Union Square: While everyone has been casting eyes towards the street-level Urban Tavern and Manriques and Scalas behind it, the Hilton sneakily shuttered its signature—but woefully dated—Cityscape restaurant/bar on its top floor late this summer. But what we really want to share here is the memorable hiatus/shutter note now adorned on the restaurant's website. It's in full post-jump, and for those interested in a Cityscape return, it eloquently declares that the picturesque venue—and please note, "crowning achievement" of San Francisco—will remain open for private parties. To the missive:
Cityscape Bar & Restaurant Soon to Become San Francisco's Finest View Venue
Times change and so to must Cityscape. Happily, the outlook has never looked better. After some remodeling, Cityscape will re-open as a private venue reserved for life's treasured events and most cherished moments. Can you imagine a more memorable setting for a wedding, anniversary or specialy [sic] birthday?
With clear vistas of San Francisco and her countless icons, majestic hills, sparkling Bay and destination bridges, Cityscape will always remind those of us who live here how fortunate we are and those who visit how easily their hearts were surrendered.
Thanks to many of you - our wonderful loyal patrons - Cityscape has been a crowning achievement and a real asset to San Francisco's ever-growing popularity as a top destination.
We've shared a lot of great times between us and we look forward to many more.

On behalf of the entire Cityscape team, thanks for your loyalty and patronage.
