President's Terrace


Meet us on the roof of Graduate Palo Alto, where playful drinks from cocktail creative Bad Birdy and a locally driven menu await you at President’s Terrace.

Our seafood-forward plates champion the Bay Area’s finest ingredients, like gorgeous bay scallops and fresh Pacific kampachi.

And while you’re relaxing under the twinkling lights, you have to try one (or more, we don’t judge) of our incredible cocktail creations, inspired by bright West Coast flavors and our panoramic views. More interested in natural wines and local craft brews? We rotate our list frequently so there’s something new to try each time you come in.



Our presidential past, on new terms.

Built in 1929, the iconic Hotel President was named to honor then-president Herbert Hoover, one of the first students to enroll at Stanford University. Fast forward almost a century, our beautifully designed Palo Alto rooftop bar and restaurant bears the name President’s Terrace as a nod to the hotel’s historic roots.
