**Guest Post by the team at LesConcierges

If anyone knows where to go in Union Square during the holiday season, it’s the 100+ concierges at LesConcierges on Maiden Lane. Our concierges live and breathe the concierge lifestyle – keeping up on fashion, food, wine and culture is our business, and Union Square is our home turf. 

When we asked our lifestyle experts where they would send friends and family visiting the area to relax or pick up last minute additions to their holiday party attire, their responses were wide-ranging and on-trend. Take a look at what our connoisseurs recommend:


Take a peek into Fashionphile, the “Hand Bag capital of Union Square,” located on Maiden Lane right off of Stockton St.  As our Private Membership Director Antoine says, “It is a perfect place for ladies attending the holiday party of the year. At Fashionphile you can get the dream bag to go with your fabulous party dress.”  Fashionphile is the leading secondary market, Premium Luxury Handbag store in the Bay Area with a large inventory of international styles and designers to fit your style and budget.

Need a break from all of the shopping, or just simply want a true San Francisco experience?  Antoine recommends that you “Step into the lobby of the iconic Westin St. Francis to witness the lavish holiday decor and dazzling tree ornaments, then finish the evening with a sumptuous dinner at San Francisco's own Star Chef Michael Mina's Bourbon Steak.  The restaurant offers one of the most mouth-watering menus for a steak dinner, a consummate holiday tradition.”  Don’t have time for a full dinner?  Enjoy a special holiday tea offered in the Oak Room on the weekends until December 22nd.
