Listen up baseball fans, SoMa dwellers, and cocktail connoisseurs: Hotel Via is now serving tipples and grub at Bar Via and The Rooftop at Via, which has cabanas and killer views (and space heaters).
The new hotel is a baseball's throw from AT&T Park and is primed for pre- and post-game partying at two new venues. The action will be upstairs at The Rooftop, where reservable cabanas (exclusive to hotel guests and private events) and 360-degree vistas of the San Francisco skyline promise a full house when the weather's nice. If a staycation at the hotel isn't in the budget (rooms start at $279/night on weekends), you can still grab the same menu of cool cocktails and light California fare, as well as stadium-inspired eats on game days, at sister venue Bar Via around the corner.
The cocktail menu is an ode to SF. From left: The Twin Peaks cocktail employs activated charcoal for a rich inky hue; the Lombard Street (Tanqueray, yuzu, seltzer, and raspberry syrup) has a dash of dill to cut the sweetness.
