Bite of Union Square is August 24th!

Dear Union Square Tenants,


It’s that time again for our annual summer tenant appreciation event, the Bite of Union Square! As we do every year, we have planned this event in partnership with the Union Square retailers and service providers to be an afternoon of great food, fun, giveaways, and live music.


The 2022 Bite of Union Square will be held in the Two Union Square Upper Courtyard Wednesday, August 24th from 11:30AM to 1:30PM. This year will once again feature the Seattle LIVE Band, playing hits from the 1960s and 1970s. Many of your Union Square eateries will be providing complimentary food items and our non-food retailers will have fun giveaways. We will be collecting business cards for a drawing of excellent prizes donated by your Union Square retailers; be sure to bring yours!  We want to especially thank our participating Union Square retailers!


If you have any questions regarding this event, please contact us directly at  Please note that Tenant Services will be closed during the event to allow your Tenant Services Team to join you in person.


All tenants of Union Square are invited. Please encourage everyone from each of your offices to join us at the 2022 Bite of Union Square. We look forward to seeing you there!
