Main Gate District

Discover flavor, style, and local culture at the gateway to The University of Arizona.

Welcome to Main Gate Square

The buzzing Main Gate Square district isn't just a place to re-live your college years. Sure, it's located right next to the University of Arizona and it's the go-to place to shop for UofA gear but you'll also find haute couture, name-brand denim, hand-made gifts, and home decor.

Restaurants offer delicious fare from around the globe and fit for any budget - Burritos, Sushi, Falafel, BBQ, Fro-Yo, they've got that. If you're looking for something to sip on, craft beers and cocktails always hit the spot and some of the best cafés in the city are serving up freshly brewed coffee and tea every day of the year.

Tucson's perpetual sunshine means it's always a good time to sit outside and revel as sports fans gather to cheer on the hometown Wildcats. Bear Down Fridays, held the day before U of A football games feature the school's cheer squad, marching band, and mascots, and area businesses offer up specials to keep the school spirit flowing.

Main Gate is also one of the most accessible entertainment districts in the entire city. It's close to the center of town and just a quick trip from the foothills on the north side. Proximity to the University means ample public parking and this area also happens to reside right along the Sun Link Streetcar route making it a perfect place to start or end your exploration of Tucson's Downtown.

Whether you're a die-hard Wildcat fan or just looking for some of Tucson's authentic flavor, you'll find exactly what you're looking for at Main Gate Square.
