Aviation Theme Bar/Cafe In San Francisco

Fri Mar 15, 2002 3:33 am









There is a really cool café/bar in San Francisco called ‘The Orbit Room’.
It features a lot of themes from the ‘the jet era’ with need artifacts from the 50s, 60s and 70s.
As the photos illustrate, you can see the airline bags, posters and even the waitress wears flight attendant uniforms from the past. She also makes her one neat little uniforms.
The cocktail you see in the picture is 'The Aviation'. This was the drink that was given a toast as Lindbergh's s flight departed.
Next time you’re in San Francisco or if you already live here, go check it out.

It looks nice. Now that I see that Boac bag it reminds of a bag that my grandmother used to have, I don't know were she got it from cause she never flew Boac.

Nice to see a Sabena artifact. Seems to be a nice place to go to and have a drink.

I wondered why I hadn't been able to find that SABENA poster the past few years.
I'll be sure to visit it when I come to pick up my new Marauder this summer. You have arranged that for me, haven't you Superfly?
