Hilton San Francisco Union Square opens Cityscape San Francisco Lounge, located on the hotel’s 46th floor. Open to the public on September 12, the viewing lounge will welcome guests from 5:00 p.m. to midnight every day of the week.
Featuring breathtaking, 360-degree panoramic views of the entire Bay Area and San Francisco’s most iconic landmarks, the Cityscape lounge offers small plates and appetizers, signature cocktails, wines by the glass, a variety of beers on tap, fine spirits and the best, most coveted viewing platform in the city.
Designed as one of the top “must see” attractions in San Francisco, Cityscape is the quintessential destination for those that want to experience the city’s most dynamic views and enjoy the “lay of the land” as guests are treated to sights that can only be seen from the vantage point of the Hilton San Francisco Union Square’s tower one.
“No two days look the same from Cityscape, where San Francisco weather flows over the ever changing skyline,” said Lenny Gumm, general manager, Cityscape. “What doesn’t change are the 360-degree views enjoyed through 14-foot floor-to-ceiling windows and the great food and drinks to enjoy with them.”
Lenny Gumm is a veteran bar and lounge manager in which he’s held positions with several local watering holes, including Hotel Rex, One Market Restaurant, Temple Nightclub, DOSA Restaurant, La Urbana and the Four Seasons. His goal has been to learn as much as possible about spirits and cocktails, and to focus on providing genuine hospitality. While Bar Manager at DOSA, he partnered with Old World Spirits to create a one-of-a-kind signature gin produced solely for the restaurant. Lenny has also participated in local events with CUESA, SF Chefs, 7×7, and San Francisco Magazine.
In addition to general public access for individuals, couples and small parties, Cityscape also offers private corners of the lounge for groups of 20 in the Bay Section with stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge as well as the entire space for up to 350 guests for a total buy out of the lounge. Special menus will be arranged and groups will enjoy the exclusivity of their own reserved space and VIP service.
