Union Square is full of shops and good places to eat. Try the Brazilian restaurant on 16th St. They have really great food.

“What's not to like about it??”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

Take a stroll through the park, there's always something going on there Go see some great alternative entertainment like Traces or Fuerza Bruta. Hungry? You have excellent choices such as: Tocqueville, Laut, the Union Square Cafe, Mesa Grill, Aldea, Blue Water Grill, Olives, City Crab, etc.

What do I like about Union Square. It's clean, with beautiful lights and color, and of course, I dance!
