Citizen R+D - Closed

7111 E. 5th Ave.
Scottsdale, AZ 85251


  • Wednesday- Saturday: 7 p.m.- 2 a.m.
This cozy, intimate Scottsdale lounge is all about its craft cocktails: a lambic sorbet made from raspberry-flavored beer, then turned into a slushy by an old-fashioned paint-can shaker; a berry-and-lemonade punch made with hand-stirred dry ice; and a gin-and-tonic cooked up in a double boiler from 100-proof vodka distilled over dried juniper berries, lemon rinds, and cardamom. There are drinks here made from cotton candy, or fire, or with tiny bottles of bitters inverted into them. If that’s not exclusive enough for you, check this out: one telephones the bouncer to be let into this 28-seat lounge. If there’s room, he’ll come get you and escort you into R&D’s cozy interior, where you’ll enjoy drinks made table-side with hard-to-find ingredients you've never tasted alongside your hooch before.
