In The Studio of Richard Colman

Richard Colman is a San Francisco-based artist who I’ve been fortunate enough to know since I was probably 13. His work is magic, so you should definitely find one of the galleries that represents him and buy up all of his work. If your stacks are short, you can also purchase the tote bag he made for us here. Enjoy!

Boasting 270º degree views with windows that open, this room is perfect for experiencing the ever-changing light and weather of of San Francisco. If for some reason you feel ansy and want to explore, the Clift’s marquee bar the Redwood Room is a specially designed place to have a couple drinks and make some new friends. 100% worth the visit.
