Clift's Living Room playfully maintains the feeling of a hunting lodge by replacing stuffed animal trophies with a whimsical portrait series of a toy collection by Jean-Baptiste Mondino.

October 3rd, 2011

Clift Hotel invited us up to San Francisco to check out the experience, the city, and their building which is coming up on its 100th birthday.  This San Francisco landmark had its renovation/restoration designed by Philippe Starck and loves mixing the old and the new.  One of the most fun features, Living Room, is located just off the lobby.  Its mahogany wood panelling echoes Redwood Room's painstakingly restored redwood boards.  Living Room also offers a much calmer atmosphere, the perfect place for getting a respite from the day while still keeping an eye on the action.  Scores of animal toy portraits taken by Jean-Baptise Mondino are wonderful company. They fill your vision and reward your curiosity as you explore the space.

Living Room became my favorite location in the hotel and I found myself constantly returning to it.
Their Rosa Picante has a delicious blend of Hanger One's Chipotle Vodka and a blackened strawberry syrup. It is both fiery and sweet, though the mint garnish helps cool things off a bit. It is dangerously easy to drink!
It is also a fantastic drink to clink glasses with a toy snake... I'm sure it appreciates its bite.
There is an amazing variety to the portraits... every time I returned I noticed something new.
I love this tiger's expression caught mid-roar for all eternity. Living Room is just a small part of the Clift experience, but it is an extremely fun one. It also captures what Clift is all about... the playful blending of the old and the new. I wonder which portrait I'll fall in love with when I return?
