Yerba Buena Center now features everything you could imagine from the arts to movies to a full blown movie / entertainment center complete
with theme restaurants / shops. The complex is about expression, entertainment, and just plain fun! The shopping is unique to anywhere else in the world - every
store has a high-tech, multimedia, or futuristic theme. Metreon is open daily from 10am to 10pm. If you like high-tech theme retail - this is the place.
Commercialism reaches its zenith -- but in a really cool way:
350,000 square feet - four stories - $85mm of building costs - huge!
Digital Solutions - Entertainment and technology marketplace.
Things from Another World - Movies, comics, and collectibles.
Jelly Belly - The best gourmet jelly beans.
Action Theater - Anime products.
Bandai - Anime featuring Gundam products.
Games Workshop - Tabletop gaming.
Sony Style - Try out the latest Sony products with expert advice.
PlayStation - Hands on games store for PlayStation games.
DVD Station - Thousands of movies from $1 per day.
Chronicle Books - San Francisco books from a top publisher.
Parking in the Metreon area is unbelievably, horribly bad during the daytime and just poor at night. We'd very strongly recommend
a taxi or bus, but if you must drive (get ready to pay big $$$$) the nearby garages are:
5th @ Mission / Yerba Buena Garage (2,585 spaces) $1.50/hour to $13 maximum
