Virgin Heads to San Fran
Gensler designs rooftop bar, Everdene
The Virgin Hotels San Francisco features 192 “chambers” (aka Virgin’s signature two-room guestroom concept) and two Penthouse Suites; multiple dining and drinking outlets, including the brand’s flagship space, Commons Club and Funny Library Coffee Shop; numerous meeting spaces; and the city’s newest rooftop bar, Everdene, which will open in March.
The hotel also features a lineup of designers for its spaces: Gensler as the designer for Everdene, Hager Design International (HDI) as the interior designer of record and Matthew Rolston as the creative director for the hotel’s public spaces and Commons Club. Under his direction, Rolston envisioned the destination, merging an eclectic architectural and decorative mix between San Francisco’s Victorian-era past, the city’s 1960s rock ’n’ roll appropriation of Victorian styling, and a 19th-century British feel. The hotel is owned by Paradigm Hotels Group and operated by Virgin Hotels.
The hotel also offers a 24-hour fitness center and more than 7,000 sq. ft. of meeting and event space.
