The patio at Spirits In The Sky can maybe hold 25 people comfortably. The bar is a tiny rollaway operation that you could rent for a house party from a catering company, it’s only open from 4-8pm Tuesday-Saturday, and it can get pretty cold up here. But this bar is 40 stories up and has an incredible view of North Beach from the Financial District. Even if you only come up for one drink, the scenery is absolutely worth the elevator ride and the $16 cocktails because they manage to cram more of a view into this tiny bar than every other rooftop in San Francisco combined - at least until the fog rolls in.
