Welcome to Union Way

Walking through the Pearl District you may notice a shopping center that links Powell’s to the Ace Hotel. This is Union Way. Union Way is reminiscent of the intimate passageways in Paris with clean Scandanavian architecture, and inspiration from Middle Eastern bazaars. Union Way opened in summer 2013, and was created from two former nightclubs.

There are 9 shops throughout Union Way that range from 187 to 1,500 square feet. Union Way feels like a modern alleyway, brightly lit from the skylights of course, unless it is raining, which is very likely in Portland. Union Way is home to a variety of local and non-local shops including Danner, Self Edge, Bridge & Burn, and All Good. All shops offer Pacific Northwest-compatible goods including outdoor wear boots and functional yet stylish clothing.

Pearl District - Union Way

In true Portland fashion, Union Way is also home to some of Portland’s innovative bites to eat including beloved Boxer Ramen and Wailua Shave Ice. So, warm up with some ramen on one of Portland’s countless rainy days or cool off with a mountainous heap of unique flavored shave ice during the summer. Or, grab a taste of both for a complete Portland meal.

Union Way is a new kind of shopping experience that allows guests to experience climate and culture through eating and shopping. Wander through the shops, or use Union Way as a means to get from the West End to Powell’s and the heart of the Pearl District.
