Top of the Mark

I knew when the BF came home for a weekend in August, I had to scratch something off my to-do list. That would be visiting the Top of the Mark finally! Its located on the top floor in the Intercontinental Mark Hopkins Hotel and is located in Nob Hill.  Its the tallest building downtown and has amazing views of the city. Its known for its extensive (over 100!) list of martinis and its spectacular views. It was opened in 1939 and has seen many people come through its doors to admire its 360 degree view of San Francisco. According to Wikipedia, During World War II, when San Francisco was a major transit point for soldiers traveling to the Pacific, this was a popular site for soldiers to have a farewell drink before shipping out.

It was cloudy the day we went, but this is from another sunny day in the Bay.

Its a historical landmark!

Beautiful columns

Just another cloudy August day in the Bay.
