San Francisco is not known for its blistering heat, but every once in a while Karl the Fog allows a nice, sunny day. On that day, go to El Techo De Lolinda for a rooftop experience. Located in the popular Mission neighborhood, this rooftop bar provides a spectacular view of the city. Even when it’s not temperate out, there are heat lamps to keep the chill away, loud music blaring and pitchers on pitchers of Margaritas to accompany the kitchen’s fried chicken thighs and chicharrones.


If you love bitter, get the Burning Leaves, a combo of mezcal, dry vermouth, Cocchi Americano and Aperol. Don’t love bitter? Try the La Paloma.


There will be quite a wait for El Techo on sunny days, but the spot will send you a text message when your table is ready. And lucky for you, El Techo is sandwiched between two other bars that will meet your needs in the meantime.
