Exclusive Look: Your Esteemed Uncle’s Penthouse Lounge
Situated atop The Harrison on the 49th floor lies the city’s most exclusive and luxurious penthouse lounge, Uncle Harry’s. Solely accessible to The Harrison residents, Uncle Harry’s features 3,500 square feet of entertainment space and walls of windows revealing unobstructed vistas of the twinkling Bay Bridge, marina and AT&T Park just beyond. The literal and figurative pinnacle of design and detail, this swanky sanctuary in the sky brings to fruition an utterly refined urban lifestyle.
Imagined by famed interior designer Ken Fulk, the private penthouse retreat captivates with its emerald green interior and thoroughly sophisticated ambiance. The lounge is comprised of two impressive living spaces: the main great room, complete with a full bar, catering kitchen—ideal for private dinner parties—a double-sided fireplace and a secluded dining area, as well as a more intimate Speakeasy, featuring an additional bar, multiple lounge areas and—lest we not forget—jaw-dropping wraparound vistas. Uncle Harry’s Speakeasy is, without a doubt, the ultimate locale for an array of gatherings, whether that be a game viewing party or a posh cocktail hour.
Fulk meticulously decorated the space with vintage and modern finishes so as to merge classic San Francisco elegance with contemporary trends. In an interview with The Harrison, Fulk exclaimed, “As you stand in front of these panoramic views of the Bay with Treasure Island in the near distance, it feels like you could be living in any moment of San Francisco history.” Thus, Uncle Harry’s is an essential junction of old-world refinement and modern city living, transporting residents to any era they so choose.
Inundated with various textures, prints and metallic notes throughout, the lounge is meant to embrace an eccentric world-traveler theme which, of course, is reflective of its name: Uncle Harry’s. “Throughout the years, this city has been a gateway to the Pacific and the world beyond—and we are on that same world stage again—so that was our inspiration. It’s meant to feel like the living room of your most interesting ancestor—that adventurous, world-traveling great uncle,” says Fulk. From blue velvet, black marble, distressed wood and brass finishes to vintage African Kuba cloth and a crocodile-embossed leather bar, the interior decor embodies the personality of an esteemed, whimsical uncle.
Featured in Haute Living, Curbed San Francisco and Rue Magazine, Uncle Harry’s has garnered much acclaim for its lavishly catered lifestyle where residents delight in social gatherings, meetings, private parties, as well as The Harrison Attaché’s curated events. Whether one wishes to engage in wine tastings or enriching cultural programs, Uncle Harry’s represents the apex of luxury in a building where residents have come to expect nothing less.
