The Park at the Pearl

Pearl, a former brewery that operated from 1883 until 2001 and a landmark just north of downtown, today is a groundbreaking culinary gathering place where you can eat, live, learn and play on the banks of the San Antonio River.
The 22-acre Pearl site is home to the Culinary Institute of America, San Antonio and Aveda Institute San Antonio, the year-round Pearl Farmers Market. Pearl restaurants include Il Sogno Italian Osteria and the Sandbar Fish House and Market, both by CIA graduate and James Beard Award-nominated chef Andrew Weissman, and La Gloria Ice House by CIA graduate chef Johnny Hernandez. Pearl is also known for the Melissa Guerra Latin American kitchen store, the Twig book shop, Adelante Boutique, Run Wild Sports, The Synergy Studio and Bike World. The Center for Architecture houses the AIA San Antonio and the Architecture Foundation of San Antonio. Office tenants at Pearl include the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber, the Nature Conservancy, the CE Group, WestEast Design Group and other creative firms. Event space includes the Pearl Stable, the Pearl Studio and the newly completed Pearl Park, a community gathering space which includes amphitheater seating overlooking a stage alongside the San Antonio River Walk.
