  • From fun bars to the many restaurants that are offered here, you won't be bored while walking around and taking in Westgate Entertainment District. This is the perfect place to stop before catching a game at the Cardinals stadium, or if you want to see a game, just choose one of the many sport oriented restaurants. One of the many things that I like about coming here are the outdoor spaces. They have couches and chairs where you can relax and take in the beautiful day. The amount of people that come here come because it's so warm and welcoming. Definitely check it out if you're in town and need some fun !
  • Anyone that comes here already knows how amazing it is!! Especially the bars and Dave and busters. The food with a theatre right at hand! I love the car shows, it is something you should not miss! Many events take place here so you can’t get bored of you plan out your day right! Plus it’s right next to the hula arena and cardinals stadium!!
  • It's always a good time here. The variety of stores and the layout of the grounds is so appealing. Everything is easy to get to and parking is aplenty. This visit was to the Easter bunny for pictures. It was a very nice setup but the company running it didn't have enough people staffed for the event so the wait was longer than it needed to be. Other than that, it was a nice offering from the shopping center.
  • A nice collection of restaurant and entertainment options including several national chain restaurants plus a few local ones. There is a nice size AMC movie theater, bowling alley, and sports/concert arena. The area is nicely laid out, with benches and common areas, and very clean. The one downside IMHO is the place feels very sterile, there are no residents nearby so the area has the vibe of an amusement park restaurant area rather than any kind of "real" vibe. Certainly a good place to eat and drink prior to or after a movie or event at the arena, but otherwise I'd recommend searching for a local eatery.
  • Great place to walk around and lots to do. If the weather is nice...go sit by the fountains. Kids can run and play in them. There are bigger fountains on the south side, those can not play in. But the one in the grass area, you can run in them. Grab a lunch and enjoy a day here. Plenty to eat and do. I hope they expand. They need more around the stadium.
