Irvine Spectrum Center

Irvine Spectrum Center is one of Southern California’s most popular shopping and dining destinations, visited by more than 15 million people each year. More than 130 retail stores, restaurants and entertainment venues come together at one of Orange County’s most energized retail experiences.

Known for its stunning architecture, Irvine Spectrum Center was inspired by the world famous Alhambra, the 13th century citadel that overlooks the city of Granada, Spain. The historic palace is comprised of buildings connected by magnificent courtyards, which feature an exotic blend of classic architecture with a colorful overlay of Spanish details such as tile mosaics and elaborate carvings.

Now firmly established as one of Southern California’s premier shopping destinations, the future continues to be bright for Irvine Spectrum Center and Orange County’s successful retail market. In addition to the variety of shopping, Irvine Spectrum Center features an assortment of cafés and restaurants and one of the country’s largest movie theater complexes, Edwards Irvine Spectrum 21 Cinemas and IMAX.

There is also live entertainment at The Improv Comedy Club, the number one comedy club in the U.S.
