The two-story, 22,300-square-foot entertainment destination is located adjacent to Chase Field in Downtown Phoenix and is now the largest freestanding sportsbook in Arizona and the largest retail sportsbook to open in partnership with a major sports stadium nationwide. It also features a restaurant by renowned restaurateur Guy Fieri.
In a recent announcement, the company stated that this new, first-class sportsbook and full-service restaurant combo is 'unlike' any opened to date. The venue features a total of nine betting windows and 13 self-service betting kiosks as well as wall-to-wall flatscreen televisions, patio space, table, and plush lounge-style seating on both floors with a total capacity of more than 425. Private space is also available to rent.
An opening event was held on June 21 featuring remarks from Caesars and D-backs representatives, a first bite sampling of menu items and ceremonial first bets, as well as a donation of $20,000 by Caesars to the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation.

"We're extremely proud to bring Caesars Sportsbook and Guy Fieri's Kitchen + Bar to Chase Field and Downtown Phoenix," said Eric Hession, Co-President of Caesars Digital. "This destination provides sports bettors and non-sports bettors, locals, and visitors alike, with an experience they can't find anywhere else. Thank you to the Arizona Diamondbacks and Guy Fieri for making this possible."
"What an incredible day for our fans, sports enthusiasts, guests, and especially for our organization," said D-backs President & CEO Derrick Hall. "We are proud to partner with Caesars Entertainment and Guy Fieri, to bring a year-round first-class sportsbook, restaurant, and event space to downtown Phoenix. Everything about this dynamic venue, from the food to the design to the service, has been meticulously planned for an unmatched guest experience."
Bloc9 Architecture served as architect on the project in partnership with Borisoff Design Studio while The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company served as general contractor to create a venue that "conveys the Caesars Sportsbook brand in a modern way through a lively and contemporary space fit for a Caesar."
The opening of Guy Fieri's DTPHX Kitchen + Bar at Caesars Sportsbook marks the celebrity chef's first-ever full-service restaurant in Arizona. Designed in partnership with Fieri and led locally by Executive Chef Kayla Laasko, who brings experience from venues such as The Barking Bodega and Desert Diamond Casino, Guy Fieri's DTPHX Kitchen + Bar offers scratch-made food, signature and classic cocktails, and an extensive beer and wine menu.
The menu also features a combination of new recipes and Fieri's personal favorites from his other restaurants, including the world-famous Trash Can Nachos ($20) and award-winning Bacon Mac 'n' Cheeseburger ($18).
"I've worked with the Caesars team for nearly a decade opening restaurants all over the country together. They are the best of the best," said Fieri. "The idea of bringing this next-level restaurant concept to Arizona, a place where I have showcased more than 30 restaurants through 'Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives' over the years, was a no-brainer for me. Thank you to the D-backs and Caesars for making it happen."
