NorCal’s Only Revolving Restaurant Doesn’t Revolve Anymore?

Well here it is, atop the “brutal“ concrete Hyatt Regency San Francisco hotel at 5 Embarcadero - the former Equinox revolving restaurant. But it closed down a few years back, never to revolve again. Oh well.

Back in the day, it was the thang. Check out a major Warner release from 1979 on the YouTube: Time After Time. It’s a time travel epic involving a hungry (try not to yell out “check please!” at 3:45) Mary Steenburgen and saucy Jack the Ripper. See how the place rotated?

These days, this rooftop locale has become the non revolving Regency Club Lounge or Regency Club, or Regency Club Floor and Lounge, something like that. The whole shebang is divided into four hemispheres, so now there are areas dedicated to “dining, business, entertainment and relaxation.”    

But this “hotel within a hotel” is reserved only for the upper crust of hotel guests.

Check it out, if you can.
