San Francisco remains a measure by which America determines what is hip today. Charmaine’s happens to be the new kid on the block, the trendy spot where techies, corporate and ultra cool crowds gather for before and after dinner drinks. The view has more than a little somethin’ somethin’ to do with its often standing room only popularity. For days when the drizzle makes it impossible to admire the skyscraper backdrop and the rooftop fire pits don’t throw enough heat to remove bone chill, the interior is also trendsetting and jets setting worthy. A two room combination of bright, modern colors, snazzy Art Deco meets mid-century furnishings, and a tasteful, streamlined bar with capable, friendly drink slingers create an environment for relaxing and socializing that will clearly be fashionable for years to come. Located in the Trendy Proper Hotel, get there early if outdoor seating around a personal fire pit is your idea of the perfect SF evening.
