Wolf of Battery Street

You're the playboy in your own penthouse


Whether you covered the spread or simply ate half a bowl of it, the most magical day of American sports is over.

What to do next? Visit the most magical place on earth: The Penthouse at The Battery.
The Battery is SF's newest private social club, but you needn’t be a member to stay there. The luxe property offers fifteen boutique hotel rooms including a noteworthy top-floor perch.

Modeled after Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion and lushly decorated by “it” designer Ken Fulk (
The Cavalier), the Penthouse is a temple to indulgence. It makes all the other suites in the city cry.
The 6,200 square-foot space rocks a lounge area, full-size bar, kitchen, roof deck, and separate bedroom suite. Guests arrive via a custom glass elevator inspired by who else? Willy Wonka. With state-of the-art touchscreen-controlled lighting, 80” HDTV, and a Steinway sound system, Wayne Manor’s got nothing on this place.
During your stay, you’ll also be a resident member with full access to: the club’s four bars (including a members-only hideaway with a bookcase secret door),
seasonal 717B restaurant, Steve Zissou-inspired library, modern gym, and full-service spa.
Arrange for an in-room massage and when it’s time for dinner, have The Battery send up a private chef. Breathe in the sweeping, cityscape views from the patio. If Karl threatens to cloud your night, slip into the infinity hot tub and cozy up around the fire pit afterwards.
At $10,000 a night, there's no time for sleeping.
