This landmark square in the heart of the city is known for fantastic shopping. It is, in fact, the largest district of stores, boutiques, restaurants, galleries, and salons in the Western United States. The recently remodeled mecca sports granite plazas, a terraced stage, light sculptures designed by artist R.M. Fischer, a café, the TIX half-price ticket center, and four grand-entrance corner plazas bordered by palms. Two cable-car lines—the Powell-Hyde and Powell-Mason—stop here. The square is home to a multitude of businesses, including not only a wide range of clothing stores, from Banana Republic and Anthropologie to Prada and Yves Saint Laurent, but also an assortment of antique stores, art galleries, beauty and health shops, and home decoration boutiques. More than 40 hotels are located nearby, as are a variety of restaurants, bars, and clubs for late-night dining and entertainment.
