Union Square

If San Francisco has a heart, it’s in Union Square. This open-air plaza is ideal for sitting to enjoy a drink while you watch tourists, businessmen, shoppers, street performers and all the rest of the residents of the City by the Bay. Be sure to check local listings to see if any events are taking place in the Square, as the plaza is home to art shows, fashion shows, parties, and sometimes demonstrations, political and otherwise. On the plaza, there is a little café where you can get pastries, coffee or a glass of wine. Union Square is home to the TIX booth (350 Powell Street); buy discounted tickets there to shows at the downtown theaters.
