New Hotel in SoMa Touting Top Chef, Rooftop Bar

San Francisco has its share of panoramic rooftop views along with mixologist drinks, and it doesn’t hurt to add another one at the soon-to-open Virgin Hotel with 194 rooms in SoMa, at 250 Fourth Street. Called The Rooftop Bar, it looks like a fun place to check out. However, the real news here is that the hotel’s Common Club restaurant is bringing in chef Adrian Garcia to craft and produce a menu with global food poetics.

A Virgin Hotels article about Garcia’s fare speaks of hyper-local California ingredients used in wide-ranging shared eats. Garcia came to SF in 2012, having won plaudits down in San Diego at the award winning Addison. After coming to SF he honed his skills at Benu and Quince Restaurant, each with 3 Michelin stars.

A nightly free happy hour is one of the guest perks, plus exclusive dining options at the Commons Club. Virgin Hotel is already taking booking for dates starting November 15th.
