The Phoenix Public Market was always a great place to spend your afternoon. After some revamping, they’ve finally stepped up their game. They now have a full-service supper menu. What’s more is that they also have an all-night happy hour. We thought you would like that. The popular downtown Phoenix café’s dinner menu is available every day, starting at 5:00 pm. With items like prime rib, porchetta, leg of lamb, or even whole cauliflower, the food has a home-cooked-by-grandma aesthetic that you’re sure to love. The all-night (from 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm) happy hour is also good. Nothing pairing up a homemade meal with the freshest ingredients with a delicious craft beer.
It’s been about four years since downtown Tempe has seen a new hotel. Some of you may be wondering why Tempe needs a new hotel. Well, we’ll tell you. We all know that economy could be doing a lot better (duh), but the business development area near Tempe Town Lake on Rio Salado continues to see growth. With those new businesses comes more people to the area, not to mention the thousands of out-of-state ASU students. The Residence Inn by Marriott will have all the luxury features you can want. Our favorite part is the roof-top pool that’s level with A-Mountain. The hotel is scheduled to open on September 26 and will be hosting a ribbon cutting event in early October.
Now that we’ve convinced you to view this urban property, don’t miss Blue Hound Kitchen & Cocktails where executive chef Stephen Jones and master mixologist Jacques Bezuidenhout have complimented the already innovative “gastro-lounge” concept with their decadent menu items and lavish cocktail creations.
