Westgate Entertainment District, formerly known as "Westgate City Center" is a mixed-use development in Glendale, Arizona. Westgate is described as a super-regional destination for shopping, dining, entertainment, and commercial offices. Funded by millionaire New York architect Ron Elsensohn and anchored by the Gila River Arena, the former home of the NHL team Arizona Coyotes, the complex has 8,000,000 sq ft (740,000 m2) of retail space and is one of the premier entertainment destinations in the region, attracting over 22 million visitors annually. In 2011, the property went into foreclosure and reverted to lenders. The shopping center was reopened under the name Westgate Entertainment District, operated by Vestar Capital Partners, which also manages other properties in the Phoenix area.

  • It’s a shame this place isn’t kept up. Still building and can’t keep the surrounding area they have kept up. Garbage literally everywhere.

  • Very nice. Looked like they were setting up for live music: I'm sure this place is fun at night! Water fountain goes off every hour if you want to see a show! Nice candy shop and lots of good restaurants. One restaurant had a bowling alley in it, and I would definitely like to check it out next time I'm out there. Also, public restrooms were nice and there is a splash pad for the kiddos... or whoever wants to splash in it, I suppose.
  • Great spot on the west side of town with lots of places to eat, drink and have fun. There are a variety of restaurants with all kinds of food so you will find something you like. There are plenty of hotels around so you can just walk to anything in a short amount of time. There are a few places that have closed down so it looks a little janky but I’m sure they will replace them with cool spots.
