Fastest Men in the World

Be on the lookout… sailors everywhere!


As Journey sings, “When the lights go down in the City and the sun shines on the Bay, do I want to be there…” ABSOLUTELY!

With San Francisco hosting the 34th America’s Cup July 4th – Sept 21st, and starting preparation for the fall social season, (we are) this city is the ONLY place to be right now.  For the first time in America’s Cup history, the race is confined to the Bay, close to shore so it’s all about up close and personal.  Not a bad seat in the house. Where to start…

The America’s Cup Village on Marina Green, two locations,  free access on Marina Green w/ 6,500 bleacher seats & the Yacht Club Peninsula. Offering live viewing of the races from of 1.400 seats. Also cool for kids is the Fan Zone & Digital boathouse where fans can interact in real time all over the world.

Pier 27/29  is the America’s Cup Park. Inside is the AC Pavilion. You can shop – Louis Vuitton store, Puma Yard  (shopping), and the AC Shop . You can play (the adult kind) from the Puma Bar. Fantasize about being on one of 13 super yachts docked there. You can rock out in the Amphitheater. This 9,000 seat theater will host major concerts, shows and on race days a video screen. Also a Fun Zone for the kids.

Does being married or single influence Where2Stay? Do you want your hotel hip & modern (perfect for singles (S)) or quiet & elegant (perfect for married (M)). Sometimes you want to “marry” the two (MS).


St. Regis Hotel – Official hotel of the America’s Cup.  Ideal location, great bar. Perfect set up to meet the superstars of the sailing world. (MS)

Hotel Zetta – Owned by uber chic Viceroy, this new kid on the block offers the perfect urban retreat. Modern decor, oversized rooms, special playroom (shuffleboard anyone?) located in the heart of Downtown. Perfect for (S)

Argonaut Hotel – Boutique hotel in refurbished warehouse, w/ exposed brick,  Frette linens, free wine, WiFi & yoga on the TV. In-room Starbucks. Perfect location with Fisherman’s Wharf right outside your door. Perfect for families (kids love that sourdough bread). (M)



For sea dogs & landlubbers alike, the shipwrecked-boat-turned America’s Cup Sports Bar on Pier 27 is the perfect place for drinks between races. The world’s largest pop-up bar also serves brunch. Another pop-up is the anticipated Waiheke Island Yacht Club straight from Auckland. Huge airy warehouse, a bit of Kiwi hospitality. As day turns to night, try the new Roka Akor in FiDi for the freshest sushi (flown in from Japan) and coolest whiskey lounge.


In addition to sailing, eating & drinking  don’t miss the new Exploratorium on Pier 15/17. Interactive exhibits of science, arts and perception. Great for grownups too. Experience  the new fog bridge!

Bay Lights – A light sculpture’s dream – a 1.8 mile installation. Running the length of the Bay bridge artist Leo Villareal, w/the aid of computer software has created the ability to control 25,000 white LED lights into twinkling, shimmering patterns.  Attached by cables, it’s another way SF lights up the Bay!
