A great,elegant,chill spot in the heart of downtown Phoenix ( located inside Hotel Palomar). The cocktails ( classic and inventive!) are potent and delicious and the food is equally satisfying.

Papardelle and flat iron were fantastic. LOTS of drink options. Good service. Nice relaxing atmosphere. Small seating area, but makes it intimate.
