Your 90-minute experience featuring awe-worthy interiors, interactive decor, floor-to ceiling decadence that tells a story with each sip and sight, and of course jaw-dropping cocktails that taste just as amazing as they look.
There's just one catch – no phones or photos are allowed inside.
Those who still want to get their photo-fix will have their chance in Trophy Room's lavish entryway but you'll have to check-in your phone before you head into the main cocktail room.
Connect with those around you, pay attention to the details, and make memories you won't forget as we tell you a story through design and drinks of what would happen if the animals won?
Trophy Room is a 21+ concept, failure to bring ID will result in denied entry and loss of prepaid deposit.
Enter the lobby through the glass doors located in the alley to the northeast and down the middle elevator to the basement.
Reservations are only available for the basement bar. Please reference the Basement Bar Menu. Above BARCOA, check out the Cantina, a casual back-alley mezcal and tequila bar that serves affordable classic cantina cocktails, and the cheery patio, which features Provecho taco truck. Pop out anytime during your visit and bring food down to the basement.
BARCOA can be tricky to find. We're located on the southeast corner of 1st Avenue & Roosevelt, in the historic red brick building. Don't worry, you're not lost. It's just poor directional signage that the City refuses to fix.
We accept a limited number of reservations for parties of up to 6 for indoor and outdoor dining. We do not accept reservations for our firepits or lounge areas at this time! The rest of our seating is available for walk-in parties. Please respect a 2-hour dining limit given our limited space.

I had the scallops and my husband the burger with fries. Cooked to a perfect medium rare. My scallops were prepared beautifully, and the largest and sweetest scallops. We did start with the guacamole which would only be better if it weren't served cold; room temp would have enhanced the flavors more. Oh, and a wonderful wine and beer list. Thank you, we will return.More infoCarcaraPrice: Expensive• Contemporary American• Downtown Phoenix•4.5
