Indulge In Botanically Inspired Sips At This Sumptuous Cocktail Bar


Moody cocktail bar with velvet-upholstered seating, wood tables and botanical-inspired wallcoverings.

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but virtually everyone can agree that downtown Phoenix’s newest cocktail bar, The Rose Garden, holds that quality in spades. Indeed, beauty is at the heart of both its menu (think a pastel rainbow of botanically inspired sips) and its design.

Located in the landmark U.S. Bank Center, The Rose Garden celebrates sumptuousness with moss green walls, banquette seating, brass accents and just the right amount of wood grain. A sapphire-hued peacock floats above the main dining room, its presence nodding to the origin story behind the design concept in which a peacock and rose garden compete for admiration.

The well-executed details are no surprise considering the developers behind The Rose Garden are Chiara Katz, Josh Katz and Moe Murillo, the same trio who created Sip Coffee and Beer as well as 36 Below.

“We wanted to do something elevated and sophisticated,” Chiara explains. “The downtown market is becoming a destination for nightly entertainment, and we wanted to be a part of it.”

In addition to cocktails and tapas, The Rose Garden offers 2,000 square feet of interior space, a newly opened patio with about 40 seats and, due to open in 2023, a private room for up to 25 guests.
