Limelight, Gossip, and Special Events

If you think the only place to head for nightlife and entertainment is Scottsdale or downtown Phoenix, think again. If you haven't been to downtown Gilbert lately, it's a must-do!

Gilbert Road, north from Elliot Road to South of Gilbert Trail Crossing (the Canal) is teeming with both old and new places to go, people to see, and things to do.
Enjoy dining at any of the establishments noted as a Phoenix New Times "Best of...":

  • Nico's Heirloom Kitchen (Chef Gio Osso)
  • Barrio Queen (Upscale Mexican Cuisine)
  • Postino's (best Wine Bar)
  • And much more!

For a step back into earlier Gilbert, walk the main street south to find:

  • Liberty Market
  • Joe's BBQ
  • The Farmhouse (breakfast and lunch)
  • Arts & Antique Stores
  • Champions Sports Saloon
  • Barber Shop
  • Gilbert Historic Museum

Need a greater sense of community? You'll find it in downtown Gilbert - a curious blend of old school family values, modern conveniences, local flavor, sprinkled with everything fun.

What's Nestled in Between? - THE NEAR FUTURE (SEE BELOW)


The term "groundbreaking" is a weekly occurrence in the Heritage District of Gilbert. Currently under construction and set to open this Fall is Dierks Bentley's Whiskey Row country music venue. To its south, is a new mixed use property (office, restaurants).

Next to the GCM Liquor Store (known for its variety in specialty craft beers and spirits) is a new office building to be, currently just digging in the dirt.

There is talk among Town of Gilbert officials of further development on either side of Gilbert Road (West and East) to add more depth to the historic community to include more entertainment and restaurant venues, and public art attractions.

The growth in Gilbert is far from haphazard instances: The town of Gilbert has a website that spells out its long-term revitalization plan.
