Culture, commerce and college life coalesce in the epicenter of Phoenix. This is where you’ll find indie restaurants, live music, pro sports, craft brews and cocktail culture. Historic neighborhoods like Roosevelt Row and Grand Avenue share an urban footprint with modern marvels like CityScape and the Phoenix Convention Center. No car is required here, thanks to Valley Metro Rail.
Things to Do in Downtown Phoenix
When the business day ends, the fun begins in downtown Phoenix.
This is where you’ll find sports arenas, live music, rooftop lounges, museums, theaters, art galleries and more than 200 restaurants. Downtown is also home to the Phoenix Convention Center and Arizona State University’s downtown campus. And it’s all served by one of the newest light rail systems in the nation.
CityScape, a two-block concentration of restaurants, bars, and fashion retailers, is home to an urban-chic bowling alley, a dance club and arcade, a live-music venue with 60 beers on tap, and a comedy theater and supper club with rentable meeting space.
Pro sports are almost always afoot at Footprint Center (home of the Phoenix Suns), or Chase Field (home of the Arizona Diamondbacks), and Roosevelt Row is the place to go for coffee shops, art-house movies and First Friday Art Walks.
