Napa Getaway



Napa Valley is located approximately 55 miles North of San Francisco and known worldwide as a food and wine mecca for travelers. There are over 400 wineries and the Valley boasts several Michelin Star restaurants to please the most finicky diners. With it being a short distance away, I try to plan a trip once a year and this past weekend was my opportunity to indulge in food, wine and relaxation. The landscape and scenery is breathtaking to say the least, which presented the perfect opportunity to practice my photography. When in Northern California, I highly recommend spending a few days or more to explore the beautiful Wine Country. Image credit: Style-Haus

I don't live in the states... :( Actually, I'd heard of Napa Valley but had no idea that it was affiliated with wine and vineyards! I always thought the name was funny "Napa" ... reminds me of "nappy" and babies...

Anyway, the quality of your photos is amazing. I need a new camera!

Manor West focuses on three basic elements to stand out in the San Francisco Nightlife scene: the design, the crowd and the talent. As you walk into Manor West, you are greeted by an impressive 30 ft backdrop designed by Yelena Yemchuk, former Creative Director for the Smashing Pumpkins. The rest of the interior, a direct antithesis to the unassuming (and almost hidden) exterior of the venue, feels comfortable and spacious with high oak ceilings and a raised VIP bottle service area.
http://www.manorwestsf.com

The 4,500 square foot venue has the feel of a smaller, more intimate venue. Creative placement of bars, bathrooms and VIP areas solve the flow problems that some clubs can experience on busy nights by releasing bottlenecks and making it easier to access the essential features of the club. Raised VIP booths surround the DJ Booth and allow VIP groups access to a private area with views of the entire club while a large VIP area in the back of the club allows groups of 20 to 30 to celebrate together. Talent like Caroline D’Amore, DJ Spider, Dirt Nasty, Andre Legacy and local favorites Designer Djs, Cams and Zhaldee have already graced the decks and SF can look forward to an impressive lineup of top notch DJs and bands to show up throughout 2010.
