This isn't your average outdoor shopping mall. Thanks to its dancing fountain and light shows, complimentary San Francisco-style trolley rides, fine dining options (Katsuya, Din Tai Fung), 70-plus premier retailers and even luxury apartments, the retail concept is more entertainment than shopping mall. With alfresco dining areas and open grass fields, The Americana at Brand cultivates more of a leisurely, joie de vivre experience rather than a quick in-and-out of the store errand run. Designed and operated by Rick J. Caruso (also the force behind the Westside's similarly designed outdoor mall, The Grove), The Americana at Brand offers the same kind of urban oasis that makes it a top tourist attraction and a favorite among LA locals. Heavy hitters include Bloomingdales, Nordstroms, Anthropologie, H&M and Barneys New York, while smaller boutiques range from Lululemon Athletics, Free People and J. Crew to Tiffany & Co., Kiehl's and Sur La Table.
