Kaiyo Rooftop
San Francisco, CA

Kaiyo Rooftop is a Japanese-Peruvian Nikkei rooftop bar and restaurant near the Mission Bay waterfront. As the Design and Executive Architect, WDA worked in close collaboration with our client to create a destination rooftop oasis. Richly textured design elements and lush greenery transform the hotel’s rooftop. Kaiyo’s bar is the focal point and features a custom-designed metal screen that frames the back bar shelving. Vibrant green handmade tile, a luminescent quartzite bar top and woven light fixtures complete the tropical look. A variety of built-in banquettes and tables offer flexible seating options and strategically placed heaters and clear windscreens provide comfort and protection from the elements while maintaining openness and maximizing the stunning city views.
