Join SF’s own Mike Bee (Vinyl Dreams Records/Housepitality) up on the roof of Charmaine’s for an eclectic chill out selection that brings to mind the beach clubs of Bali, Café Del Mar in Ibiza, and London’s anything-goes attitude with the laid-back charm of a San Francisco afternoon.
Mike’s local pedigree harkens back to the explosive mid-90’s rave/club experience and he’s been a figure on the local scene since, playing nearly every venue in town and well-known as a music encyclopedia, willing to share his newest discoveries as quickly as a needle drops to vinyl. Expect a no-genres-barred vibe that lovingly goes from electronica to reggae, from folk to rock, from obscure 80’s to the most cutting edge sounds.
Proper began as a feeling, not as an idea. The feeling was something akin to empathy; an acute awareness that despite the current proliferation of “boutique” and “lifestyle” hotels and residences, there were precious few properties designed for and around today’s global creative nomad. Many in our milieu share the same daunting challenge: staying fresh and focused, energized and inspired—all whilst bouncing between London and Hollywood and Austin and San Francisco and Portland and back again. For them, intuitive service is a given. Mere table stakes. What they need and seek beyond accommodation, even at its most luxurious, is an inspiration. From the elevated and often surprising interiors imagined by Kelly Wearstler. From the sense of immersion in, and connection to, the vibrancy of the local culture. From the highly curated amenities. From the inspired collaborations with the city’s best and most innovative chefs and mixologists. From music and art. From every detail, every interaction, every moment. This is only Proper. And no one else.
