Visiting Union Square on a Jay Hotel Getaway in Downtown San Francisco
Union Square proper is a Downtown San Francisco plaza edged by Post, Stockton, Geary, and Powell streets and crowned by the 1903-built Dewey Monument’s Goddess of Victory. The broader Union Square neighborhood, however, extends beyond that historic central plaza, overlapping with the San Francisco Theater District.
A dense and diverse concentration of stores makes Union Square an obvious choice for San Francisco shopping excursions, not least during the high-pressure holiday season coming rapidly down the pike. Here you’ll find, for example, such big-name department stores and retailers as:
- Saks Fifth Ave (384 Post St)
- Macy’s (170 O’Farrell St)
- Nordstrom (865 Market St)
- Neiman Marcus (150 Stockton St)
- Apple Union Square Store (300 Post St)
- Louis Vuitton (233 Geary St)
- Banana Republic (152 Geary St)
- Valentino (105 Grant Ave)
- Bloomingdale’s (845 Market St)
- Nike San Francisco (278 Post St)
Besides the department stores, boutiques, art galleries, and other shop-till-you-drop destinations, you’ll also find a nice assortment of dining options in the Union Square area, from the French bistro Bouche (604 Bush St) to the beloved pizzeria Del Popolo (855 Bush St).
Winter Wander-land at Union Square
Union Square also plays host to a variety of special events throughout the year, including, this stretch of the calendar, the holiday extravaganza of Winter Wander-land. This annual tradition includes a variety of seasonal attractions, including Gump’s Holiday Pop-Up (at 240 and 250 Post St), Macy’s Great Tree, the Bill Graham Menorah, the Larger-Than-Life Ornament Trail, and the Safeway Holiday Ice Rink.
