Definitely one of the best (and most expensive) bars in the city. The view of the bridge at night is incredible. The food is mediocre... But that's not why you go to The View.

Best bar to enjoy sunset view of San Francisco. Probably the only place I can justify spending expensive drinks on.

If you’re visiting San Fran one place you don’t want to miss is The View Lounge. Located on the top floor of the Marriott Hotels Marquis, this joint has a sexy vibe with some awesome craft cocktails and the most amazing 360 degree views of San Francisco. The best time to go is in the early evening before sunset but expect a big crowd and getting a spot may be a little challenging as it’s mostly self-seating and extremely popular spot. Once you’re there, you’ll see why…#breathtaking

Pricey food and drinks and unfortunately when its peak hours you can't even get a nice view of the city. At least there is no cover, but come early. Our group of 6 got lucky with booth seating, but otherwise it would have been a pretty bad time for all of us to be standing around for a couple hours.

Great place for happy hour after work. Food small bites and good drinks. This place is very popular so it could get very crowded.

This place is on the top floor of the Marriott Hotel, located near the Metreon theater and Target. There's a (possibly the cheapest) public parking lot nearby as well. You can see an amazing view of San Francisco while you grab some drinks and finger foods. Come early to make sure you can grab a table with unobstructed views.

The view here is definitely the reason patrons come here. The drinks are pricey, but the bar is quiet and has a classy sophistication to it. It's a nice place to meet up with someone you haven't seen in long time to catch up.

As the name suggests, this is a view foremost, a bar as an afterthought. As a result, the drinks aren't good. The view makes up for it though, it really does. Just get in the Marriott elevator and head to the top. Can't miss it.

come for the view and not for the drinks or bar food. expect higher prices and people intruding into your space especially if you have a window seat. place gets super popular around sunset times. come early to nab a seat or just hope you're extra lucky.

Cool rooftop bar with amazing view over the city (well if you are lucky and there is no fog).
The place is little touristy and you can't make reservations, but it's not that bad and worth coming and waiting shortly for a table.
Their cocktails are good, the food is also not bad and the service is good and fast.

Beautiful panoramic view of the city and bay. The window tables fill up as soon as it opens so get their close to 4 for the best seats. High end cocktail and small plates menu.

Amazing view of San Francisco - a hidden gem tucked away at the top of the marriot marquis downtown. Definitely a must see for locals and tourists alike.

Come for the amazing views!!

Decently priced happy hour... otherwise, the drinks are really expensive. Plan on just buying one so you don't break the bank but try to find a spot to enjoy the views!

The iconic View Lounge atop the Marriott Marquis is the ideal destination for business and leisure guests. Hand crafted cocktails and small plates accompanied by the most awe inspiring views the city has to offer. You can see the Sutro Tower, the Yerba Buena Gardens, AT&T Park, the Bay Bridge & more.. plus, I had no cover when I came in. Shocking!

If you want to drink a cocktail with a nice view from the 39th floor, this Marriott bar will get the job done. The old fashioned is worth ordering.

Awesome bar located on the 39th floor of the Marriott Marquis. From their windows, a panoramic span of Downtown SF, which includes the Bay Bridge and AT&T Park, is a sight to enjoy while taking in a few libations. Speaking of the latter, the Old Fashioned and The Elevation are pretty darn tasty.

This is the best view of SF I have seen. The drinks were a little pricey and there is no happy hour available. The place was a little busy, I would suggest sitting at the bar if you are looking for fast service. Still the view makes it worth heading up to the 39th floor on the Marriott Marquis.
