The Metreon is a shopping center located in downtown San Francisco, California, United States at the corner of 4th Street and Mission Street. It is a four-story 350,000 sq ft (33,000 m2) building built over the corner of the underground Moscone Center convention center. Metreon opened on June 16, 1999, as the first of a proposed chain of Sony "urban entertainment centers", aggregating dining, games, music, exhibitions, shopping, and movies. Sony intended the ambitious 85 million dollar project to be not only a theme park and gallery for Sony products but also a way to reinforce a sophisticated image for the Sony brand.PutMetreon into our San Francisco travel route builder app and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
In 2006, Metreon was sold to Westfield Group, a mall developer, and it was refashioned as a food-oriented mall. In 2011, with few exceptions, remaining businesses in the mall were closed. Westfield began a major renovation with an emphasis on dining, including Target creating a large downtown department store that now takes up the second floor. In April 2012, Westfield sold the Metreon to Starwood Capital Group. Westfield (and its successor, Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield) continues to be responsible for management.

It’s a nice stop next to Yerba Buena gardens. Convenient to Moscone Centre. Good choices for a casual meal out. more »
Love to eat inside at their food court. We always have the chicken noodle soup at the soup place. Best soup ever. We have also gone to the movies here. Great theater. Plus Target is also in this building. Oh, and a Starbucks. Plus where we go to church is just across the street. Very convenient.
Has plenty of choices, a roomy seating plan, and comfortable space for you to relax. Great place to stop by for a rest when you pass through the area.
