True to its name, the homey Warming Hut is the perfect place to get relief from the frigid wind and fog that blows through the Golden Gate. Warm your bones inside this quaint, historic 1909 wood-frame building, once a U.S. Engineer Storehouse but transformed in 2001 into a gift shop run by the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy.
Located at Crissy Field's West Bluff not far from Torpedo Wharf and Fort Point, the Warming Hut is beloved by locals who gather here after a run with the baby stroller, a hike with the dog, birdwatching, or even a day of crabbing at the pier. The Warming Hut offers a selection of unique and locally-made souvenirs, park gear, and books for sale in the gift shop. They also have packaged snacks and beverages – including hot chocolate, coffee, tea, cold beverages – from local and California producers available. Proceeds benefit the parks.
We highly recommend enjoying your hot chocolate al fresco at the outdoor picnic tables or while walking on the wharf beneath the Golden Gate Bridge. Bathrooms are located outside in a neighboring building. And if you're looking for a place to plug-in, know that the Warming Hut does not have Wi-Fi.
The Warming Hut is open Thursday to Monday, 9 am to 5 pm. Call (415) 561-3040 if you have any questions.
