Barguments - Don Woods Say When
This week Ross Simon ,who owns two award-winning cocktail bars in downtown Phoenix, Bitter & Twisted Cocktail Parlour and Little Rituals, joined the show for Barguments. The Rise Uptown Hotel is already home to another of Simon's concepts. On the ground level next to the swimming pool, hotel guests and the public can visit Lylo, an outdoor bar and restaurant.
Now, Simon is opening another bar on the property. Except this time, it's four floors up. Across the parking lot from Lylo and up the elevator, customers are transported to a historic 1960s and '70s-style lounge complete with wood furnishings, plush red carpet and gold accents.
Burgundy faux ostrich leather booths fill half of the space and a long bar, covered with a matching burgundy plush front, fills the other. Outside, a large patio fitted with misters, booths and outdoor sofas offers a view of the glowing lights of Phoenix. At sunset, Camelback Mountain turns pink in the distance.
