The Redwood Room Bar
Legendary San Francisco nightclub in the Clift Hotel established back in 1934 but recently undergone a $US50 million makeover from the Ian Schrager-Philippe Starck hotel collaboration. The Rooms have retained their original structure but the old world grandeur has been replaced by Starck's typically high concept modernism: the eye-popping interior is part hunting lodge part hospital operating theatre. Doormen keep the riff raff out while celebrities and socialites sip sweet powerful drinks brought to them by waiflike waitresses in the skimpiest of skimpy outfits. The drinks choice: lychee and lavender martinis are a hit; the Key Lime Tartini with vanilla vodka, butterscotch schnapps and lime is a liquid dessert; and the Honeysuckle made with orange honey and cointreau is a sweet tooth's fantasy. If you need some top nosh to soak it all up, the Asia de Cuba restaurant is in the hotel. Expect to pay for the privileges.
