THE SIDEBAR STORY

“Cocktails till 2am” Since 2008

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 and storied drinking destinations. Perched on the upper floor of the historic brick building that once housed the infamous Emerald Lounge and the original Lost Leaf when it was an underground art gallery, the spot features a swinging ’60s cocktail vibe and décor that was mapped out by renowned designer Judith Testani (before she went on to renown with Olive & Ivy and Fox Restaurant Concepts 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 warm yet funky-looking illuminated bar.

Created as an urban respite to soothe the savage tempo of the city, SideBar was built to bring class and style to Phoenix without the pretension and ego that tends to afflict so many places of character. “We’re all dressed up so you don’t have to be” has been a guiding concept second only to our commitment to creating genuine hospitality that speaks as much to the love and care of our clientele, as to the masterful cocktails we pour for their enjoyment.
