Great place to shop, eat and enjoy live music. We went there at sunset, which was lovely. It is a great place to walk around, there's live music, lots of shops and restaurants.

Nice and cool. All the games we played were working. No issues there. Purchased the unlimited play for $50 - unfortunately she did not tell us it was for only certain machines. Would never have purchased it then. Went on a Wednesday so games were 1/2 off.

Very popular with students and most of the stores offer student discounts if you ask. It is an outdoor mall, but during the day, misters are on to help cool off the walkway. Beautiful pace and very clean, I love shopping here.

We had been on a long trip sight seeing ruins and canyons. So the last night we took a stroll through this beautiful outdoor mall. There are lots of spray misters to keep you cool no matter where you walk. The restaurants are all grouped together. They had a lot of nice comfortable outdoor seating areas to people watch. They...

Honestly we discovered the Tempe Marketplace kinda by accident when looking for a bookstore. They do have a Barnes and Noble but we quickly discovered that they have a lot more to offer as well. It's an open air shopping center with a little bit of everything. Nice little food court and a few restaurants that are a slightly more... More

Enjoy going to Tempe Marketplace for shopping and dining. The movie theatre is and grounds are always clean which is a huge plus. Not the best place to go when it's the dead of summer because it's all outdoors shopping.

We really like coming here, Tempe Marketplace is the place to be for shopping, dining, bar hopping, people watching, movies. Go it alone, bring a friend, take your spouse & try a different bar or restaurant every time you go. Really a very nice place to just hang out & enjoy some time with family. According to the younger crowds,... More

Tempe Marketplace has great options for families to eat or shop. Really close to ASU Golf course and easy to get in and out. Lots of parking though veey little shade in the hot sun. Music even in the parking lot and outside shopping/gathering places made it a fun spot to hang out while we were in Tempe.

I decided to try their tuesday tacos night. There were horrible. Don't order them. I was served actual large pieces of fat. the tacos were so small that two bites would take care of them. I must add, however, that the manager of the place was very gracious and did not charge us for it and recognize the poor quality... More

Great area, near lots of really nice places to eat and they have lots of "hip" stores like JCPenney and old navy and Target! Nice atmosphere as well, handicapped parking, and they have it lit up nicely at night and they play cute music outside!
