YELP, INC. HEADQUARTERS
140 New Montgomery was once the the headquarters of the Pacific Bell Telephone Company, and where Winston Churchill made the first trans-Atlantic telephone call to his wife in 1929. Much has changed since then, including so much rebar and concrete that it’s said to be one of the safest places to be in an earthquake.
Yelp is the building’s main tenant. Workspaces feature open layouts and cozy nooks to foster a culture of collaboration between colleagues. There are fully stocked kitchens on every floor, a community meeting space with a full-service coffee bar, games, the beloved Yelp KegMate, and audio-visual technology in meeting rooms to connect San Francisco-based employees with remote colleagues worldwide.
INTERCONTINENTAL SAN FRANCISCO
32 stories above the vibrant South of Market neighborhood, the InterContinental San Francisco Hotel is among the city's most admired landmarks. Close to Union Square, premium shopping areas, a diverse collection of restaurants and bars, and a number of major tourist attractions, it’s a perfect home base for visitors to the area.
The hotel is known to be President Obama’s hotel of choice for visits to The City By The Bay.
Join us for an optional reception Monday night at the Keeper's Share; the whiskey barrel bar located downstairs at Rickhouse.
Rickhouse believes a city like San Francisco, steeped in cocktail culture, is entitled to great libations. It's why they strive to provide superior swilling experiences. Whether you prefer artisan cocktails, fine spirits, local beers, or boutique wines from throughout California, there are lots of liquids to explore — and Monday night we're buying!
If you're in town, come visit us 6–8pm and toast Coast-To-Coast 2016.
STANDARD DEVIANT BREWING
Join us for a community dinner following Tuesday’s program at Standard Deviant Brewing featuring sumptuous barbecue by City Smoke House.
Standard Deviant Brewing began operations in the summer of 2016. Their focus is on great beer and great community and they work hard to produce high quality, drinkable, delicious craft beers that combine traditional recipes with subtle twists. Their taproom features a wide open space, giant roll-up door, sky lights, and picnic tables.
Standard Deviant Brewing is currently on tap in 30 establishments in San Francisco and growing each week. The business, beer, and community vibe are the creation of the distinct and complementary backgrounds of their three owners: Paul Duatschek, Mark DeVito and Dave Azzam. You can find all three of them behind the bar on any given weekend, slinging beers and good fortune.
Join us for a cocktail reception following Wednesday’s program at Monroe featuring heavy hors d'oeuvres by Off the Grid.
Monroe is conveniently located in the heart of North Beach, one of San Francisco’s most historic neighborhoods. Back in the 60’s the building was home to the legendary Jazz Workshop where greats like Miles Davis, James Moody, John Coltrane, and other legends performed. In October 1961 counterculture icon Lenny Bruce was infamously arrested by the San Francisco Police Department for using lewd remarks during a performance there. Today Monroe maintains an energy and sophistication of eras past and it’s home to some of the city’s most popular evening entertainment.
With a long-standing history as a symbol of LGBT activism around the world, the Castro contains a variety of noteworthy restaurants, clubs, bars, and an original 1922 movie palace, making it a prime spot for fostering a vibrant community as well as an active nightlife.
San Francisco’s Chinatown is the oldest Chinatown in North America as well as the largest Chinese community aside from Asia. The streets of SF Chinatown are overflowing with an array of markets, tourist attractions, traditional Chinese bakeries, and restaurants.
Downtown San Francisco & SOMA
This upbeat portion of San Francisco has a high concentration of department stores, clubs, bars, and office buildings — all within walking distance.
This small corner of the city only spans about six blocks but is a neat little gem for Japanese cuisine and culture. Japantown also stands as a pitstop along the 49-Mile Scenic Drive road tour of San Francisco.
The Mission, at the heart of the city, has been home to varied world cultures as well as artists and bohemians for decades. The neighborhood’s two Bart stations give it a transportational edge while the sun seems to shine just a bit more, perhaps part of the reason for a recent influx of cupcakeries, hipster watering holes, and boutiques in addition to the taquerias and independent bookstores of yore.
Commonly referred to as Little Italy, this neighborhood is filled with Italian cafes, restaurants, and shops. It is also home to the historical landmark, City Lights Bookstore and Jack Kerouac Alley, so named for the famed beatnik presence in the area in the 1950s.
Stationed atop Telegraph Hill, Coit Tower offers a stunning panoramic view spanning across the city and beyond, with sights as far as Angel Island, Alcatraz, and both the Golden Gate and Bay Bridge. What do you think it looks like?
Arguably one of San Francisco’s most popular tourist attractions, Fisherman’s Wharf encompasses the long stretch containing Pier 39, Ghirardelli Square, and San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park. Sunbathing sea lions are a main attraction as well as a bevvy of clam chowder purveyors.
The Painted Ladies
Located right across the street from Alamo Square Park, these iconic Victorian-style houses have become a Bay Area staple. San Francisco’s Painted Ladies have been popularized and featured through a variety of media outlets, including 90’s sitcom Full House.
Palace of Fine Arts
The Palace of Fine Arts Theatre is a beautiful display of architecture that was built in 1915 when San Francisco hosted the Panama-Pacific Exposition — just nine years after the city’s most famous earthquake. The area is a gorgeous venue to stroll through both in the day and night time.
Perched immediately adjacent to the Land’s End trail, what was once the world’s largest indoor swimming complex now stands in ruins as a landmark and outdoor attraction. The Sutro Baths are now a popular hangout and hiking spot. See if you can find the secret cave!
In addition to being the second highest point in San Francisco, Twin Peaks is also located near the geographic center of the city, making it an excellent spot to catch one of San Francisco’s most breathtaking views!
