Concierge.com's insider take:

Not so long ago, the Pearl District was just a bunch of warehouses. Gradually, a few galleries moved in, some lofts were converted to live-work spaces, some ambitious new restaurants opened their doors, and a thriving example of "new urbanism" was born. Today, newly erected condos are packed with young singles and couples who enjoy easy access to the restaurants, wine bars, spas, galleries, and boutiques that have staked their claim in this now highly desirable part of town. Avid shoppers will find everything from locally designed party dresses at Bubble Boutique to antique and contemporary furnishings at Cielo and Hive to great shoes at Sole and fine art and photography at Butters and Blue Sky Gallery. Numerous eateries and watering holes sprinkled throughout the area make fine places to regroup and give the credit cards a rest. Jameson Fountain fills with splashing tots in the summer months, transforming the otherwise quiet square into a popular hub for families. The first Thursday of every month, the galleries stay open late, streets are closed, and the whole neighborhood turns into one big block party (visit www.firstthursday.org for more information).
