fitness center targets the youth-minded with a “California Dreaming” treatment ($415), blending mineral salts from the Pacific Ocean, California avocado and grapeseed oils (see the new couple’s suite below).

Eat: The Liberty Farms duck liver pate with red onion marmalade and grilled levain, a standout from Brasserie S&P’s executive chef Adam Mali.

Drink: Spring Hike on Mt. Tam cocktail featuring St. George Terroir Gin, sensei mandarin and rosemary tonic, a signature of the hotel’s Gin & Tonic Project (see the gin flight below) inside the Brasserie S&P. The restaurant’s bar boasts having one of the country’s largest gin collections — certainly of any bar in San Francisco.

Stay: Located on the top 11 floors of San Francisco’s third-tallest building, 345 California Center, the hotel’s 158 rooms feature beds raised to offer a better look at the bay through panoramic windows, offering arguably the best views of any hotel in the city (see large image above).
