Stunning views of San Francisco that sweep from Mission Street all the way to the Bay, complex tequila cocktails and well-seasoned plates of Latin American food make El Techo de Lolinda—a spacious rooftop bar above Lolinda steakhouse—the perfect stop for a lively meal or drinks. Bartenders serve bright, refreshing drinks with roots in South America—caipirinhas, pińa coladas and margaritas using fresh coconut and carefully selected cachaca, and other rum-, tequila-, and pisco-inspired originals. One of the best kitchens in the city turns out upscale food inspired by street-cart fare—small plates of fresh guacamole, corn on the cob, ceviche, skewers and chicharrones de carne (roasted and fried chunks of pork shoulder served with house-made tortillas, lime, salsa and fish). Equipped with heat lamps and umbrellas, El Techo is a great late-night destination since the kitchen stays open until 1am on weekends. Though long lines can form outside the elevator to gain entry, it's worth the wait.
