Bobby C's Lounge & Grille - Closed

1140 E. Washington St. Phoenix, AZ 85034 | Central Phoenix | 602-252-2273

Location Description:

Small, slightly upscale bar and restaurant specializing in soul food, and especially catfish. Great place to hang, and enjoy a cocktail or even just a glass of grape Kool-Aid with your catfish nuggets or smothered pork chops. There are superb desserts such as red velvet cake, banana pudding, and peach cobbler. The clientele, mostly African-American businessmen and women winding down after work with a cocktail, are often found swaying to the smooth beats of live jazz or soul artists performing at the restaurant throughout the week. Local DJs also spin R&B and Motown hits from every decade on Fridays and Saturdays. Downtown holds so many undiscovered treasures, and BC's is definitely one.
