About the restaurant
Quiessence is a fine dining, true farm to table restaurant located at The Farm at South Mountain, a 10 acre oasis by South Mountain. We have a 2 acre organic garden onsite that we utilize as much as possible for our dishes. Our menu changes regularly based on local and seasonal availability. We offer tasting menus with the option of doing 3, 4 or 5 courses. The restaurant itself is housed in the original farmhouse of the property giving the restaurant plenty of rustic charm. Patio dining is also highly sought after when the weather is nice.

Five course meal with wine pairing was memorably outstanding (all of it). The service was top notch, in a comfortable setting, quiet enough to converse without raised voice.

About the restaurant
We believe a dinner over amazing food should be an experience that brings people together. The desire to produce lifelong memories over a meal comprised of locally sourced (when possible) seasonal ingredients coupled with an internationally recognized wine program rarely seen in the US - excites us. These delectable dishes that are meant to be shared with family and friends is the conduit for building fond memories. We long for our guests to feel welcomed and relaxed with a casual-elegance that shines long after the last forkful and interesting sips.

About the restaurant
Downtown Phoenix's Most Visually Stimulating Cocktail Experience Yet...

Tucked behind the curtains of DTPHX's Wren & Wolf, Trophy Room is an unplugged sensory elevating cocktail experience unlike anything else in the valley.

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.

Great find. Drinks were amazing. Seating was shared, so if you looking for an intimate vibe, this is not your place.

Avanti, a Valley tradition since 1974. . . Dramatic, crisp black and white interiors, candlelight and a quiet atmosphere.

We went last night and they had a jazz musician. We sat at the bar and had drinks for happy hour, appetizers and a salad. It was great and highly recommend. Great environment and service!

Cocktail Bar
Downtown Phoenix
About the restaurant
BARCOA Agaveria is a basement bar that celebrates the spirits of Mexico. Serving imaginative craft cocktails and a vast list of agave spirits, BARCOA is often described as "vibey," "sexy," and "the time of my life" (says some dude from Mesa). Agave spirits such as tequila, mezcal, bacanora, raicilla, and sotol, are the stars here, available as flights, neat pours, or however you like.

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.
