Area 31
14/20

The name of Kimpton EPIC Hotel's Area 31 does not refer to the floor this spot occupies (it's on 16). Instead, the name is a reference to Fishing Area 31, from which many of the restaurant's sustainable species of fish and shellfish hail. Sit on the outdoor terrace by the glass railing with the skyscraper-to-bay views. See More
