Crestwood Plaza was a shopping mall located at 109 Crestwood Plaza in Crestwood, Missouri that opened in 1957. It was the first major mall in the St. Louis area, having various stores, art galleries and studios. The mall would close in 2013, followed by its demolition beginning in 2016 through 2017 when it was to be redeveloped into other businesses and possibly housing, although since 2018 redevelopment has been delayed, which continues to this day.

Exhilarama was an entertainment facilities chain that usually had various rides, laser tag, a snack bar, prize redemption area, party facilities and an arcade included in its setup. The Crestwood Plaza mall had an Exhilarama facility for several years. Its games ran on tokens. This location was designed by local architectural and engineering firm Etegra.
