When & Where
An iconic historic landmark steeped in the history of San Francisco, the reimagined Ghirardelli Square is a vibrant urban destination offering an exciting variety of creatively-inspired boutiques, notable restaurants, engaging activities, and seasonal events appealing to hip local residents and area visitors.
Boasting unparalleled panoramic views of the Bay, Golden Gate Bridge and cable cars from its waterfront location at Beach & Larkin, Ghirardelli Square dates back to the mid-1800s, when it served as the original site of the Ghirardelli family’s chocolate, cocoa, mustard and box factories. Following a multi-million dollar revitalization opening in 2008 Ghirardelli Square has reemerged as one of San Francisco’s hottest new lifestyle destinations.
