Haute 5 Places in San Francisco to Bring in the New Year: It’s Time to Put on Your Party Pants

Hotel Vitale and Americano

And finally what would a New Year’s Eve party be without some fireworks to spark off some prosperous New Year’s cheer? While anyone can go to Hotel Vitale for the general admission party, we would never dream of sending our readers to something so nonexclusive. For this party, we would only recommend the VIP area of the rooftop patio. Our VIPs can make themselves comfy at several places throughout the venue, including the seventh and eighth floors and the private, heated, rooftop balcony. Special treats include hors d’oeurves by American restaurant and desserts by Top Chef master Huber Keller (owner of Fleur de Lys and Burger Bar). House music will come courtesy of three different DJs, and naturally bottle service is available from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. And in an offer of true hospitality, hotel room rates are offered at a discount rate of $299.

Hotel Vitale and Americano Restaurant and Bar are located at 8 Mission St. at Embarcadero
