Looking for something to do this weekend? "Night Owl" is a quick guide to special nights at bars and clubs around town. We'll give you a few hints re: cover, dress code, music and atmosphere. Fridays mark Fridays with Jared Alan at District.
District's laid back lounge look, art adorned walls and modern design make it the perfect place to enjoy the kick back beats and reverse happy hour treats of Fridays with Jared Alan.
One of the highlight's of an evening at District is that the fancy and somewhat highfalutin flavor of the bar's decor does not apply to it's prices.
The Place: 320 N. 3rd St., Phoenix, AZ 85004
The Time: Every Friday, 10 p.m. - 2 a.m.
The Cover: Zero.
The Parking: Street.
The Art: Joshua Dean Wiley
's acrylic on lucite abstract pieces added a nice pop of color and chaos to the otherwise somewhat sterile and monochromatic experience that is District.
The Style: District's location within the Sheraton Hotel in Downtown Phoenix gives it a dressier clientele. The bar pulls in after game traffic so there is a more casual side but if you want to fit in with the surroundings be sure to step it up stylistically.
The People: A cool collection of city dwellers clinking, slinking and drinking.
What we loved: The booze bargains and the beats of DJ Jared Alan.
What we didn't love: The staff was dare we say, less than friendly. We saw a waitress bump into a guest and proceed to chew him out for it. So beware.
Are we going back? We could take it or leave it.
