Drinks with Clients

Redwood Room Opened the day after Prohibition ended on 5 December 1933, the grand Redwood Room preserves its namesake timber panelling, all of it cut from the identical 2000-year-old tree, but the playful Philippe Starck touches, such as Art Deco-style sconces, and a rotating installation of digital artwork add 21st-century sophistication. Locally inspired cocktails, including Afternoon in Humboldt (with house-infused rosemary tequila, lime juice and grapefruit soda) and Haight Street Daiquiri (with chamomile-infused rum and lime juice) join classics like Old Fashioned and Negroni. Book a quiet table for a tête-à-tête, preferably in time for the happy hour menu of pizza, wings or hushpuppies (corn fritters) that lasts until 7pm. 495 Geary Street
