Where to Shop, Dine and Unwind in Downtown Phoenix

Posted on Thursday, June 6, 2019.


SHOP HERE -
 It’s no secret Phoenix can get hot during the summer months, but this popular farmers’ market—widely considered the city’s biggest and best—is held during the cooler evening hours so shoppers can beat the heat. Every Wednesday from 4 to 6pm, local produce vendors, bakers and artisans bring their best to the Downtown Phoenix Public Market for a weekly open-air shopping experience. Local food trucks are also on-hand, making it the perfect place to bring the whole family for an effortless (and fun) midweek supper.

WATCH A PERFORMANCE HERE - With three separate stages, Herberger Theater Center is considered Phoenix’s premier performance venue, arts incubator and advocate. The indoor venue, dedicated to the cultural and education development of the Valley, hosts a revolving calendar of pop-culture focused productions, including Freaky Friday, The Addams Family and Sister Act.

SOAK UP CULTURE HERE -  Since opening its doors in 1951, Phoenix Art Museum has emerged as the largest in the southwestern United States. The museum has hosted over 400 national and international exhibitions alongside its permanent collection, which has grown to include over 17,000 works of modern and contemporary art, photography and fashion design spanning the Renaissance to the present. Its interactive PhxArtKids gallery is suited to young art lovers of all stripes, while the Dorrance Sculpture Garden is the perfect place to while away a lazy Sunday.

IMBIBE HERE - Located, ironically, inside the former Arizona Prohibition Headquarters at the historic Luhrs Building in the heart of Downtown Phoenix, Bitter & Twisted boasts an award-winning, globally recognized cocktail program and innovative spins on traditional bar bites in one of the city’s most iconic venues.

LIVE HERE - This sleek residence in Edison Midtown offers a sophisticated urban living experience in one of the city’s most dynamic neighborhoods. Expansive windows showcase amazing sunrise and pool views, while elegant interiors include beautiful gourmet kitchens, Calcutta quartz countertops and hardwood floors. Represented by The Agency’s Jim Cavanaugh and Marilyn Cavanaugh, the residence is equipped with a host of high-end amenities, including a 2,000-square-foot fitness club, outdoor yoga area, poolside lounges and summer kitchens.
