Top of the Mark

Top of the Mark sits at the top of the InterContinental Mark Hopkins hotel.
The view of the Financial District from the Top of the Mark.

The Top of the Mark is a rooftop [1] The hotel itself was built on the site of the old Mark Hopkins mansion, which burnt down after the San Francisco earthquake of 1906.

The Top of the Mark features over 100 variations on the martini. During World War II, when San Francisco was a major transit point for troops going to the Pacific Theater, US Navy officers traditionally had a farewell drink before shipping out while watching the sun set over the Golden Gate Bridge. The bar remains popular today, featuring dancing and live music most days of the week.
