See pocket demos, notice and explore clouds, and find north without a compass (weather permitting). Stroll along our South Apron, which features spectacular views of the Bay, and dine in the waterfront SeaGlass Restaurant or the plaza-side Seismic Joint Café. Visit the Pier 15‪ lobby, which includes a Bay History Wall that explores the history of Pier 15, San Francisco‘s maritime history, and the building‘s real-time energy generation data.
