This spring we announced the reopening of The Clift Royal Sonesta Hotel San Francisco, and just last week, on July 1, the legendary Redwood Room reopened in the hotel.

The Redwood Room can be found just through the lobby of The Clift, and has been at the center of the San Francisco social scene since it opened on the day after Prohibition was repealed.

Enjoy a warm ambiance created by walls paneled from the wood of a single redwood tree while sipping on signature craft cocktails and sharing gourmet small plates.

If you aren’t able to visit San Francisco to sample some of the Redwood Room favorites, we invite you to make some classic #liquidart at home.

Watch this video to learn how to mix up โ€œThe Big Chairโ€, an Old Fashioned made with Redwood Room Select Woodford Reserve Double Oaked Bourbon, Sugar, Angostura Bitters, and an Orange Twist.

Stay tuned for more exciting dining news from The Clift, as in late July this San Francisco landmark will usher in the grand opening of Fredericks, their exciting new restaurant concept with both sit-down and -counter service options.
