French Kiss

Naughty girl finds heaven on earth — at the Mondrian

We're having loads of fun, and although this isn't the type of place I could afford to frequent, the extravagant atmosphere is the bomb. The concierge area is all fluffy and feminine, with pink curtains and fur everywhere, as well as a designer fragrance shop. There's a modeling agency downstairs, surrounded by wavy, white-leather deco couches that snake across the plush burgundy carpet to cover half the length of the room. There are even artsy gray designs painted on the friggin' sidewalks. It's "Venus in Furs" for the new millennium. I've personally never seen anyplace so extravagant in Phoenix, and that includes Scottsdale (there's also a Mondrian in Los Angeles — I haven't been there, either).

After some more swilling, swearing, and revisits to the numerous themed rooms, CooKie and I head back to our own 'hood to catch the Chico Chism memorial show at the Rhythm Room on Indian School. We're already talking about going back to the Mondrian sometime. That place just has a certain je ne sais quoi. Best pronounced zhen-uh-say-kwa. With a pretentious French accent.
