An amazing dining experience. The happy hour wine deal was a great opportunity to try a very high end wine for half price the cheese tray was amazing. The service was excellent. Overall a very pleasant and enjoyable experience. Highly recommended.

They got liquor and lots of food there and even a lot of wine to drink out of delicate glasses. Good.

This might be a nice place to visit, but the name is mis-leading. The original S.F. Press Club existed when there were many daily papers in the city. It had an excellent dining room, rooms for rent, a hydro in the basement - and wonderful programs about the many facets of journalism

Quite the scene with people, terrific spacious spot with nice decor and lighting and lots of good wine to choose from. At our visit, they had a half-price off bottles of wine for $75 or more...a really great buy. Lots of banquettes, stools, and seating to find yourself chilling out.

Have been to a couple of college alumni meet ups at the Press Club since relocating to this distant land called California. Tucked away on Yerba Buena and below decks, this is a classy wine bar with a large and good selection, plus tasty nibbles. Seems best suited to a group. Unlike most other places in my adopted city, it... More

We had a gathering of 25 people for my daughter's birthday. It wasa very nice place for a gathering. My daughter had made arrangements with the club for the space and the wine. When we arrived everything was setup with both red and white wine and all the glasses. There was also pitchers of water on the tables. During the... More

I have been to this place several times and its a nice place to hang out, catch up with friends, meet people. I like the layout of the place, great ambiance and I absolutely love the music here. It' has an upscale feel so if you want to go a little fancy I'd highly recommend Press Club. It's a wine... More

This place has a very trendy, modern feel, it's an underground wine bar. Right out the back door of the Marriott Hotel and sitting somewhat underneath the Four Seasons. Have been a couple of times, the last time we had them set up a selection of local cheeses and wines for our group of about 25 in the back area... More

This place is NOT a tasting room anymore, despite the owner's description. It is simply a wine bar that serves a lot of local wine. They do not have tasting stations for individual wineries anymore. We arrived at 3 in the afternoon on a Saturday. It was the Chinese New Year parade day and the start of SF beer week.... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
