The View is a lounge at the 39th story atop the Marriott Hotel in the SOMA (South of Market) district of San Francisco. The View offers a panoramic view of San Francisco. The place has two big rooms; a full bar and a view of the City Hall and Twin Peaks on one, and a piano for the live jazz/blues music and a view of the Bay Bridge on the other. Both rooms have big jukebox-shaped floor-to-ceiling windows that cover the entire room.

There are two elevators at the lobby so be sure to catch the high-rise elevator to the top floor. The place can be very loud at times with the live band but the deem atmosphere makes this place a must visit for couple. It offers cocktails and light snacks. Drinks are decent and pricey but you don’t come here for the drinks. Any tables by the window is a nice. It’s dark and romantic.

There is one spot that I think is the best in house. It’s in the room where the piano is. If you walk towards the elevator/bathroom, it’s on the far end before you make a turn toward the elevator. It’s tucked in a partially hidden triangular corner. Believe me, you will not want to leave if you get that spot especially if you are out on a date.
