The Rose Garden

The Rose Garden
Nikki Charnstrom
The Rose Garden, housed in the U.S. Bank Center building in downtown Phoenix, is an elevated cocktail bar with a whimsical air. The space is decorated with vintage artwork, jewel-toned wallpaper and furnishings, flowers, a peacock (yes, a peacock) and cocktails served on makeshift toadstools. Edible flowers and over-the-top garnishes add color, making every drink worthy of social media. Popular choices include the La Puesta del Sol, a concoction of Fresno chile, hibiscus-infused sotol, rum, vermouth, lime, tamarind agave, mole bitters, chamoy and chile powder; and the Harvest Essence, a blend of El Güel mezcal, Ramazzotti, velvet falernum, lime, turmeric, grapefruit and sage. The drinks are complemented by small bites such as pork belly sliders and prosciutto-wrapped dates.
