European Charm Meets World-Class Shopping

Maiden Lane

PLAY

Tucked between Stockton and Kearny Streets, away from the crowds of Union Square, lies a two-block oasis with an irresistible sense of European charm. Beautiful metal gates invite you to enter Maiden Lane and stroll along the posh, pedestrian alleyway boasting chic restaurants and high-end retailers including Chanel, Hermes, and Gump’s. Trees line the sidewalks and clusters of red tables and chairs tempt window shoppers to stop and linger. Maiden Lane is also home to San Francisco’s only Frank Lloyd Wright building, which is currently occupied by Italian designer, Isaia. Whether you’re browsing for an occasion or for leisure, Maiden Lane offers a world-class shopping retreat waiting to be explored.
