City Creek Center – Shopping Elevated

City Creek Center – Shopping Elevated

June 28, 2018
It's Utah's Rodeo Drive without the stuffiness. City Creek is home to the national, luxury, and local brands you love in one of the most unique shopping environments in the country.

Located just south of Temple Square, City Creek Center is two city blocks of unique shopping and dining in downtown Salt Lake City. The quasi open-air mall, complete with a fish-filled creek running through it, hosts luxury retailers and specialty stores under a retractable glass roof. A pedestrian skybridge over Main Street gives you unhindered access to more than 100 stores and restaurants.

The Stores

City Creek Center is destination shopping for everyone in the family - from luxury and trusted brands to local faves.

  • For kids and tweens: The Red Balloon Toy Store, Claire's
  • For teens: American Eagle, Cotton On, H&M
  • For ladies: Anthropologie, Bohme, Lush Fresh Made Cosmetics
  • For gents: Apple, Boss Hugo Boss, Allen Edmonds
  • For fitness buffs: lululemon, Foot Locker, Fabletics

The Dining

Whatever style of meal you're craving, it's here. The hard part is choosing between more than two dozen eateries.

  • Quick: Zimbu (Indian), J. Dawgs, Osaka Japan
  • Casual: Kneaders Bakery, Uncle Sharkii Poke Bar, Nordstrom Grill
  • Family: Johnny Rocket's, Brio Italian Grille, Cafe Rio
  • Fresh/healthy: Vitality Bowls, Roxberry Juice Co.
  • Fine dining: Brio Italian Grille, The Capital Grille

The Experience

City Creek Center is not your basic mall. Nope, it's also a place for:

  • Community events: Held throughout the year.
  • Fountain shows: Visit the fountain (just outside Nordstrom's) at the top of every hour from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Fish feeding: Kids may feed the fish every Saturday from 11 a.m. to noon. Meet at the trout pond near the Customer Service desk on Level 1.
  • Free stuff: Non-locals may pick up a free Passport to Shopping, a book of discounts to several stores and restaurants in City Creek Center. Locals can get one, too, by bringing an out-of-town guest.
  • Play Time: Kids can shake out their shopping legs at The Real Salt Lake Play Area, open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. year-round.


City Creek Center is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday. It is closed on Sundays. Restaurant and department store hours may vary. No need to scour city streets for a parking space. There's free underground parking for the first two hours.
