Party Photos: Cocktails in San Francisco

At Bambuddha, November 17, 2004

Posted December 10, 2004

A pool party in November? It might sound crazy, but sometimes the craziest ideas make the very coolest parties (Besides, the patio was heated.) Bambuddha's poolside cocktail lounge in the legendary Phoenix Hotel isn't quite an Asian sanctuary, but a circular bar, giant bamboo, and lots of drink specials made way for a sexy atmosphere and great conversation.
