SideBar

1514 N. 7th Ave. Phoenix, AZ 85007 | Central Phoenix | 602-254-1646

Location Description:

Boasting retro-futuristic swank, a relaxed upscale vibe, and a staggering selection of beer and wine, the always-stylish SideBar has become one of downtown Phoenix's premier drinking destinations. Perched on the upper floor of the historic brick building that once housed the Emerald Lounge and the original location of the Lost Leaf, the spot features a swinging '60s cocktail vibe and décor that was mapped out by renowned designer Judith Testani (of Olive & Ivy fame). A mix of mid-century retro and more modern elements -- including the programmable light wall and Paul Christiansen-like ceiling lamps -- SideBar's digs are matched in beauty by the precision cocktails served at the funky-looking illuminated bar. Try such tasty concoctions as the White Rabbit and the Psychedelic and see if you agree.
