Why locals recommend it
El Techo is a San Francisco rarity: a rooftop bar. I love coming here for chips, guacamole, and a pitcher of margaritas. You also get amazing views of the city, which is always a plus. There are lots of communal high tops, so it’s great for groups. The kitchen serves till 11 on Fridays and Saturdays. Choose a bunch of plates to share with the table since they’re small portions.

Go for the view of course. Try to be there before everyone else. There's often a line on the sidewalk to get in.

One of the few places in San Francisco with a rooftop outdoor bar! Serves Mexican fare and strong drinks! Also serves a great weekend brunch. Be prepared to wait in line.

New American Restaurant
“Californian-Mediterranean fare (& a popular brunch) in an outdoor space screening films. High-end and pricey, but delicious and very popular. Reservations are a must. ”

Park
“When the weather is nice, you can barely see the grass due to the throngs of people lounging around. Luckily, the park was recently renovated and is big enough that you're bound to find a spot you like. The southwest corner is good for a panoramic view of the city skyline (and usually far enough away from the folks enjoying their herbal refreshments on the northern slope). There's also a nice kid's playground, although it's geared more towards older kids.”
