Ascend 21 floors to Lizzie’s Starlight, our newly reimagined bar and lounge that nods to Queen Elizabeth I's (alleged) dalliance with Sir Francis Drake, and you may feel as though you’re entering an entirely new reality. Gorgeous views of the city complement a menu of indulgent shareable plates like caviar cannoli and a trio of tartares, as well as inventive cocktails inspired by Drake’s globe-trotting adventures. An ever-changing collection of master DJs and musicians enthrall guests and locals alike. You’ll find the atmosphere in this sumptuous space is one of mystique, magic and opulence with a wink.

Flock to Scala's for rustic Italian cuisine with a California twist, set to the vibe of a Paris bistro. Whether you indulge in pesto-and-ricotta ravioli, sage-roasted chicken, or a perfect ribeye (or one of each!), you'll delight in the fresh, local ingredients, prepared with Chef Justin Deering's European flair. Sip a signature cocktail like "Boys in the Yard," a grown-up milkshake made with vanilla gelato, fresh strawberries, and bourbon. Staying in for the night? Order from Scala's through in-room dining and enjoy your fritto misto from the cozy haven of your San Francisco hideaway.
