Just south of Downtown, Pioneer Square is the location of Seattle's first flourishing neighborhood. Although burned to the ground at the turn of the century, the cobblestone streets and historic architecture still give a glimpse of its past. By day, Pioneer Square is a favorite tourist destination, its specialty shops, fine art galleries and unique tours a must see for any visitor. However, after sundown, the Square becomes a night-life hotspot, with packed pubs, trendy dance clubs, and bars featuring a variety of live entertainment.

Just east of Pioneer Square is the International District, Seattle's traditionally Asian neighborhood. Uwajimaya, a huge Asian supermarket and shopping complex, is the area's most lively addition. However, the International District also has plenty of Asian art and cultural attractions to check out. The Wing Luke Asian Museum, the Nippon Kan Theatre's Japanese Performing Arts Series, and the dragon mural at Hing Hay Park offer a glimpse into the many cultures that live in the International District.

Zeitgeist Kunst und Kaffee
161 S Jackson Street | ph: (206) 583.0497
Perhaps Pioneer Square's most striking coffeehouse, Zeitgeist fills its walls with rotating art exhibits. The high ceilings, plate windows, and exposed brick give it a distinct architecture. Meanwhile, the quality of the baristas, sandwiches and pastries for lunch and breakfast, and authentic feel make this a casually professional place for coffee.
Bud's Jazz Records
102 S. Jackson St. | ph: (206) 628.0445
Opened in 1981, Bud's Jazz Records is known worldwide as an authority on jazz. Its location in Pioneer Square's Underground is a mecca for jazz enthusiasts who find the superb selection of cds and vinyl as inviting as the knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff. The shop also acts as a gallery of jazz related art, with monthly exhibits of local and national artists.
Flowers et Cetera
2216 South Jackson Street | ph: (206) 323.6139
A full-service local florist featuring tropical and exotic floral arrangements, this florist handles corporate events, weddings, and gifts. Gourmet gift baskets, chocolates, wine and champagne can be delivered with the flowers, throughout Seattle and Bellevue.
Herban Pottery
3220 First Ave. S. | ph: (206) 621.8601
A visit to Herban Pottery is an absolute must for anyone looking for yard or lanai décor. This former Wallingford shop carries fountains, lanterns, plants, and outdoor sculpture, but its true specialty is pots. Here you'll find everything from simple terra cotta pots to pots imported from as far away as Egypt and Indonesia.
