Sports with Style at AT&T Park
San Francisco is undeniably a city for foodies with a penchant for farm-to-table cuisine, bold red-loving oenophiles, and dedicated sports fans who appreciate their Bay Area teams, especially San Francisco’s beloved Giants. With restaurants, bars, and the AT&T Park nearby, residents of the luxury San Francisco condos at 181 Fremont in SoMa can relish all that this historic locale has to offer.
Just a 20-minute walk from 181 Fremont, AT&T Park is more than a place to enjoy America’s favorite pastime, baseball. It’s a location to see big-budget theatrical experiences like Cirque de Soleil, concerts from legendary singer-songwriters Bonnie Raitt and James Taylor, and other sports spectacles—from college football games to Giant Race Series half-marathons. Living so close to AT&T Park—and the soon-to-be-built Chase Center where the Warriors are set to play—also means that you can elevate your experience by sampling food and drink from our SoMa favorites.
Meet your friends at SoMa hotspot JAX for a pregame bottle of wine. When you enter this convivial tasting-room space, you’ll be transported to Napa without having to get on the interstate. Try the JAX Vineyards Block 3 Cabernet Sauvignon, which received 97 points from The Wine Advocate for its deep flavor produced from grapes grown on alluvial soil. Sip your vino and discuss your pick for MVP around the fire pit outside.
If you want a meal that will sustain you well after the seventh-inning stretch, treat yourself to a dinner with a presidential pedigree. Housed in a converted 1917 warehouse and packing plant, Twenty Five Lusk is a celebrated multilevel restaurant serving sensational seasonal fare like duck confit, sunchoke risotto, and a whole fish with chimichurri for the table. Zagat described Twenty Five Lusk as “one of the most fashionable destinations in town.”
Once you get to AT&T Park, you have even more ways to celebrate the big game with panache. While peanuts, Cracker Jacks, and hot dogs offer a fun, nostalgic treat, this world-class ballpark has myriad options for those who want more than typical stadium fare, like Rich Table’s porcini doughnuts with raclette dipping sauce. Rent out a private luxury space like the Anchor Suite and get a refrigerator full of Anchor Steam beer or arrange for an additional tasting. You might also find yourself right on the field at Triples Alley, where you are escorted before the game and lavished with food and drink.
No matter what happens on the field—you’ll win!
