The City

SAN FRANCISCO

Known for its unique mix of eclectic architecture, progressive attitudes and contemporary lifestyle, San Francisco is increasingly being recognised as one of the hottest creative hubs in the world. With its cool summer, steep rolling hills and often fog inhabited bays, San Francisco is effortlessly attractive in true Californian fashion.

Sleeping

THE ARGONAUT

Located on the popular Fisherman's Wharf, The Argonaut is a luxury boutique hotel which is as iconic as its greek legend namesake. Making its home inside a beautifully renovated 20th century warehouse, the hotel boasts nautical inspired interiors, charming exposed brick walls and spacious accommodation. Little details like a yoga mat in every room, and its close proximity to public attractions, cable cars and of course the ferry to Alcatraz Island, make it the perfect homely base from which to explore this vibrant Californian city.

Eating

TOSCA CAFÉ

On the outskirts of the Financial District, down the road from a classic Californian saloon is Tosca Café. True to chef April Bloomfield's character, the exterior of the restaurant is wholly unassuming. Her rustic approach to the restaurant's aesthetic and menu makes Tosca a comfortable place to be absolutely wowed by each and every dish. Don’t miss out on the San Francisco Petrale Sole – a delicate fish dish and recent mouthwatering addition to the menu. A favourite spot amongst industry insiders, to say satisfaction is guaranteed would be a huge understatement.
