Compass Rose Nightclub

San Francisco in the 40's.the bygone era of glamour, romance, and of course, martinis. The Westin St. Francis and The Compass Rose have brought back the elegant, sophisticated style with the classic sounds and vintage fashions of Bob Dalpe and The Rose Trio.

Dalpe, a New York native, has been performing since he was 18. His Rose Trio consists of veterans, Michael Bluestein (piano), "Jumpin" Jack Dorsey (drums) and Paul "Slim" Smith (bass). Dalpe seduces an audience with a mix of swing and jazz that transforms beautifully into a style reminiscent of a young Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra. His repertoire consists largely of the Tin Pan Alley's greatest, including renditions of classic songs written by Cole Porter, Gershwin, Rogers and Hart, plus many more. His trendsetting style includes popular vintage classics that mix the romantic fabrics of the past with modern day, cosmopolitan chic.

Dalpe believes many of the hip martini bars have not been able to mix sophistication with romance like establishments did in the 40's. until now. The Compass Rose's revival of romance and martinis is what has brought everyone from "Gen Xers" to "Baby Boomers" flocking to see him perform and experience the feeling of a "Grand Bar." One patron summed up the attraction by saying, "This music transcends beyond the ages. Audiences in their 20's or in their 70's enjoy the sound and either remember the clothing style from the 40's or want to emulate it with a vintage 90's twist."

The beautiful Compass Rose is San Francisco's last grand bar and has been the rendezvous spot since the St. Francis opened in 1904. The room has made transformations from the ever - fashionable Patent Leather Bar, The Orchid Room and The Terrace Room before finally becoming The Compass Rose in 1982. With its exotic elegance and 40's style romance, it serves as the perfect backdrop to enjoy caviar, champagne and the City's perfect martini. Bob Dalpe & The Rose Trio play Tuesday-Thursday, 6-11 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 7p.m.-Midnight.

Saint Francis Hotel Restaurants:

San Francisco's Westin Saint Francis hotel hosted a tea-room for decades. Today, Michael Mina has made it into one of San Francisco's finest (and most expensive) restaurants. This is a super-deluxe restaurant that turns food into an art-form. Service is impeccable and the food is incredible. Typical prices for 2 are around $400 - $500 total price with drinks, dessert, tax, & tip - this is a place for an occaision.

Diners rave about the service, food, and atmosphere for their special nights out. A special feature of the restaurant is the "trio dishes" where the same food is cooked into 3 delicious but different dishes.
