With its mix of retail, restaurants and nightlife, this $500 million complex in downtown Phoenix takes up two city blocks and has spurred a rebirth in surrounding blocks. Find things to do, restaurants, bars, and hotels and resorts in Cityscape below.
If you're looking for things to do in Cityscape, check out Stand Up Live, a comedy club featuring alums from the likes of Saturday Night Live, MTV and late-night talk shows. Next door, local and regional rock bands take to the stage above the beer taps at Copper Blues, and 810 Billiards & Bowling offers some classic bar games. Nearby, the world’s biggest pop, rock and country acts land at Footprint Center, also home of the NBA’s Phoenix Suns. You can also get your shopping on at Urban Outfitters, and for families in the area, the main Cityscape complex has a large splash pad for youngsters to run around.
The Cityscape area offers a mix of both fine dining and casual eats. For an elevated experience (and view), check out Blue Hound Kitchen & Cocktails next to the Kimpton Hotel Palomar Phoenix. Mexican spots such as Blanco Tacos + Tequila Downtown Phoenix and Chico Malo showcase the region's Sonoran dishes, while New American restaurants such as The Arrogant Butcher and Dog Haus Biergarten will get you your fix of burgers and dogs. But that's not all: there's Italian offerings at The Strand, Hawaiian bowls at Ahipoki, Nashville hot chicken at Monroe's Hot Chicken, and more lowkey fast casual options such as Chipotle, Five Guys, and Potbelly Sandwich Shop. Finish off with a dessert from The Yard Milkshake Bar.
Cityscape is home to some of Greater Phoenix's most iconic cocktail spots — namely Bitter & Twisted Cocktail Parlour and Little Rituals, both from local spirits mastermind Ross Simon. For whiskey aficionados, check out Phoenix Bourbon Room, and for a dark bar kind of vibe, Pigtails has you covered.
Stay in style at the Kimpton Hotel Palomar Phoenix, where Lustre Rooftop Bar offers city views, drinks and one of the city's best rooftop pools. Directly next to Cityscape in the Luhrs City Center is a building shared by Residence Inn by Marriott Phoenix Downtown and Courtyard by Marriott Phoenix Downtown, as well as Little Rituals.
