Perhaps the best known wine bar in a city full of them, Press Club is an elegant establishment at the foot of the swanky Four Seasons Hotel that showcases a new artisan vintner each month along with a sublime selection of local vinos. It’s notoriously difficult to stay in business in this competitive city—so it says something that Elixir dates back to 1858. And with its wonderful collection of handmade cocktails and laid-back saloon-meets-lounge ambience, you can bet it won’t be going anywhere anytime soon. As the name suggests,
Brewcade is part brewpub and part arcade, with a collection of nostalgic games including Mario Bros., Frogger and Mortal Kombat. Go old school and order a classic soda pop like Crush Orange.
The gorgeous Lands End trail winding along the rocky, windswept, cypress-lined Pacific Coast leads to striking views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the ocean. The beautiful Lands End Lookout visitor center at the entrance offers context on the area's natural and cultural history and houses a gift shop, cafe and restrooms. San Franciscans flock north to Marin to hike, cycle, camp and horseback ride on 2,572 foot-high Mount Tamalpais. The park connects to a 200-mile trail system, and the views from the summit are spectacular. Rent a bike and cycle from San Francisco over the Golden Gate Bridge to the charming seaside town of Sausalito, where you can enjoy lunch and ice cream. Most touring cyclists opt to take the ferry back to the city.
The cycling workout that’s taken the nation by storm, Flywheel Sports, has finally arrived to San Francisco, with a plush new studio just off Market Street near the Embarcadero. The high-tech bikes have personal screens tracking how hard and fast you’re actually pedaling. The Nob Hill Spa now offers the Rejuvenate Body & Face Ritual that incorporates superfoods. A chia seed scrub hydrates with omega-3 fatty acids, and a matcha tea-infused body cream eases inflammation with catechin antioxidants. A hub for personal care, Union Street recently welcomed newcomer Skinworx, a sleek orange boutique with its own skincare line and spa, which specializes in digital skin analysis and Hydrafacials.
