Wingtip | An Exclusive hideout in the heart of San Francisco's Financial District

wingtip.jpg

Behind a a couple of red doors and a biometric fingerprint scanner lies a rather unique member's only destination tucked away in the heart of San Francisco's bustling Financial District. The private refuge is a complement to its retail brother, OnTheFly, where discerning customers have been procuring their gentlemenly needs both online and now at their brick and mortar location located conveniently down the street.

What awaits members inside Wingtip is a bevy of libations, video games, TVs, and a few workstations, just in case you need to send a memo that your meeting is running a bit longer than expected. Though in reality you want to catch the first few innings of the game or you're just having too much fun destroying your underling in a game of Wii Bowling. You can also kick back and catch up on a couple of chapters from any of the many books available or even borrow a Kindle or iPad to get on top of the latest, digitally.

Whatever the case, whether work or play, you can get it done at Wingtip. Applications are being accepted as we speak and if you were wondering if its just a Men's club, we think they put it best: "WINGTIP does not discriminate based on age, race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or disability. We do, however, reserve the right to discriminate against assholes."

Located at 560 Montgomery St. San Francisco, CA 94111 - Website
