I guess people went here for Prom Night? Anyway, they’re super nostalgic for our one and only formerly revolving restaurant.
“It’s been gone since May of 2007 and still there are reviews pouring in.”
Not much has changed since it closed. Here’s an update from 2009. And here’s how it looks now:
One supposes the scaffolding has nothing to do with getting the thing to revolve again. Our Hyatt Regency Embarcadero sends workers up there to work on the famous Embarcadero Center Christmas / holiday lights sometimes. It looks like this:
But see for yourself – Time After Time was a horrible 1979 movie that you could have shot yourself. Check it out starting at 57:50. See? That was the Equinox.
(But don’t pay attention to the clumsy edits as you see the same background over and over.)
In mitigation, TAT was filmed on location, so it’s got that going for it:
Time After Time was filmed throughout San Francisco, including Cow Hollow, North Beach, the Hyatt Regency hotel, California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park, the Marina District, Ghirardelli Square, Fisherman’s Wharf, the Richmond District, the Golden Gate Bridge, Grace Cathedral on Nob Hill, the Embarcadero Center, Chinatown, the Marina Green, the Palace of Fine Arts, Potrero Hill, and the Civic Center.
So that’s your update.
Oh, you can still go up there, but you have to pay a lot of money and be a hotel guest at the time. Or you have to make friends with a hotel guest and then pay $35 per visit.
Hey, how much would it take to get this place revolving as a restaurant again? Millions and millions prolly…
