About Ghirardelli Square

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.

Jamestown purchased Ghirardelli Square in 2013 and has since been working to reinstate local significance to the historic global destination and strengthen its neighborhood influence in San Francisco. Jonathan Waxman’s restaurant concept joins more than 20 retailers in the space, purveying everything from local coffee and art to Northern California artisanal goods, gifts, fashion, wine and French baked delicacies.

The Square is also an epicenter for annual community and national events such as Uncorked Wine Festival, Ghirardelli Chocolate Festival and the Tree Lighting Ceremony. Purchased by Domingo Ghirardelli in 1893, the Square was built to headquarter the original Ghirardelli Chocolate Company. In 1982, the Square was added to the National Historic Register.
