I met up with a couple of friends earlier this week at the  Starlight Room located on the 21st floor of the Sir Francis Drake Hotel. None of us had been before and what a treat! The view of Union Square is absolutely amazing during the holidays. I can’t imagine paying $12 for a cocktail when the view is not this sparkly, but who knows…maybe I’ll return in the spring to check it out.
