Most of the stores have closed. The restaurant area still has quite a few choices however. The fountains were nice for the kids to play in, but if you are looking to shop go elsewhere.

Kids will love the splash pad on a hot summer's day. There are some quirky little shops teens will find interesting. Although it's across from the homeless shelter, this mall is regularly patrolled by bicycle cops, and we have never been bothered by anyone here. Parking is plentiful (and usually free) underground.

Needs more shops. Is strangely laid out. I didn't really like that it was outside, especially in summer. It is possible to spend a few hours there looking around.

How many times have I gone to The Gateway & not noticed The Depot? The Gateway is Salt Lake City's outdoor/indoor Mall & Theater Complex with Restruarants & just about everything. The concept of walking in the outdoors on a beautiful day is a great experience. My wife & I decided to listen to some Music ~ maybe catch a... More

This mall continues to grow along one street in Salt Lake downtown. Parking is available in garages and on the north end. The list of stores has no big department stores yet includes many of the pthers you would expect in an upscale mall.

Lots of good shops to look through. It is a shame we didn't discover this on our first day instead of our last night. It is a safe family area to walk through with many more options then the downtown shopping. We had a really good Japanese meal here.

The Gateway has a lot of individual attractions that add up to a pleasant experience. There is plenty of shopping, amongst varied retailers. However, if you want electronics, you will need to vist another location as both the Microsoft and Apple stores are at another Salt Lake city location. The choices of places to eat has become centralized around the... More

What a pleasant outdoor shopping/dining/gathering area! Absolutely outstanding ambiance. Park in the ridiculously inexpensive parking garage and then walk this two level outdoor mall. (If you buy lunch or dinner, most restaurants will give you a free parking pass for the garage.) Gas fires with wrap-around couch seating -- outdoors! -- are located every 50 to 100 feet it seems....

This is an outdoor experience that seemed visionary. Perhaps it failed since the City Creek Center opened. I was not impressed with the mix of stores that seem to cater to young people. It seems as though there are plenty of empty stores looking for tenants. It's too bad since the concept seemed promising. In fairness perhaps this place is... More
