Bass Pro Shops built their first New England location at the Patriot Place; it was among the first stores to be announced and opened in the complex. It includes an animatronic shooting range and overlooks a small swamp that was once part of a larger one that the store was built over with land reclamation. Many events are held there as well.
Patriot Place has various restaurants, such as CBS Scene, which features American cuisine. Around the complex are over 125 HD televisions showing games by the Patriots, as well as classic programs once shown on CBS. Every booth in the restaurant is accompanied by a television and can control the music playing from a small speaker above the table. There is a terrace overlooking the stadium, and a nightclub (Level One) open on Thursdays. Other restaurants include Bar Louie, Five Guys, and Red Robin.
Cinema de Lux was launched by Showcase Cinemas with a location at the complex. It is aimed more upmarket with an American-style restaurant and a live music venture known as Showcase Live. The theater has 14 screens. There is also a bar and restaurant inside called Studio 3.
