BEST PLACE FOR A TWILIGHT DRINK Phoenix 2006 - The courtyard at the Royal Palms Resort and Spa
Not everyone can hang out at this refurbished historic hotel on Camelback Road ? its bar and restaurant are among the only places in town that ban blue jeans. But that's okay with us, mainly because there's something refreshing about seeing people a little bit dressed up, even if it is mostly in khaki. And we really can't think of a more elegant place to drink as the night falls than the Royal Palms' lovely courtyard, which features a full bar, excellent service, and surprisingly affordable noshes. But please: Don't tell the riffraff. This isn't for them, after all.
