DPEM’s Best of the Bay Picks


In celebration of TEN years as producer of San Francisco magazine’s Best of the Bay, we’re breaking down our 10 “bests” of the Bay Area. We are always pursuant of the hot, cool and undiscovered.

P.S. Don’t forget to use our exclusive producer’s discount when buying your Best of the Bay tickets here. Use code DPEM for 10% off Main and VIP tickets.

1. The Battery

This place oozes “cool.” If you can get in with a member, sipping on cocktails in the hidden room behind the bookcase is a must.

2. Free Outdoor Movie Screenings

There is nothing that says summer more than watching free movies outside, other than oh, yeah… fog. See a full listing here.

3. Gotham Club before Giants Games

The perfect way to kick off a game is to watch the pre-game action from the Bullpen, along right field warning track, while imbibing on local beer. Visit Gotham Club website here.

4. Morning Walk at Fort Cronkhite

Nothing says Northern California coastline like the Marin Headlands. The best part? Fort Cronkhite is under 30 minutes away.

5. Ferry to Dinner at Farmshop

Just across the street from the Larkspur Ferry Landing, Farmshop perfectly serves up the bounty from local farmers and artisans.

6.  Eating Our Way Through the City Via Avital Tours

If we had to choose just one way to enjoy San Francisco, we would take a big bite out of it. Avital Tours offer the perfect progressive food tours through the #1 food city in the world.

7. Cinnamon Toast at Trouble Coffee

Their website is as elusive as their menu. The coffee is great, but the Cinnamon Toast is better. In fact, it’s the best we’ve ever had and worth the $4.

8. Friday Night Bites at Bluxome Street Winery

Every Friday night Bluxome rolls up their door and brings in food and music. That paired with Bluxome Wine and the SOMA sunshine, and we’re happy campers.

9. Sipping a Cup of Tea at Flora Grubb

As if Flora Grubb wasn’t already perfect enough! They also have a Ritual Coffee outpost that serves Song Tea at the gardens. It’s the perfect place for a spontaneous retreat.

10. Spa Day at Nob Hill 

Tucked away on the top of the Hill, Nob Hill Spa has everything you need to pamper yourself. Indoor pool and hot tub: check. Lunch delivered to you while you soak: check. Outdoor deck overlooking the city: check and check!
