This simple concrete rooftop in SoMa offers space for 40 and views of Salesforce Park and Tower. It’s an urban oasis in the heart of the city brimming with greenery and cafe seating.

This space is ideal for corporate and business events, parties, meetings, creative sessions, and client presentations. You’ll get tables, chairs, A/V equipment, a flatscreen monitor, whiteboards, and an on-site A/V technician to help make sure your equipment runs smoothly.

Feel free to reach out directly to the venue host if you have any questions about the venue or amenities — Peerspace makes finding the best rooftop in San Francisco easy and accessible! This is one of the most scenic rooftops in SF.

A Peerspace reviewer shared helpful insights are booking this roof: “This was a great space for our year end holiday party of ~125 people. The complementary event coordinators, outdoor string lights and uplighting were fantastic and our DJ had access to everything he needed for his set up. It’s also a plus that the venue has tables, chairs and linens available onsite. The views were great, there wasn’t any wind, and everyone really enjoyed being on the rooftop The picture is a little misleading only because patio heaters aren’t allowed on the rooftop due to permitting issues so be prepared to bring layers if it’s cold outside!”

4. A penthouse with soaring city views overlooking the Financial District

You know you’ve found one of the best rooftops in SF when the venue comes with a luxurious penthouse, rooftop bar, and 2,000-square-foot rooftop deck. With a guest capacity of 75, you can host a large board meeting, class reunion, or company holiday party in this classy space. 

The penthouse is filled with professional yet fun decor that fits many different styles and occasions. Plus, there is a board room, full kitchen, and lounge space. And this venue allows outside caterers! While there are many incredible caterers to choose from, it can be hard knowing which service your chosen venue. Let the host help with finding the perfect caterer — and bartender, entertainment, or equipment rentals, too! 

In the words of a Peerspace reviewer: “Pictures cannot accurately describe just how awesome this space is. All rooms are connected to an iPad for ease of use navigating music, projector, TV, and other fancy tech needs. The outdoor patio was definitely a bonus and we conducted the majority of our meeting/offsite outdoors while enjoying the beautiful weather. My team will definitely return to this awesome space.”

5. An outdoor rooftop perfect for a BBQ
