San Francisco’s Union Square and Little Saigon: Vietnamese Eateries and Quality Shopping
Cova Hotel is located in San Francisco’s Little Saigon, a two-block corridor situated within the Tenderloin. Though it was deemed an official neighborhood in 2004, Little Saigon has long been a gathering place for Vietnamese-Americans, who own the majority of the restaurants and businesses in the area. True to its name, the neighborhood is the spot to go for authentic Vietnamese food. Venture down Larkin Street and follow your nose.
Just a few blocks away, Union Square is a shopper’s paradise. Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Macy’s anchor its namesake plaza, and a new Bloomingdale’s was just installed at the Westfield San Francisco Centre. You’ll find smaller boutiques and independent clothiers tucked away on narrow alleyways. Sift through vintage books at family-owned antique shops, or admire iconic French fashion labels on pedestrian-only Maiden Lane.
Union Square is also famous for its eclectic arts scene. Less than a mile from the hotel, Tix Bay Area sells half-price tickets to some of the town’s best shows. The Tony Award–winning American Conservatory Theater produces dramas and cutting-edge comedy shows in a stunning Beaux Arts building. A handful of art galleries and museums—most notably the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art—display world-renowned works from Henri Matisse, Andy Warhol, and Edward Hopper.
