Star Power: The Haute 5 Celebrity Hangouts in San Francisco

San Francisco may not be a celebrity ridden town like Los Angeles or Las Vegas, but when the celebs come to play in our town, they do it big. Check out these venues below and you never know who may be sitting next to you.


When celebrities visit San Francisco, they usually party at Roe. This three level club is a guaranteed spot to find Samantha Ronson spinning when she is in town. Stephanie Pratt, of The Hills, celebrated in style when she held her birthday party here in May. In July, the Prince of Persia Post WonderCon Cocktail Party hosted guests like Jake Gyllenhaal and Nicolas Cage.

Roe is located at 651 Howard St., San Francisco. Visit their website at

Café Zeotrope

This North Beach restaurant is owned by renowned director Frances Ford Coppola. It is named after his production company American Zeotroppe. They offer authentic Italian cuisine and feature wines from Coppola’s winery.

Café Zeotrope is located at 916 Kearny St., San Francisco. For reservations call 415.291.1700 or visit

Mas Sake

Members of the San Francisco Giants are often seen hanging out at this Marina Japanese restaurant. Known for their deliciously fresh sushi and their fun, modern atmosphere, it’s no wonder the best team in baseball (according to me, and soon, statistics) choose to unwind here.

Redwood Room

I have mentioned the Redwood Room in a previous post about the Clift. This hotel bar is as good as they come. They have a great lounge set-up and amazing cocktails. Gwen Stefani, Paris Hilton, Sean Penn and Leonardo DiCaprio have all been spotted at this luxe venue.

Redroom Room is located inside the Clift Hotel at 495 Geary St., San Francisco. Visit their website at

One word, two people, Brangelina. This hotel is where the power couple, Brad and Angelina, stayed when Brad was shooting the upcoming Moneyball. This upscale hotel is located just a stones throw away from San Francisco.
