Inside the F3 After-Party at Hawthorn Lounge

Fall Fashion Fest is coming up in less than two weeks! In addition to all of the fabulous shop events you’ll enjoy, we’re putting on a fabulous after-party at Union Square’s newest and hottest club Hawthorn. Read on for all the juicy details.

The Party

After you’ve shopped your heart out at Fall Fashion Fest on Oct. 9, continue the party at Hawthorn. We’ll have all of SF’s most fashionable people in one place ready to mingle, sip, and dance the night away! Tickets are only $20 and include a signature Skinny Girl cocktail. VIP tickets are $60 and include an open Skinnygirl bar in the exclusive VIP room.

The Cause

We’ll also be gathering for a good cause! Raffle tickets to win fabulous prizes like tickets to Cirque du Soleil and an array of Skinny Girl wine and spirits to take home will be sold throughout the event. All proceeds will benefit GLIDE, a radically inclusive, just and loving community mobilized to alleviate suffering and break the cycles of poverty and marginalization.

Inside Look at Hawthorn

San Franciscans like a good cocktail and great music. Hawthorn, San Francisco's newest cocktail lounge, delivers both. Hawthorn blends the best of historic San Francisco with 21st century amenities. Down one level from the street, the bar and sunken lounge is located in a section of the city that was the part of the infamous Barbary Coast, and you can almost picture Turn-of-the-century San Franciscans popping in for a cocktail. Fully refurbished by the Joshua Rowland Design Team, Hawthorn features rich, warm textures, Austrian drapes, deep lavender ceiling swathes and comfortable lounge seating.  In addition to being a retro-chic cocktail lounge, Hawthorn offers music and dancing in the later hours of the night with electronic music of all genres on a world-class VOID Tri-Motion sound system, custom built in the UK and first of its kind in North America. It’s sure to impress the most finicky of music and sound aficionados.

Hawthorn is the brain child of a well-heeled group of industry vets, including Chadwick Baumbach (Kimpton Group, La Costanera) and Gabriel McWilliams with Jenny Kiely (Mars Bar). Hawthorn’s signature drink menu was created by accomplished San Francisco bartender Ethan Terry (Alembic, 15 Romolo) and features seven signature cocktails that were inspired by traditional 80s club cocktails all grown up. Take for example the Mucho Melon Sour, made with Vodka, Chareau Aloe Liqueur, fresh melon and lemon juice, egg white, raw sugar syrup and jalapeño juice.

With all this and other surprises in the works, we know you’ll want to be there. Get your tickets at
