Downtown Portland’s home for big-brand shopping, Pioneer Place houses the major brands that fashionistas crave, including Louis Vuitton, Tiffany & Co., Tory Burch, Camper, Scotch & Soda, Kate Spade and more.

At this multi-block shopping center, connected by a sky-bridge over S.W. Fourth Ave., you can buy that Swarovski crystal-covered watch, cozy up in a new J. Crew sweater or scope out the latest trends at teen-favorite H&M.

For shoppers who have worked up an appetite — or those just looking for a quick bite downtown — Pioneer Place has a deliciously expansive food court filled with lunchtime favorites like sushi, pizza and gyros. Visitors can sip a local beer at Yard House or experience happy hour with a side of bowling, ping-pong, skee-ball and ‘80s video games at Punch Bowl Social. Or grab a steaming cup of locally roasted coffee to put a skip in your step at Portland Roasting Coffee.

Pioneer Place is also home to a Regal Cinemas location, where the latest releases are shown in high definition and 3-D inside six stadium-seating theaters. Before the show begins, visitors can stop by their café and game room, or rent out their party room for a special event.

The shopping center is accessible via the MAX Green and Orange lines, which both make stops at the Pioneer Place/S.W. Fifth Ave. MAX station. Several bus lines, including the 1, 8, 9, 12, 19 and 94, also stop less than a block away.
