Saligokh Street, known locally as 'Broadway', has some street artists, etc. The street is easy to find from the Amir Temur monument, just head away from the Uzbekistan Hotel. The Broadway is in the very center of Tashkent and connects two main squares of the city, Amir Temur and Independence squares. Tashkent’s Broadway is also one of the greenest parks in the city with a huge area of shady trees and beautiful fountains.
There are many shopping centers, fashion shops, boutiques, restaurants, and cafes are located on and around the Broadway in Tashkent. Here you may also pick up some handmade crafts, souvenirs and bric-a-bracs.
The 'mirstore' just off of Saligokh Street has a modern supermarket, coffee bar and hugely overpriced fashion stores. This area, known locally as "Demir," also has MirBurger, which has burgers, pizza and local dishes at reasonable prices. There is also a Georgian restaurant ("Tblisi") and a Chinese restaurant. There is a heavy police (militsiya) presence here and foreigners are not often, but occasionally asked for their documents. It is advisable to keep a photocopy of your passport and visa with you, but leave the originals in the hotel safe.
Recently, modern designer fashion and shops selling luxury goods from famous international brands have started to appear in Tashkent. Catering for the wealthy, these can be found in the Broadway area, Amir Temur street and Pushkin street.
