There’s a lot to love about the City by the Bay. With it’s laid back vibe, commitment to equality, diversity and all things eco-friendly, offbeat neighbourhoods and choice of stellar restaurants it’s easy to see through the fog to one of the coolest cities on Earth. With more speakeasies, farmers markets and Victorian rooflines than hipsters can click their iPhones at, San Francisco is a haven for globetrotting hedonists.
With so much to choose from, we’ve stepped in to offer our helping hand with the launch of Hg2 | A Hedonist’s Guide to San Francisco. Hg2 San Francisco showcases the very best on offer in the foggy city, including the quirky boutique HOTELS, mouth-watering RESTAURANTS, underground BARS, cosy CAFES, hip-shaking CLUBS, unique SHOPS and fun THINGS TO DO.
In celebration of the launch, we’re offering one lucky winner the chance to cosy in for two nights at one of the hottest hotels in San Francisco: the Mandarin Oriental.
