Entertainment Center

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!

Stores Include:

  • 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.
